Newark Mayor Cory Booker

The National Review announced Wednesday that it is suing Newark Mayor and New Jersey Senate candidate Cory Booker (D) for records related to the murder of a teenager whom Booker said died in his arms after being shot.

Booker's mayoral spokesman James Allen said late Wednesday that police had found the records and would provide them to the National Review on Thursday.

The conservative publication previously cast doubt on the existence of a drug-dealer named "T-Bone" whom Booker claimed to have befriended. It has also been digging into Booker's claims that he held Wazn Miller in his arms as the teenager died of a gunshot wound in 2004.
