Following a budget stalemate between New Jersey’s Republican Governor, Chris Christie, and the democratic legislature that led to a shutdown of the government, America’s least-popular governor immediately left for vacation at the state-owned Island Beach State Park. While he and his family enjoy the 4th of July holiday at the park, authorities are blocking all other visitors from the destination, citing the budget impasse.
