You only admire because hes democrat. If he was a republican it would never end about how bad he is. This is a stupid double standard.

Better yet, if Bush said he was gay with Dick, then they BOTH resign!

Point is that I believe he has done the right thing by resigning.

Rick. Sometimes, and it is rather rare; both sides of the spectrum agree on A2K

The guy needed to resign because he apparently put his lover on the payroll. If he had put a female lover on the payroll, the result would have been the same.

Sounds like J. Edgar Hoover all over again -- putting one's current lover on a government payroll is poor judgement.

Mr. Green



Since yesterday I learned that he appointed his boyfriend the Director of Homeland Security for New Jersey. That pisses me off. Terrorism and the appointment of people in important positions that can directly affect the public safety are not to be taken lightly or given to one's lover. Yeah, McGreevey should have resigned because of that appointment, NOT because he was gay. The 9/11 connection changes everything in my mind. The Governor was more interested in giving his butt buddy an important job than in the safety of the people of New Jersey.

Kind of drops the notion that gay men have more intelligent taste and judgement into a bucket. Why anyone with any sense didn't know where this would lead is lacking in social intelligence at least.

You just described 90 precent of the people in public office.

That's such an ugly term.

Can't you think of something other than "New Jersey?"

True enough. Almost as bad as a President getting emeshed in a long-term relationship with an employee. Both involve violations of government ethics codes, and various public laws. Adding perjury makes it all the more poignent. The implied bad judgement betrays the public trust.

A-HA!

Guv's boyfriend says it was sexual harrassment. He says the guv tried to pay him off, and when it didn't work-- stated boyfriend was blackmailing him....

This is going to get dirty.
