Newark Mayor Cory Booker Spars with Conan O'Brien

Posted: Updated:

Newark Mayor Cory Booker -- a digital politician who continuously uses Twitter and YouTube to reach out to the public -- is sparring with Conan O'Brien online. Booker yesterday posted a YouTube video responding to O'Brien's slight against the city in a "Tonight Show" joke. The Mayor declared the talk show host no longer welcome at Newark Liberty International Airport. See The Star-Ledger's report on for more details and Booker's video.
