New Jersey politician Joseph Vitale can't stand 'The Jersey Shore.' Back in December, the chairman of the New Jersey Italian American Legislative caucus blasted the MTV reality show, imploring Viacom to cancel it on the grounds that it "damages our state and cultural representations." Now that producers are scouting out a more seasonable climate (possibly South Beach in Miami) to shoot the second season of the trash-tastic series this Spring, Vitale is breathing a little easier.

"It's good news for us, but bad news for wherever they end up going," Vitale told PopEater on Monday. "If they are indeed moving to Miami, I feel badly for Miami. I don't care how they live their lives and what they do, but when they insult people and Italian-Americans, it is pretty reprehensible. In New Jersey, we are proud of the products we export, but this is not one we are proud of."
