Jersey City, NJ: Disgraced Governor May Return: Jim McGreevey (D), who was elected New Jersey’s Governor in 2001, but resigned because of a hiring scandal and gay love affair before the end of his first term, is contemplating making a political comeback. Apparently, a draft committee is being organized to encourage him to file for the Jersey City Mayor’s post when it comes up for election next year.
In addition to being elected Governor, Mr. McGreevey served as Mayor of the Woodbridge Township and spent six years in the New Jersey legislature. He has not run for any office since departing politics in 2004.
