New Jersey's Christie takes ice bucket challenge

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is proving again he doesn't mind a little humiliation.

The Republican on Tuesday posted on his Facebook page a video showing two of his kids dumping a bucket of ice water on his head.

The video is part of the Ice Bucket Challenge, launched by the ALS Foundation to raise money for fighting ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Christie nominates three other people to complete the challenge within 24 hours or donate $100: Democratic New Jersey U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and late-night NBC host Jimmy Fallon. (Disclosure: Comcast is the owner of NBCUniversal, the parent company of NBC, CNBC, and CNBC.com.)

Christie has been trying to move past a scandal at home by drawing laughs, including an appearance on Fallon's show.

The ALS Foundation reports raising $4 million since July 29 thanks to the ice bucket challenge.
