Miss New Jersey Officials Likely to Let Amy Polumbo Keep Throne in Photo Flap

Miss New Jersey officials said they're unfazed by blackmail photos of embattled beauty queen Amy Polumbo and will likely let her continue to represent the Garden State.

Three of the pageant's five board members told The Post Tuesday that they've examined secretly mailed pictures of Polumbo (taken from Facebook.com and sent by a group calling itself "The Committee to Save Miss America") and don't believe they're offensive.

As long as Polumbo, 22, had nothing to do with the vulgar captions and is not in violation of her contract, the three said, they're on her side.

"They weren't bad at all, but the captions on the pictures were hurtful," said board secretary Mark Soifer.

The trustees are set to meet Thursday in Ocean City and decide Polumbo's fate.
