Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker is getting ready to spend a week living only on food stamps. Why? It all started with a Twitter spat after Mayor Booker Tweeted a Greek proverb:
Another Tweeter accused the mayor of wanting to redistribute wealth. Mayor Booker Tweeted back that investing in schools and nutrition would save money in the long run.
Then a self-described Army wife Tweeted that “nutrition is not the responsibility of the government.” That prompted the mayor to Tweet:
The woman agreed…and the food stamp challenge is on!
