McGreevey Resigns! 
Governor Jim McGreevey just announced his resignation, effective Nov. 15, 2004.

His stated reason: He is gay and has been having an extramarital affair with a man.

"I am a gay American," McGreevey said.

According to CBS News, Gov. McGreevey is about to be named in a sexual harrassment lawsuit by a former male aide.

Another factor in his decision is probably the recent "Machiavelli" fundraising scandals that Chris Christie has been trying to pin on him, and the consequent plummetting of his poll numbers.

This will make Maplewood's State Senator (and Senate President) Dick Codey the next governor. Codey would also retain his Senate Presidency. It's said that the New Jersey Governorship is among the most powerful non-federal elective positions. Codey will have a double-whammy, since he'll also retain his Senate post.
