Governor Chris Christie and family on closed NJ beach

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) has been filmed sunning himself on a beach that had just been closed to the public in the wake of a statewide government shutdown after lawmakers failed to agree new budgets.

Christie who spent the holiday weekend with his family at New Jersey’s Island Beach State Park initially denied he had been out catching the sun, until aerial photos obtained by NJA Advance Media showed otherwise. A spokesperson then tried to explain that the earlier statement only meant he had been wearing a baseball cap.

Christie was once considered a frontrunner for the Republican party leadership until another toxic scandal known as ‘Bridgegate’ derailed his wider political aspirations in 2013.

Members of his staff and political appointees were said to have deliberately caused massive and dangerous traffic jams by enacting malicious lane closures on the George Washington Bridge as an act of political retribution against local mayor Mark Sokolich (D) for failing to support Christie in the 2013 NJ gubernatorial election.

I hope that is not publicly funded security, inconspicuously stationed just behind and to the left?
