My preliminary knowledge of the Governor James E. McGreevey situation leads me to think that he has behaved honorably. Obviously the actions that led to the resignation weren't good, but he appears to be doing the best he can to make things right, and that's what honor is about (once a wrong as been committed).
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - In a stunning declaration, 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.Naturally the article focuses on his homosexuality rather than his affair and doesn't mention his party affiliation.
"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."
Looks like I was a bit too optimistic, and that this resignation was basically timed to pre-empt a lawsuit and position McGreevey to affect the election in November.
