NEWARK, N.J. -- Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker is prepared for a food stamp challenge.
He and one of his Twitter followers each plan to live for a week on the monetary equivalent of food stamps or less.
The mayor's week starts Tuesday. The North Carolina woman's began Sunday.
The mayor prepared for the challenge with a grocery purchase of $27.98.
Booker tweeted a picture of a receipt of the purchases he made Saturday at a Pathmark store in neighboring Irvington. The vegetarian mayor's grocery list included pink and black beans, corn and red delicious apples.
He'll never run for president, IMO. With his 'hands-on' style...the mayor position fits him perfectly. He can't do the things he does as President.
Cory Booker is a cool cat IMHO. Much too cool to be the mayor of newark.
Christy should be scared. People love shite like this.
apparently he's a vegetarian so it makes it a bit tougher to pull off.
i.e., I don't anticipate Christie taking the food stamp challenge. Cory Booker gave Christie a wicked bitch slap, in doing this.
