Newark Mayor Cory Booker Takes Over for Chuck Norris


Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker has consistently made headlines as a dedicated public servant in the political realm. But this morning, he made them for a very different reason: charging into a burning building to rescue his neighbor from a house fire.

After Booker tweeted about the experience, and the ensuing flurry of news coverage, a new hashtag arose on Twitter: #CoryBookerStories, and also the inaccurately spelled #CoreyBookerStories, both of which chronicle his exploits in a manner similar to the infamous series of Chuck Norris jokes.

Now if only we could get #DaveBieterStories going. ... Anybody? Anybody?
