How sex governs the US governors

About a week after New York governor Eliot Spitzer resigned over a sex scandal, the story refuses to go away. The spinoffs have led us back to Clinton (was Hillary afraid a comment would remind American voters of her decision to stick with Clinton to keep her ambition burning?). Now we are back to the McGreeveys of neighboring New Jersey. Jim McGreevey, the former NJ governor, was forced to resign in November 2004 after admitting an extramarital affair with a male employee. He is the first and, so far, the only openly gay American state governor, according to a Wikipedia entry on his profile. According to the male aide, the trysts were (hold your breath) threesomes with McGreevey's wife!

I hope you did not faint. Have a moral day.
