In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker has been tweeting non-stop in an effort to keep constituents updated and attend to those who need help.

Booker has kept up constant communication, and at one point even invited Hurricane Sandy victims into his home to "charge devices" and "relax."

Despite staying busy, the mayor hasn't lost his sense of humor. When a Dublin resident tweeted at Booker asking to get a pothole fixed, Booker took a cue from Jay-Z in his response:

Booker wasn't the only one to put a spin on Jay-Z's hit "99 Problems" Monday. The rapper himself tweaked the words of the song while performing at an Obama rally in Ohio, rapping, "I got 99 problems but a Mitt ain't one."
