He’s failed as mayor of Democrat cesspool Newark, NJ, and now is throwing millions down an Internet rathole. So obviously he’s the heavy favorite to win the Senate seat of the late Frank Lautenberg. Just what America needs, another media creation with zero accomplishments in the Senate. Sound familiar?
Employees at Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s Internet start-up are looking for new jobs in anticipation that it’s about to fold, The Post has learned.
Well-placed sources said several staffers, including founding members, have been interviewing for positions at other tech firms since Booker’s company, Waywire, shuttered its lower Manhattan offices and laid off eight people earlier this year.
Some of the job-seekers have been telling people that it’s “just a matter of time” before the video-sharing Web site shuts down, sources said.
Waywire will likely remain in business only until after Booker’s widely anticipated election to the US Senate so that he doesn’t look bad before the voters, sources said.
Does anyone actually believe his failures would matter to Democrats?
During a debate last night, Booker deflected questions about Waywire, but afterward he denied it was going under.
“This company is in its infancy. Of course it has changed its business model. It’s going through changes,” he said.
Booker also refused to reveal his ownership stake, saying, “I’m a part of an ownership group and we’ve concluded not to discuss that.”
