Here's the two Dumbos Cipel and McGay at their "prom" ----the lovebirds met two weeks after then-Woodbridge Mayor McGreevey proposed marriage to his now ex-wife----and brought Cipel to the US, housed closeby McGreevey's mayoral office. Israeli national Cipel couldn't get US security clearance b/c he was a citizen of a foreign country. Not satisfied with undermining national security, Cipel then figured he'd extort the taxpayers, and threatened a sexual harrassment lawsuit against the governor which precipitated McGay's resignation.

When he resigned amidst a fanfare of publicity, McGreevey claimed he'd "just found out" he was gay (poster laughs uproariously).

McGreevey appointed Cipel to direct the state's Homeland Security at a salary of $110,00 plus a Mercedes SUV, and a publicly-funded expense account.

Golan Cipel eventually took a powder, absconding to Israel before the the feds could get ahold of him.

Cipel was getting ready to scam New Jersey taxpayers, planning to file a sexual harrassment suit against the governor, which precipitated McGay's resignation from office.

McGreevey backtracked like crazy placing Cipel in several consecutive jobs with his political cronies----and as one last kissoff before he absconded, Cipel was working as a $7500 per month "consultant" (yup--$7500 per month) with a company that received hundreds of millions of dollars in construction contracts from the McGreevey admin.

McGay's sexual romp with Cipel cost the taxpayers in that state a bundle.

Unless he repents, the Episcopal Church is more than welcome to McGreevey.

We have a new term: "going Episcopalian".

Former Gov. James E. McGreevey, who struggled to square his Catholic faith with his political positions even before he declared himself a "gay American" last year, has been regularly attending services in the Episcopal church.

SHOCKING! - sarc

They might make him a bishop.

Just one more reason OUR diocese no longer calls itself "Episcopal".

One of the best coverups in the history of East Coast politics was when McGreevey broke his leg during rough sex with his boytoy on a private beach in South Jersey, and then successfully passed it off with a cooperative press as a trip-and-fall while on a romantic twilight walk with his wife.

If anyone wants proof that McGreevey's famous press conference was a ridiculous political ploy - look at McGreevey's dad's face in the footage.

His dad was a marine drill instructor and is supposedly an actual Catholic.

He's "standing by his son" in the footage, but the look on his face is that of a tough guy being repeatedly kicked in the stomach by his loanshark's collectors. He knew it was inevitable and he's gritting his teeth and waiting for it to end.

Days later, a top Vatican official said politicians who don't publicly oppose abortion should be denied Communion. In response, McGreevey said he would no longer take Communion in public, but the issue clearly frustrated him.

Wasn't this top Vatican official Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI?

It was shortly after the Communion flap that local Episcopal officials first reached out to McGreevey, said the Rev. Elizabeth Kaeton of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Chatham.

"After that whole fiasco with the Roman Catholic Church, when they said they wouldn't give him Communion because of his position on abortion, some of us -- I was one of them -- spoke to him privately and said, 'Have you thought about the Episcopal church?'" said Kaeton, who was among those attending last night's fundraiser. "That kind of evangelism works."

The Episcopal Church can have as much of that kind of evangelism as they want...

This is certainly good news for the Roman Catholics!

I actually know a guy who was raised Catholic who attends St. Paul's in Chatham under duress because his hyperliberal wife will only attend that particular church.

That's one holey catholic and apostate church allright. Yet another reason I'm glad I'm out. Also, I'm finding they're starting to steal the word "integrity". Whenever I hear it, especially used with reference to an organization, I think of these gay piskos eating pudding (to paraphrase Cartman).

I think this was the pronouncement that then Cardinal Ratzinger made that was basically suppressed by the USCCB and Cardinal McCarrick.

I remember hearing sordid details about that incident long before McGreevey supposedly “revealed” his tendencies.

My friend, who is a cop, told me about the press waiting patiently on the sidelines while the state troopers engaged in a mad scramble to get his wife on the scene.

If I recall correctly, Cipel wasn’t even the date that night. It was one of McGreevey’s dozens of other roughboys.

I always thought that that knee capping on the beach came at the hands of some mobsters.

I learned about all this from Father Corapi. If you publicly take a position against what the Church teaches or believes as a body, or even if you take it privately, it's called apostasy, and you are an apostate. If you are an apostate, it is not necessary for the church to excommunicate you. You have ipso facto done it to yourself. Therefore it is called ipso facto excommunication, meaning "by that very fact" excommunicated.

I know one of the state troopers on the scene very well (his wife was my wife's maid of honor, we have dinner with them all the time).

He was called to the scene, and the guys he knows who were on McGreevey's personal detail told him that McGreevey would pick up street hustlers in AC and bring them to apartments and private beaches down in Cape May county for assignations.

They brought his wife in by helicopter for that particular incident.

I was gonna say... how does one break a leg during sex, or I should say during penile to anal contact for sexual stimulation, because it isn't sex. Never heard of that before.
