Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) could face the consequences for grandstanding during day three of the Kavanaugh SCOTUS hearings.

In case you missed the shenanigans, see it all at this link. It’s worth it.

At one point, Booker referred to himself as Spartacus.

From New York Post:

Booker was claiming he was standing up for the release of classified documents written by nominee Brett Kavanaugh about the use of “racial profiling” at airports in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

Booker made a point of saying he was willing to get expelled from the Senate by releasing ­emails the committee had deemed classified.

His “Spartacus” quote was a reference to the 1960 Oscar-winning movie starring Kirk Douglas as leader of a slave revolt.

Booker later went on to accuse a reporter of violating the Constitution for asking him a question.

Now, Cory gets the worst news of his career (so far), as it has been learned that he may face an ethics review, per The Hill:

The Senate’s top two Republican lawmakers say Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) might be subject to an official review by the Senate Ethics Committee for releasing documents labeled “confidential” related to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s past work at the White House.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Hugh Hewitt on Friday that Booker’s decision — which the Democratic senator acknowledged violated the Senate rules — was “unusual” and that he wouldn’t be surprised if it was reviewed by the Senate Ethics Committee.

“Let me just say this. When you break the Senate rules, it’s something the Ethics Committee could take a look at. And that would be up to them to decide. But it’s routinely looked at the Ethics Committee,” McConnell said.

While ethics hearings generally amount to nothing more than a slap on the wrist, Democrat voters will have to decide whether or not they want to support a candidate in 2020 who has come under review by a panel of his peers.

Of course, that’s assuming Booker runs for president (he will, that’s what the grandstanding was for – to make a name for himself on a public stage).

In other words, Booker may have dampened his chances in 2020 more than he helped them.

Here’s a hilarious video featuring Booker’s antics:
