Newark Mayor Cory Booker agrees to live off food stamps for a MONTH
Mayor Cory Booker is known for his social media savvy, having helped direct emergency services in Newark, New Jersey to stranded citizens during snowstorms and field questions during Hurricane Sandy.

Now he's taking the talk offline as he bet a Twitter trash-talker that he could live healthfully on food stamps for a month.

The Democratic politician got into a dispute with a woman on Twitter who took issue with his dispelling of some free advice via Plutarch.

'An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics,' Booker wrote on Sunday morning.

User @MWadeNC took issue with the quote, as it could be interpreted as a call to redistribute wealth.


For their version of the challenge, each participant can only spend $35 on food and drinks per week and they must avoid loopholes like free food from friends or at catered events.
