Acronym For Gov. Christie's PAC Website Has Some Laughing

TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) -- The new website for Gov. Chris Christie's political action committee has a lot of people LOLing.

The acronym for his leadership PAC's website,, is LMFAO, -- which is more commonly known as a vulgar Internet term or the pop group behind the hits "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I Know It."

Of course, the Internet noticed and the story took off, especially after it was tweeted by a Buzzfeed political reporter and the president of American Bridge.

"It's obviously an amusing story," Rider University Rebovich Institute of Politics Director Ben Dworkin told WCBS 880's Levon Putney.

But when it comes to potential political gaffes, Dworkin said, "I'm not sure anybody is going to care a week from now."

"It's amusing, it's kind of funny, it's probably a little bit embarrassing," Dworkin said, adding that Christie can easily turn this around.

"He's the kind of guy who wants to show himself as the politician who can laugh at himself," Dworkin said. "He takes advantage of them. I wouldn't be surprised if he turns this particular episode into a couple of late night TV show appearances."
