1. Newark Mayor Cory Booker vows to spend a week eating off of $4 a day, the average amount a food-stamp recipient receives. The idea arose from a spat between Brooker and a North Carolina mom over Twitter. 

    Brooker urged the woman, who disagrees with taxpayer funded school lunch programs, to take the “food stamp challenge” with him. While some critics are praising the Mayor’s pledge, others suggest Brooker is using the plight of the poor to score political points.

    Is Cory Booker an empathetic mayor or political panderer?
