We don’t know if this is true or not, but we’re supposed to believe survivors, right? It certainly made for an interesting Twitter Moment on Saturday — we’re curious if we’ll hear from Booker next week.

In short, we have an anonymous Twitter user going by @TheeDeepThroat posting a lengthy piece to Google Docs accusing Booker of assault.

Interesting addendum: “I am not a woman. I am a man. So I am not holding my breath in thinking that this will be anything but largely ignored on the left.”

Here’s the highly condensed version:

The man says he contacted Ronan Farrow but got the runaround:

So on October 7th, I contacted Mr. Farrow, albeit anonymously, providing him with some of the details of my story and with a number of follow up questions. 4 days later he responded asking for a phone conversation. I replied the following day with a way to contact me and an open schedule. Between October 12th through the 15th, I emailed him 2 additional times with the final email stating that I would move onto trying to contact another journalist and wished him well. It wasn’t until this morning, 8 days after his initial response that he contacted me again with an email, a voicemail and text message. This put me in an awkward position of re-evaluating his intentions and I have yet to respond to him. The second journalist I contacted following my interaction with Mr. Farrow has not responded to me either.

Here’s a bit of the very long piece by TheeDeepThroat, who claims to be a liberal gay man who considered Booker a hero:

Here is a description of the incident as I described it to a lawyer: I stopped to use one of the building’s single-occupancy restrooms. Upon washing my hands prior to leaving, I heard knocking on the door. When it comes to these restrooms it is customary to knock first in case someone is using it, even though there is an inner lock. When I opened the door, Mr. Booker was there. He smiled and very gregariously said “Hey!” We engaged in some brief idle chitchat in the entryway and then he asked me to speak in private. What happened next, happened so fast that it was hard for me to comprehend what was going on. It was one of those surreal moments where what was happening was such a deviation and such a perversion of one’s natural daily routine that I hardly knew how to react. He pulled me into the restroom, albeit not too forcefully and slowly pushed me against the restroom wall. He said that “Being a hero was a serious turn-on”. He continued, “The Senate appreciates fine citizens like you. Especially this Senator.” He then put his left hand on my groin, over my jeans and began to rub. I seem to remember saying something like “What is happening?” It was a bit like having vertigo. He then used his other hand to grab my left hand with his right and pulled it over to touch him. At the same time, he disengaged from rubbing me and used his left hand to push me to my knees from my shoulder for what was clearly a move to have me perform oral sex on him. At that point, I pulled away quite violently and told him I had to go. I did not see him again before he left.

Well, do we give the accuser the benefit of the doubt … again?

Maybe it’s 4Chan trying to put one over on the national media; it’s possible. But if it’s fiction, Ronan Farrow ought to be able to straighten that out right away be saying he never received any such emails.

There doesn’t seem to be any response from either of Booker’s two Twitter accounts, so expect this to go nowhere unless one of the mainstream outlets picks it up, or Ronan Farrow follows up on the case.

In other words, expect this to go nowhere.
