    Former Gov. James McGreevey, who resigned from office after revealing that he was gay and had an affair with a male staffer, is seeking custody of his 5-year-old daughter and child support from his estranged wife. The revised divorce lawsuit by McGreevey, who resigned in November 2004, does not mention the "matrimonial settlement agreement" that McGreevey originally said had resolved all custody and support issues concerning his daughter, Jacqueline. McGreevey's wife, Dina Matos, has 35 days to respond to the revised filing.

    Report: State police shuttled McGreevey to Cipel rendezvous August 25, 2004, 3:45 PM EDT NEWARK, N.J. -- Gov. James E. McGreevey used state troopers assigned to protect him to escort him to the apartment of the aide with whom he is believed to have carried on an gay extramarital affair, according to a published report. The Star-Ledger of Newark, citing two sources with knowledge of the visits, reported for Wednesday that drivers from the state police's Executive Protection Unit began shuttling McGreevey to Golan Cipel's apartment soon after McGreevey was elected governor in November 2001. Accounts of the visits were...

    N.J. Voters in a PicklePublished: August 18, 2004 ov. James McGreevey's exit strategy has put New Jersey voters, and democracy itself, in a terrible bind. Under the timetable announced last week during his bombshell news conference, Mr. McGreevey will resign his office on Nov. 15 and hand the reins of government to Richard Codey, the president of the State Senate. Executive power will thus reside for three months with a lame-duck governor crippled by scandal and then, for the next 14 months, with an interim governor who has no mandate from the voters. The alternative is for the Republicans and...

McGreevey's immediate resignation grew on Monday as Democratic leaders and representatives of labor, environmental and other groups prepared to talk to Senator Jon S. Corzine this week to discuss his possible candidacy in a special election this fall.

    The Governor's SecretPublished: August 13, 2004 ooner or later, it was bound to happen: a major elected official's calling a press conference to tell constituents that he or she is gay. Yesterday, New Jersey's governor, James McGreevey, described his coming to grips with his sexual orientation with uncommon grace and dignity, offering an extraordinary glimpse into the private torment that can accompany a public life lived in the closet. "My truth is that I am a gay American,'' he said. If that had been the beginning and the end of the story, we would be celebrating Mr. McGreevey's candor, not...

    August 4, 2004 -- New Jersey real-estate mogul Charles Kushner wants to cop a plea on charges he hired a high-priced call girl to have a motel tryst with a witness against him, and videotaped the steamy session, a court document reveals. Kushner, a top fund-raiser for New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, waived his right to a speedy trial because of ongoing talks between federal prosecutors and the defense team, the document says. "Plea negotiations are currently in progress and both the U.S. and defendant desire additional time to enter the plea in court, which would thereby render trial of...

    Nervous New Jersey Democrats may dump scandal-scarred Gov. Jim McGreevey in favor of Sen. Jon Corzine in next year's gubernatorial election, sources said yesterday. McGreevey, buffeted by widening allegations involving two of his biggest fund-raisers — one of whom was charged this week with hiring prostitutes to blackmail potential federal witnesses — faces growing restlessness among fellow Democrats fearful a serious Republican challenger will soon emerge. "If a consensus emerges among the Democrats to dump McGreevey, Corzine just might do it," a longtime Democratic operative told The Post. A Democrat close to Corzine told The Philadelphia Inquirer, "If the circumstances...

    CATHOLIC POLITICIANS AND ABORTION New Jersey Governor James McGreevey announced yesterday that he would no longer receive Holy Communion at Mass. McGreevey’s decision follows comments made by Archbishop John Myers of Newark that Catholic elected officials who support abortion rights should not present themselves for Communion. In addition, Bishop John Smith of Trenton has explicitly criticized McGreevey for his record on abortion, and Bishop Joseph Galante of Camden has said he would not give the governor Communion because McGreevey did not receive an annulment of his first marriage before remarrying. Here’s how Catholic League president William Donohue sees it: “The...

    <p>Last year, big businesses were targeted with the largest tax increase since Jim Florio was Governor. This year, smaller businesses are being targeted to help plug a huge budget gap.</p> <p>Millennium Radio has obtained a copy of a Democratic sponsored Senate bill that seeks to raise fees on dog kennels, pet shops, micro breweries, and small wineries. The real estate industry is hit particularly hard, with fees doubled in 21-categories. Residential real estate analyst Ellen Souter says the fees will hurt realty companies across New Jersey. "It sickens me that no-one sat down to study this issue, and simply decided this is how were going to do it (balance the budget)," Souter said.</p>

    Under a barrage of criticism from Republicans and questions from reporters, Gov. James E. McGreevey apologized today for charging taxpayers $70,000 for a weeklong trip to Ireland combining business and pleasure last summer. Mr. McGreevey said he would ask the state Democratic Party to repay almost all of the expenses. The Star-Ledger of Newark reported today that Mr. McGreevey spent slightly more than $105,000 to fly his wife, several staff members and three state troopers acting as security guards to his ancestral homeland for a week in July. The costs paid by the state included $16,000 in cellphone charges and...
