All Newark Mayor Cory Booker needs is a cape in order to be officially considered a superhero. He’s rescued a woman from a fire, allowed strangers to stay at his home during Hurricane Sandy, and the list goes on. But last night, Booker took his heroics a step further by proving he can rescue animals as well as people. Booker came to the rescue of a dog that was left outside in the cold, personally loading the freezing dog into a police car and then calling the owner to scold him live on local news.
It just goes to show what a community can accomplish if people work together and try to get things done. But for Mayor Booker, this is nothing new. The possible future Senator engages in these sorts of acts all the time.
