SEXUAL POLITICS

"I am a gay American," New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey said, dropping a political bombshell in August. With wife Dina Matos by his side, the Democrat resigned his elected position and admitted to an adulterous affair with a man, aide Golan Cipel, who had reportedly threatened to sue the governor for sexual harassment. Since leaving office Nov. 15, McGreevey has been living alone in a two-bedroom apartment and begun work at a private law firm.
