MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ costs taxpayers $420K


MTV’s “Jersey Shore” GTL motto might now stand for gym-tax credit-laundry instead of gym-tan-laundry.

Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon told the Statehouse Bureau of The Star-Ledger of Newark imageand The Record newspaper he can’t believe taxpayers are paying “for fake tanning for `Snooki’ and `The Situation.”‘

The show centers on the cast living it up along the beach and boardwalk in Seaside Heights.

Seaside Heights Mayor P. Kenneth Hershey says the local economy gets a boost when the cast is in the town.

Gov. Chris Christie suspended the film tax credit program in 2010 to close a budget deficit.
