Deep Thoughts: Chris Christie's Vacation Days

Chris Christie complains a lot about public sector worker's vacation days.

The NJ state constitution mandates that when the Governor leaves the state that he give up authority to the Lt. Governor (previously the Senate  President) which means that a NJ Governor traveling out of state is on vacation.

Maybe if the Governor is traveling to Israel on a trade mission you could stretch to make the whole trip a work trip, but how about speaking to "committed conservatives" in DC, or stumping for embattled Wisconsin governors, or speaking for a presidential candidate, or hanging out at Disneyland, or etc., etc., etc.

If Christie is running the state from outside our borders then he is violating the state constitution.  If he is not then he is taking an awful lot of vacation.
