Booker says he shouldn’t be held responsible for Newark water agency corruption

The complaint borrows generously from a 2014 state comptroller’s report that accused Linda Watkins-Brashear, the agency’s former executive director and a political ally of Booker, of gross mismanagement and widespread corruption.

The report alleges Watkins-Brashear received more than $600,000 in severance packages, used a checkbook from the agency to write herself $200,000 in unauthorized payouts, and awarded millions of dollars’ worth of no-bid contracts to her ex-husband, close personal associates and agency employees.

Shameful.
