Chris Christie criticized for blizzard vacations

As southern New Jersey tries to crawl out from under NUMBER feet of snow (check out this great time-lapse video), they're being helped not by Gov. Chris Christie or Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno but by senate president and acting governor Stephen M. Sweeney, a Democrat. Why? Because both of the state's top executives skipped town before the storm hit.

Democrats are now complaining that she isn't pulling her weight.
