you think the wife is gonna come out and say the normal politician's wife speech: "i am standing by my husband and support him in every possible way."
is that a catholic specific belief? cuz other denominations do not believe that (ie southern baptists, presbyterians, methodists).

I just saw the press conference. That really was out of the blue... all of a sudden he announces that he's gay, had an affair with another man, and resigned. I feel bad for him, and his family. I can't even imagine how hard this must be for them.
It really wasn't a secret that McGreevey was gay. In 2002, he injured his leg while vacationing at the beach with his male lover (no idea what they were doing!). He then proceeded to quickly fly his wife in, using taxpayer dollars, to make it look like it was a family vacation. He also helped his male lover buy a home near the Governor's mansion and his wife lived in a separate house. He also got his political staff to get his male lover a visa, circumventing the whole process. How can this be done pretty soon after September 11?This whole thing makes me sick. There needs to be much more outrage.
I could not stand watching the news shows last night and all of the gay activists were saying how this was a show of strength, soul-searching, etc..... The REASON why he admitted all of this yesterday was DAMAGE CONTROL. He appointed his Israeli lover to a government post, the head of Homeland Security for NJ, which pays $110,000 a year. He then tried to circumvent the background check process. You don't appoint someone to be the head of security for the state and then not have a background check. This is unbelieveable. How the hell can this happen?The only reason McGreevey had the press conference yesterday is because all of this was going to come out, the sexual harassment suit was filed in NJ court yesterday. There have been all sorts of corruption charges against this guy since he took office. By the way, McGreevey was married twice in his life and has had a daughter with each marriage. The first wife moved to British Columbia to get as far away from the fraud as possible. He gave her full custody of the child and all sorts of money not to say a word and ruin his political career. Then, knowing that he is gay, he marries another woman, parades her out during this press conference. Next, McGreevey screws the citizens of New Jersey by not allowing them to select their new Governor. He waits until Nov. 15 so that there does not have to be a special election. I don't care what your politics are, this is also wrong. Let the citizens choose their new Governor. The New Jersey Democratic machine is despicable, no matter how you slice it. Finally, did you see his parents at the conference. His mom had a look on her face that said "I can't believe my son is such a scumbag" and his father had a look that said "I want to beat my son's ass." In conclusion, McGreevey is a liar and a fraud, not a hero. If I hear one more person praise him I'm going to flip out.
