Jim McGreevey's Tell-All: I Cruised Reststops For Sex

And bookstores, too.

Bookstores?

No wonder the wrestling section is always packed to capacity.

Former Gov. James E. McGreevey once resorted to anonymous homosexual trysts at highway rest stops, according to recently released excerpts from his memoir being released later this year.

McGreevey - who proclaimed himself "a gay American" in 2004 while announcing his impending resignation as governor - describes his long struggle with his homosexuality in the book "The Confession."

According to the excerpts published Sunday in The Star-Ledger of Newark, McGreevey engaged in the secret encounters because he feared having a relationship with a man would ruin his chances of success as a politician.

"So, instead, I settled for the detached anonymity of bookstores and rest stops - a compromise, but one that was wholly unfulfilling and morally unsatisfactory," McGreevey wrote.

The excerpts do not mention whether the activities extended into his time as governor.

...

"A lot will resonate with readers," he said.

Well, it's resonating with me-- in my pants.

This is odd:

The excerpts do not detail his two marriages, or even the scandal, which became public knowledge during an August 2004 televised news conference in which McGreevey acknowledged a gay affair and said he would resign in coming months.

The excerpts also do not mention the former aide whom sources close to McGreevey have identified as the man he had an extramarital affair with.

He tells about anonymous sex in reststops but won't discuss the affair we all know damn well he had?

He also says he became, as cover, as "avid a womanizer" as anyone else.

All very sad.

Thanks to Craig.
