Mayor Cory Booker Accepts Twitter Challenge, To Live On Food Stamps For A Week
By this point, we're desensitized towards larger-than-life headlines of Newark Mayor Cory Booker. This guy is saving people from fires, handing out toilet paper to the distressed during blizzards, mediating on bulletproof vests for bodega owners and, who knows, maybe even preparing a Presidential run. So is there anything he can't do? Well, we're about to find out.
Been challenged by thoughtful people 2 go longer. I will & after Thanksgiving start MT @melmeyer23: Going to live on foodstamps 4 a wk?

Bare in mind that it will be video-recorded - the Mayor has always been a fan of broadcasting his activities, just like when he lost weight and kept followers in the loop on Facebook and Twitter. If this is political transparency in the Digital Era, well, alright then.
