How long before we see verifiable corruption allegations against Baraka? How long before he undoes the good that Booker did? Remember, that Sharpe James and Marion Barry (among others) were urban populists and former civil rights activists. Baraka’s campaign exuded their message. When someone talks of solidarity and “you are all mayor” rather than specific plans (not to mention having a terrible prior record) and nuts and bolts, it is clear they are a corrupt populist.
