      In the past year McGreevey was photographed in the Jewish press as an
      honorary Jew. He was instrumental in the suppression and vilification
      of the Conference for Palestine at Rutgers University. He is also
      rumored to have been excommunicated from the Catholic Church. One
      wonders why New Jersey is still trying to get an Israeli as head of
      Homeland Security. An Israeli security company was in charge of every
      airport that let the alleged 9/11 hijackers through. McGreevey was
      also instrumental in getting the State of NJ to invest all its
      retirement plans (401K) in risky Israeli stocks and bonds.

      N.J. governor, saying he's gay, resigns office
      McGreevey's decision comes ahead of expected sex-harassment lawsuit

      TRENTON, N.J. - New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey announced his
      resignation Thursday afternoon, saying he had had an extramarital
      affair with another man that could leave the state government
      vulnerable to undue outside influences.


      "My truth is that I am a gay American," McGreevey, a Democratic
      former prosecutor who has seen several political aides and fund-
      raisers accused of corruption, said at a televised news conference.

      "Shamefully, I engaged in adult consensual affairs with another man,
      which violates my bonds of matrimony," said McGreevey, 47, the
      married father of two. "It was wrong. It was foolish. It was

      McGreevey said his secret — both his sexuality and his affair — left
      the governor's office vulnerable. "I am removing these threats by
      telling you about my sexuality," he said.

      Specter of lawsuit
      WABC-TV of New York reported that McGreevey was expecting a lawsuit
      by a former aide accusing him of sexual harassment. The station
      identified the former aide as Golan Cipel, who resigned as
      McGreevey's security adviser in 2002 after months of questioning
      about his credentials and job qualifications.

      Aug. 12: "My truth is that I am a gay American," New Jersey Gov.
      James E. McGreevey said. Watch his entire statement.

      A former Israeli sailor and a published poet, Cipel, 33, was
      criticized because he did not have a security clearance or law
      enforcement background. He had worked in television news and public

      The governor, who was married once before, said he had long struggled
      with the thoughts of his sexuality.

      "Because of my resolve and also thinking I was doing the right thing,
      I also forced what I thought was an acceptable reality onto myself,"
      he said.

      Steven Fisher, a spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign, which
      advocates for gay and lesbian causes, told MSNBC-TV: "Coming out is a
      deeply personal journey, and Governor McGreevey today showed enormous

      Earlier this year, McGreevey signed a domestic partners law granting
      gay and lesbian couples many of the same rights as married couples.
      But he explicitly opposed same-sex marriages throughout the 2002
      campaign and his administration.

      McGreevey called on judges in 2002 to reject petitions seeking to
      legalize same-sex marriages, saying they would have a "detrimental
      impact ... in the state of New Jersey." He stepped into the national
      controversy over same-sex marriages last March when he directed the
      state attorney general to order local officials not to issue marriage
      licenses to same-sex couples.

      Veteran New Jersey politician
      The resignation is effective Nov. 15, McGreevey said. State Senate
      President Richard Codey will serve the rest of his term, which ends
      at the end of next year.

      "My heart goes out to Jim McGreevey and his family during this
      difficult personal time," Codey said. "Jim McGreevey is a good person
      and good friend, and today's events sadden me."

      McGreevey, who appeared at the news conference with his wife and
      parents, will spend the weekend with his family, said his spokesman,
      Micah Rasmussen.

      Rasmussen declined to answer any questions about the future of
      McGreevey's marriage. McGreevey himself refused to answer questions
      at the news conference.

      McGreevey, the state's 51st governor, took office 2½ 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.

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

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

      McGreevey, who was born in Jersey City, 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 and then a state government
      official. While in the Legislature, he voted for Gov. Jim Florio's
      $2.8 billion tax hike, which prompted a voter rebellion against
