Romney adviser: Corey Booker was 'taken to the woodshed' by the White House

Following the Romney campaign’s controversial ad featuring Cory Booker, the Newark mayor is speaking out, saying that his words were taken out of context.

Romney campaign adviser Barbara Comstock appears on Starting Point this morning to respond to Booker's criticism, saying that it’s the White House, not the Romney campaign, who did some creative editing with video of Booker.

“Corey Booker spoke the truth and then the White House took him to the woodshed and tried to take him out of context in their own tape,” Comstock says.
