Guadagno kicks sand at Christie for lolling on closed beach

Patricia A. Miller reports for the Brick Patch: 

Lt. Kim Guadagno, the second-in-command to Gov. Chris Christie and the Republican nominee to succeed the governor, blasted Christie on Monday over the controversial photo of him taking in the sun at the closed Island Beach State Park.
"It's beyond words. If I were governor, I sure wouldn't be sitting on the beach if taxpayers didn't have access to state beaches," Guadagno said in a statement issued by her campaign.
"We need to end the shutdown now. It's hurting small businesses and ordinary New Jerseyans," she said. "Instead of political games, Governor Christie, Speaker (Vincent) Prieto and Senate President (Stephen) Sweeney should pass a budget that delivers property tax relief and puts taxpayers first."
Christie defends himself after beach photo
Gov. Chris Christie addressed the issue of a photo of him on a closed beach during a television interview Monday, the third day of the state government shutdown in New Jersey.
