No. It's a common warning sign for corrosive materials.

OK, getting to be a little too much information here!

So did he resign for being gay or for cheating on his wife? I think the greater sin is cheating on your wife, are you watching and learning Mr. Clinton??

The details are not public yet, but apparently he is resigning because of the affair. The speculation is that there is a sexual harrasment scandal brewing.

The new rumor is that Mc Greevey is having an affair with a somebody namned Cipil. Mc Greevey wanted Cipil to run DHS in new jersey but he didnt get the job. The state then continued to pay Cipil 110k a year despite his being fired and that he either was hired by Mcgreevey as blackmail to prevent a scandal about their affair or some other reason. Big corruption scandal with homosexuality thrown in for flavor.

What pisses me off is that Mc Greevey is not actually resigning til nov 15 and is gonna let Trenton (the state) decide who runs the state. If he left now we the voters have plenty of time to hold an election and choose who we wanted to govern the state. Dirty pool on Mcgreevey and this may affect the upcoming presidential becuase NJ has been a strong dem state but the disgust over this issue may sway voters to vote Republican.

NewsFlash Home | More McGreevey Resigns

N.J. governor announces resignation; says he had affair with man
8/12/2004, 8:57 p.m. ET
By JOHN P. McALPIN
The Associated Press

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) In a stunning declaration, Gov. James E. McGreevey announced his resignation Thursday and acknowledged that he had an affair with another man. "My truth is that I am a gay American," he said with his wife by his side at a nationally televised news conference.

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

McGreevey, a Democrat, said his resignation would be effective Nov. 15.

McGreevey, 47, refused to answer questions at the Statehouse news conference. He said "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."

"Given the circumstances surrounding the affair and its likely impact upon my family and my ability to govern, I have decided the right course of action is to resign," he said without elaborating on what the circumstances were.

Two sources close to McGreevey, both speaking on condition of anonymity, said the man involved in the affair was Golan Cipel, an Israeli poet who worked briefly for the governor as a homeland security adviser despite having no security experience.

One source, a senior McGreevey political adviser, said Cipel threatened McGreevey several weeks ago that unless he was paid "millions of dollars," Cipel would file a lawsuit against the governor charging him with sexual harassment.

That source said a lawyer for Cipel "indicated that should the money be paid, Cipel would disappear until after the 2005 election."

The second source, a high-ranking member of the McGreevey administration, said Cipel made several threats about a lawsuit and demanded "an exorbitant sum of money to make it go away." Cabinet members and administration officials learned of that threat Wednesday night, the official said.

A phone number for Cipel could not immediately be found and he could not be reached for comment.

McGreevey spokesman Micah Rasmussen said he did not know the name of the man involved in the affair.

Senate President Richard J. Codey, a Democrat, will become acting governor and serve out the remainder of McGreevey's term, which ends in early 2006. If McGreevey were to leave office before Nov. 15, a special election would be held.

Rumors had been circulating for several years that McGreevey was gay, reaching the level of open hints on New Jersey talk radio shows.

A Roman Catholic, McGreevey had a daughter with his first wife, Kari, who lives in British Columbia with the child. He has another daughter with his current wife. Rasmussen declined to answer any questions about the future of McGreevey's marriage.

As a candidate and governor, the former altar boy proudly discussed his Catholic faith but publicly disagreed with church leaders over his support for abortion rights and same-sex partnerships. He pushed for the state's domestic partnership law, which went into effect this year.

In an announcement that at times was deeply introspective, McGreevey referred to his lifelong struggles with his sexuality.

"Throughout my life, I have grappled with my own identity, who I am," he said. "As a young child, I often felt ambivalent about myself, in fact, confused."

"At a point in every person's life, one has to look deeply into the mirror of one's soul and decide one's unique truth in the world, not as we may want to see it or hope to see it, but as it is," McGreevey added.

McGreevey 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.

Despite inheriting a $5 billion budget deficit, he steadfastly refused to boost income taxes for most New Jerseyans. He instead raised taxes on millionaires, casinos and cigarettes and provided millions of dollars worth of property tax rebates that have been showing up in residents' mailboxes in recent weeks.

But scandal marred McGreevey's tenure following questions over a series of questionable appointments, including the naming of Cipel to the newly created post of homeland security adviser. Cipel was named to the job without any background check or official announcement.

Reporters soon questioned what Cipel did to earn his $110,000 salary and in March 2001, he was reassigned to a "special counsel" job. A few months later, Cipel left his state government position.

Among those caught up in recent scandals were his first chief of staff and former counsel; a top Democratic fund-raiser and former high school classmate; and real estate developer Charles Kushner, McGreevey's biggest campaign contributor, who was charged with trying to thwart a federal campaign-finance investigation by luring a grand jury witness his own brother-in-law into a compromising position with a prostitute and sending video and photos to the man's wife.

McGreevey is the second governor to announce his resignation in recent weeks, following the resignation in June of Connecticut GOP Gov. John Rowland amid corruption investigations and threats of impeachment.

Former Democratic Gov. Brendan Byrne, who was McGreevey's political mentor, said he hoped the news would not tarnish McGreevey's political accomplishments. "It's my hope those achievements will be remembered long after today's tragic events are forgotten," said Byrne.

New Jersey residents expressed disbelief at the news. "We thought it was a joke," said Jeanne Montana, who heard the announcement on her car radio on the way to Atlantic City.

"Get out of here," Jim Nerney said when told the news by an Associated Press reporter at a rest stop. Convinced it was true, he shook his head.

Gay rights groups expressed support and compassion for McGreevey, but their reactions were tinged with sorrow because McGreevey announced his resignation just as he became the nation's first openly gay governor.

"It is a very sad to thing to watch. It is kind of stunning, sad to me that in 2004 people are still having to struggle because of homophobia in society to come to terms with who they are," said Kevin Cathcart, executive director of Lambda Legal.

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.

Heh- I saw this news and was secretly praying he was a Republican

Wasn't that long ago Christie Todd Whitman held the office Chuk- I can't say I'm rooting for you, but a Republican in Jersey is hardly unheard of. I actually went to her daughter's wedding- she seemed ok and her husband John is a dancing fool

Well we have 1 dem governor 2 dem senators and always vote majority democrat in presidential elections. Id say that qualifies NJ as a democrat state. That may change though if Mc Greevey doesnt allow us to hold a special election for his replacement. We have no Lt governor.

Two things...

One is that there is no way a poet would get that job without fucking somebody at the top.

Two is, since Cipel has the more homosexual style job, think he was the catcher?

Its gotta be the sexual harrassment/extortion issue that made him resign since Cipil was hired by them and given some money.

If not, he could make some gay laws

The asexual comment reminds me of that scene in War Games where the teacher ask Mathew Brodericks class about asexual reproduction.

I'm assuming asexual = masturbation or something to that effect.

  1. Having no evident sex or sex organs; sexless.
  2. Relating to, produced by, or involving reproduction that occurs without the union of male and female gametes, as in binary fission or budding.
  3. Lacking interest in or desire for sex.

Would it be inappropriate to say that the NJ Gov is a dick-sucking faggot that cant keep his perverted inhibitions to himself?

That would be over the line, maybe if you said

The NJ Gov is a dick-sucking faggot that cant keep his perverted inhibitions to himself and tried to use his democratic muscle(penis?) to keep his boyfriend on the payroll and make the state pay 110k a year for it?
I could agree with

Or, you could say that Chik regularly juggled the balls of the dick-sucking faggot who couldn't keep his inhibitions to himself. Chik, I think the press is on your tail. Time for you to come out of the closet and admit to cum guzzling off the gov's penis.
