…Wait, that wasn’t the *Maryland* #Obamacare exchange director that was off at a tropical beach?

Maryland, Minnesota, both start with M:

MNsure director April Todd-Malmlov took a two-week vacation to Costa Rica around Thanksgiving. Gov. Mark Dayton defended her right to take a pre-scheduled trip, but critics of the fledgling health insurance exchange pounced.

The conservative group Watchdog.org put out a press release Thursday, condemning her absence while “thousands of frustrated Minnesotans were notified about glitches and errors in their applications on the state insurance exchange.”

Then again, so does “massively malignant meltdown.”

Via Jim Geraghty, who is also apparently getting forwarded all the good state exchange disasters. January 2014 is going to be a heck of a month.
