Today Governor McGreevy of New Jersey resigned from office because he was gay. There was of course, more to it, but the media is focusing on his homosexuality. McGreevy was a husband and father, he had an affair with a man. Tomorrow there will be a lawsuit against him for sexual misconduct.
This is of course, unfortunate.
McGreevey, said that "it makes little difference that as governor I am gay," but added that staying in office and keeping the affair and his sexual orientation secret will leave the governor's office "vulnerable to rumors, false allegations and threats of disclosure."
