Newark mayor Cory Booker got himself a bit of attention, after a private Twitter exchange with stripper Lynsie Lee went public. The dancer works for Portland, Ore., strip club Casa Diablo, which bills itself as a vegan strip club, and now it has introduced a new sandwich at Booker’s expense.

The club hopped on the opportunity to capitalize on all the press the U.S. Senate candidate has been receiving. According to the New York Post, the “Booker Burger” is a veggie patty sandwich with an extra helping of mayonnaise, since he’s the “mayo’-r of Newark” as club owner Johnny Diablo explained. The burger will run for $8 bucks with a “side of Lynsie Lee’s thighs.”
Booker, 44, and Lee both played the incident off as innocent, with Booker’s spokesperson brushed off the potential for scandal. Booker, who is single and vegetarian, has yet to respond to the news of Casa Diabolo’s new menu item.
