What Do Pedicures, Scotch, And Cigars Have To Do With The NJ Senate Race?

videoNew Jersey Republican candidate for US Senate, Steve Lonegan, made news recently for his response to a question about Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s sexuality. After Booker (Lonegan’s Democratic opponent) admitted he enjoys an occasional pedicure, Lonegan came out in favor of scotch and cigars.

In this video, Brian Donohue of The Star-Ledger, investigates. He goes for his first pedicure at Montclair’s Bangz Salon (“The hot stone massage was like buttah,” says Donohue.)  Afterward, he discovers that several “manly men” at Montclair’s Fume Cigar shop also enjoy having their feet pampered. As one fella put it: “Ya gotta take care of your feet.”

Donohue’s conclusion: “In the spirit of bi-partisanship…maybe Booker and Lonegan can get together and have a scotch, cigar and a pedicure.”
