    Trenton, N.J. (AP) -- Former Gov. James E. McGreevey will not have to pay alimony to his ex-wife, a judge ruled Friday in granting the couple a divorce after a tumultuous eight-year marriage that crumbled publicly when McGreevey acknowledged he was a "gay American." A superior court judge ruled Friday that McGreevey, the nation's first openly gay governor, must pay $250 a week, or $1,075 a month, in child support for his 6-year-old daughter with Dina Matos. Matos had asked for $2,500 a month alimony for four years and $1,750 a month in child support. The couple share custody of...

    A former aide to James E. McGreevey said today that he had three-way sexual trysts with the former governor and his wife before he took office, challenging Dina Matos McGreevey's assertion that she was naive about her husband's sexual exploits.

    Democrat presidential hopeful Barack Obama cast himself as the leader the US needed to stand up to and engage renegade nations such as North Korea. ’We need a president who’ll have the strength and courage to go toe-to-toe with the leaders of rogue nations, because that’s what it takes to protect our security,“ the Illinois senator told Democrats at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa. “That’s what I’ll do as your next commander in chief.” Obama and rival Hillary Clinton have had a running argument since clashing in last week’s debate over how far the US should be willing to...

    Former Gov. James E. McGreevey has started the process to become a priest in his newly adopted Episcopal faith and hopes to begin a three-year seminary program in the fall. McGreevey, who often described himself as a devout Catholic while in public office, was officially received into the Episcopal religion on Sunday, at St. Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan, and is now part of the church's "discernment" phase that usually precedes any seminary work, said the Rev. Kevin Bean, vicar at St. Bartholomew.

    Hillary, McCain Campaign in New Jersey The candidates for New Jersey governor called in two of the nation's most prominent senators Friday to help rally support as polls showed the race tight with less than three weeks to go. Democratic nominee Jon Corzine appeared alongside New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Republican contender Doug Forrester brought in Arizona Sen. John McCain. Clinton addressed a crowd of 1,500 women, telling them Corzine has "the best combination for public service: He has a great mind, big heart." Clinton said she got to know Corzine when both were new to the Senate in...

    Barack Obama's rousing oration at the August 2004 Democratic convention established America's favorite son of a goatherd as the shining hope of his desperate party. After humiliating the hapless Alan Keyes in November, he took his seat in Washington as the junior Senator from Illinois and set himself immediately to the thankless service of the workingman. On June 4, Obama appeared in Galesburg to deliver a commencement address at Knox College that has liberal scribes writing love poems and doodling hearts inscribed "Obama 2008." In a valentine that appeared on the New Republic website, David Kusnet says that "All Obama...

    Five months after Gov. James McGreevey left office in disgrace, a new public opinion poll shows that 49 percent of New Jerseyans would consider voting for him in a future election. ......Zogby International was commissioned by the gay rights advocacy group Garden State Equality to measure public support for gay marriage (which remains at 55 percent statewide). The group piggy-backed the McGreevey question onto the poll, largely in an effort to test electoral support for gay and lesbian candidates. The poll asked voters what their opinion would be if McGreevey ran for another office, like Congress or the Legislature. 6...

    A wild U.S. Senate debate spilled into living rooms Thursday night as Republican Alan Keyes and Democrat Barack Obama rocked each other with blistering attacks on religious faith, crime, gun control, abortion and sex education.In a bid to jolt his long-shot candidacy, Keyes excoriated Obama for coddling gang members, proposing kindergartners learn about sex and using his faith disingenuously to get votes.The choice of topics meant Obama, who holds a 40-percentage-point lead in polls, often found himself on the defensive during the hour-long debate on WLS-TV, Channel 7. But Obama did rip Keyes for being a too-preachy name-caller who opposes...

    RENTON, N.J. - The wife of resigning Gov. James E. McGreevey is buying a home where she apparently will live without her husband. Dina Matos McGreevey, 37, executive director of the Columbus Hospital Foundation in Newark, has not spoken publicly about her husband's recent announcement that he is gay and had an extramarital affair with another man. She took ownership of the modest, ranch-style house in Springfield in the last few days, Maureen Leddy, the real estate agent who handled the sale, told The New York Times for Wednesday's editions. She declined to disclose the sale price. Similar homes in...

