    i think we are the first state w/ a gaylord governor. he cheated on his wife with a man. many people in nj already had an inkling he was on the pink team. he has been caught in a park in the town he was mayor of by police on two occassions making out with a man in a car.

    N.J. Gov. McGreevey Says He's Homosexual, Will Resign


    NEW YORK -- In a stunning announcement, Gov. James E. McGreevey announced his resignation Thursday and acknowledged that he had an extramarital affair with another man. "My truth is that I am a gay American," he said.

    N.J. Gov. McGreevey To Resign

    "Shamefully, I engaged in adult consensual affairs with another man, which violates my bonds of matrimony," the married father of two said. "It was wrong, it was foolish, it was inexecusable."

    The Democrat said his resignation would be effective Nov. 15.

    McGreevey said he would step down because his secret -- both his sexuality and his affair -- leaves the governor's office vulnerable.

    McGreevey, the state's 51st governor, took office 2 1/2 years ago, and despite inheriting a $5 billion budget deficit, he steadfastly refused to boost income taxes for most New Jerseyans, instead raising taxes on millionaires, casinos and cigarettes.

    But he has been dogged by several scandals involving fund-raising.

    McGreevey, a Democrat, rose from suburban mayor to state chief executive by his tenacious pursuit of party politics, maintaining a power base days after he narrowly lost to Republican Christie Whitman in 1997.

    McGreevey never truly stopped that campaign until he won in November 2001, beating Republican Bret Schundler by 15 percentage points.

    Born in Jersey City, McGreevey graduated from Columbia University in 1978. He earned a law degree from Georgetown University in 1981 and a master's degree in education from Harvard University a year later.

    After briefly serving as a county prosecutor, McGreevey became a lobbyist for a pharmaceutical company, then a state government official. While in the Legislature, McGreevey voted for Gov. Jim Florio's $2.8 billion tax hike that prompted a voter rebellion against Democrats.

    So not only is he homosexual, but he is a big giant slut to boot. Sounds like a right wing conspiracy to me.

    What an asshole. I'm cool with him being gay, but you don't just go cheating on your wife when you've got 2 kids. Also, cruising for anonymous sex? That shit's just irresponsible.

    Also, why in the fuck would he resign because he's a gay guy? What the fuck is that? As a gay man myself, I've got no respect for this guy right now.

    He didn't resign because he was gay. He resigned because he committed adultery, got caught, and the public found out about it. It only made sense for him to resign out of respect to the state governing position. Of course, him having sex with another man added to the controversy, there's no denying that.

    *i dont think it says he's resigning because he's gay.
    he says he resigning "McGreevey said he would step down because his secret -- both his sexuality and his affair -- leaves the governor's office vulnerable."


    damn!

    The man involved in the affair with McGreevey, a former government employee, demanded "an exorbitant sum of money to make it go away," a high-ranking administration official told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity.


    Several sources tell NewsChannel 4 that the man involved is McGreevey's former security adviser, Golan Cipel (pictured right). He was expected to file a lawsuit as early as Friday.
