Twice Married, Now Homosexual: McGreevey’s Book Set To Launch with Oprah Interview

AFT’s correction to the revisionist history below: James McGreevey was not elected governor of New Jersey as an openly homosexual man; he was elected as a (twice) married man with two children.

Dropping a political bombshell, New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey announced his resignation Thursday after revealing that he is gay and that he had an adulterous affair with a man.

The day after talking with Oprah, the 49-year-old McGreevey is scheduled to be on the Today Show, The View and Hannity & Colmes on Fox News.

An appearance on The David Letterman Show is also planned.

…None of the interviews or appearances are expected to make a bigger splash than the first one: an hour-long sit-down with one of the most powerful women in America, whose nationally televised show is watched by millions.

McGreevey’s partner, Australian financial adviser Mark O’Donnell, will also be on the show…
