Newark mayor: Snooki needs an intervention

It looks like Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi  is still having a little trouble staying on the right side of the law.

Newark, New Jersey mayor Cory Booker launched into a (basically one-sided) Twitter dialogue with Snooki Wednesday, taking her to task for appearing to text while driving.

Snooks tweeted, “Ugh stuck in newark traffic is no fun," and Booker wrote in response, “Snooki! I'm the mayor where R U so I can give u a ticket 4 texting & driving we needs revenue!”

But the pickle-loving star didn’t stop there. She followed up with another tweet: “Omg why I got a stick shift I will never know. Stop and go traffic I'm killen myself here."

Mayor Booker, however, had no sympathy. He tweeted in response to a follower who inquired whether or not Snooki's heard of Oprah Winfrey's "No Phone Zone" pledge,  “Definitely going 2 tell @Oprah on her. @sn00ki needs an intervention."

    That is how stupid she truly is; texting while driving and admitting it? She needs more than an intervention, she just needs to go away. Pathetic.

    We certainly appear to lower our standards a little more everyday as to what we want to see as entertainment. I fail to get the picture on that obese and low IQ woman. Who is she ? what does she do? another Paris Hilton without the money and "pedigree" but in the same category in terms of indulging in booze and drugs. Way to go people.

    I feel like everyone on here gets a kick out of ridiculing her yet in reality if the opportunity arose for u to be on some sort of reality tv show n make a name for yourself.. you would! I find the show to be highly entertaining and FYI.. these people are not all Italian.. jenny is mostly Irish.. Snooki is chillean.. Ronnie is part PR and Angelinas last name is Pivarnick.. hmm not Italiann to mee.. and they are from NJ, Staten Island, Upstate.. etc.. If you are going to comment them please know what u are talking aboutt!

    Why doesn't the mayor actually say.."yes snookie we will stop daytime construction and only work at night" or "snookie I'm stuck too, traffic is horrific"? Guess it's called if it's true, use smoke n mirrors.

    ps, show is great but only watch it because it's a "situation" hahah

    This so called celebrity doesn't even fit on the D list. And her lawyer throwing out how she cares for animals, and she almost finished getting her tech license, in what? Give me a break. The only animals she cares for are the other drunken swills she hangs with on that so called show she's on. Hope she saves those paychecks she is getting because when she has to head back to NY and home she is going to need it for rehab. If I was a resident of Jersey I would be putting pressure on those that grant the permits to the company filiming this show to prevent them from continuing. They are an insult to all of Jersey.

    I don't care for Jersey Shore, or any of the talentless people on the show, but I think Ms.Polizzi should have seen something like this coming.
    Maybe they should just cancel the show altogether?
