Christie vacationing in Puerto Rico during crippling winter storm aftermath in NJ

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/14/first-on-cnn-christie-vacationing-in-puerto-rico/?hpt=hp_t2

Washington (CNN) - On the heels of a major winter storm that blanketed his state with snow, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spent Friday at a resort in Puerto Rico with his family.

CNN was alerted to his whereabouts by a person who saw the governor poolside at a resort in San Juan.

Asked to confirm if Christie is in Puerto Rico, a spokesman for the governor said he is on a brief vacation with his family.

"After the storm had passed, the governor left the state this morning for a long weekend away with his family, and he will return Monday night," said spokesman Colin Reed.

In accordance with state protocol, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno is in charge of government business until Christie returns.

Democrats criticized Christie in December 2010 for not cutting short a family vacation to Disney World while a massive blizzard brought New Jersey to a standstill. Guadagno was also out of state at that time.

12. It's a US Territory. He doesn't need to be extradited. I wonder if that's why he went there and

not say, Jamaica. No one can say he was trying to make a run for it.

15. If he were charged with a federal crime a US marshall stationed on the island should be able to pick

him up. Federal law applies in PR. They have their own local laws, but the federal law is the same as the 50 states. If there were an official extradition I believe it would be treated like a normal interstate extradition and not an international one.

17. Well here's a cheap joke that Mr. Christie deserves.

Were other guests pouring buckets of water over him while trying to gently roll him back into the pool?

CNN was alerted to his whereabouts by a person who saw the governor poolside at a resort in San Juan.


Who spotted him, someone from the Marine Mammal Stranding Center? ( I know its low, but sometimes it feels like the only way to fight back)
