Booker Took Annual Payouts from Law Firm

Cory Booker pocketed "confidential" annual payouts from his former law firm while serving as Newark mayor, the New York Post reports.

"Booker, the front-runner in New Jersey's Senate race, received five checks from the Trenk DiPasquale law firm from 2007 until 2011. During that time, the firm raked in more than $2 million in fees from local agencies over which Booker has influence."

Explained Booker: "This was a settlement buyout for my interest in the firm. I had an equity stake, and we had a negotiated settlement."