    Votes in Senate defy easy labels Barack Obama's critics often hammer the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate as being too far to the political left for most Illinois voters, using as evidence what they say is a very liberal voting record over the eight years he has represented the Hyde Park neighborhood in the Illinois Senate. A review of Obama's legislative record shows that the liberal label is not misplaced. He has fought for gun control, worked to expand government assistance to the poor, led efforts to reform the death penalty system, proposed universal health care and opposed legislation...

    NAPERVILLE, Ill. - In a U.S. Senate race that looks increasingly like a grand philosophical debate about religion and government, Democrat Barack Obama stood before a packed church Tuesday and argued the case for keeping the two separate. As Exhibit A, he held up his Republican opponent: "It's not clear to me that I want Alan Keyes telling me what it means to be a Christian," Obama said. Obama, currently a state senator representing a Chicago district, and Keyes, a conservative activist recruited from Maryland by the Illinois GOP, are vying for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen....
  • Obama Says Religion, Tradition Shape Opposition To Gay Marriage

    September 24, 2004 — Democratic U-S Senate candidate Barack Obama says he's opposed to gay marriage because of tradition and his Christian beliefs. But Obama says he supports civil unions for gays and lesbians and would oppose a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Obama made his comments today during a taping of W-B-B-M Radio's "At Issue" program. His Republican opponent, Alan Keyes, has said repeatedly that Obama supports gay marriage. But Obama says he personally believes marriage should be between a man and a woman. The Democratic candidate also says the issue of gay marriage should be left to the...

    HundredPercenter has learned from unimpeachable sources that NYC democrat Councilman Vincent Gentile is going to resign, due to sexual harassment allegations from a teenage male intern. Gentile, who is a freshman councilman from Brooklyn, NY, is rumored to announce his resignation within days. The backround of the accuser is unknown, however, sources tell us that his father is a NYC detective. This can get ugly.
  • McGreevy Is Scum

    OK, I just heard McGreevy's announcment that his decision to resign was "a process of transformation and prayer." The poor victim of a repressive society. Apart from the political corruption, it is imperative to remember that he is a callous sociopath. Would the same crowd defending him defend his wife if she had a lesbian affair and he were a normal guy? A lot wouldn't and nobody should. Assuming he loved her there would be heartbreak and humiliation involved, much like I think what is happening with Mrs. McGreevy. Of course, a lesbian affair would not have endangered McGreevey's life...

    McGreevey Has Yet To Submit Resignation Letter Tue Aug 24 2004 9:31:09 ET New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey has yet to submit an official letter of resignation, officials said Monday. A spokesman for the Department of State confirmed that McGreevey, 12 days after his historic announcement, had not given them the required letter to abandon the governor's office before the end of his four-year term. The EASTON EXPRESS TIMES report: "What he announced was his intention," Micah Rasmussen, a McGreevey spokesman, said of the timing of McGreevey's letter. 'It will be done at the appropriate time." Without the letter, under...

McGreevey (search ) of sexual harassment. Dr. Michael David Miller was repeatedly urged by a public defender and Judge Donald Volkert to refrain from speaking during his 20-minute arraignment. He was arrested late Thursday on charges including pretending to be a law enforcement officer. Despite their efforts, Miller made remarks including, "I have no law enforcement responsibility in this country whatsoever." Miller, 51, pleaded not guilty to...

    MY HANKIES are drenched, my weeping couch a sodden raft. The deluge that Hurricane Charley dumped across Florida was a puddle compared with the titanic swells clogging America’s tear ducts in the wake of New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey’s monumentally brave confession: “I am a gay American.” Great God above, can there be a tomorrow? To hear and read reaction to McGreevey’s announcement that he’ll resign (one of these days), you’d think he’d done something heroic, a self-made martyr deserving of admiration rather than a corrupt individual forced to face the music. So he’s gay. Who cares? The gist of...
