Booker's former law firm made millions from a contract with the Newark Watershed Authority, an organization that Booker was the chairman of as mayor of Newark. Booker received 700,000 dollars from his law firm while he was mayor of Newark. Booker claims he did nothing wrong and the $700,000 was rightfully due to him because of a separation agreement he had for work he did for them before he became Newark's mayor.
