A column that Senator Cory Booker wrote for a Stanford university newspaper 26 years ago in which he admitted to groping a female’s breast when he was a teenager has resurfaced.

The decades-old column re-emerged this week given the controversy surrounding President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the allegations from a woman that he sexually assaulted her in high school.

Booker, a possible White House contender, has been among those calling for an FBI investigation into the assault claims that Christine Blasey Ford leveled against Kavanaugh.

Some conservatives have claimed the incident Booker wrote of in 1992 is proof of the New Jersey Democrat’s hypocrisy.

When he was a student at Stanford University, Booker admitted to grabbing a girl’s breast when he was 15 while they kissed at a New Year’s Eve party.

In the article, titled ‘So much for stealing second’, Booker wrote that the girl pushed his hand away when he groped her.

‘As the ball dropped, I leaned over to hug a friend and she met me instead with an overwhelming kiss,’ he wrote.

‘As we fumbled upon the bed… I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my ‘mark.’ Our groping ended soon and while no ‘relationship’ ensued, a friendship did.

‘The next week in school she told me that she was drunk that night and didn’t really know what she was doing. While she liked me a lot, she said she just wanted to be friends.’
