‘Booker Fail’ attack site spells Newark mayor’s name wrong

American Commitment, a conservative advocacy group, has a new site BookerFail.com meant to highlight the Newark mayor’s “record of failure.”

The site features the sub-headline, “Corey Booker failed us.” However, the Democratic candidate for Senate’s name is in fact spelled “Cory.”

The group, led by the former vice president of Americans for Prosperity, Phil Kerpen, is backing Booker’s Republican opponent Steve Lonegan in the New Jersey open Senate election — to fill the seat vacated by the late Frank Lautenberg.

Booker is no stranger to misspellings.

At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, his campaign called for New Jersey Democrats to re-elect “Barak Obama.” Additionally, Booker’s first name has been misspelled as “Corey” by many major news outlets, including C-SPAN, ABC News, CBS News, NPR, PoliticoYahoo News, The National Review, The Huffington Post, BreitbartThe Wall Street Journal and The Daily Caller.

American Commitment spells his name correctly in their web video, though.
