Gay Governor?

What do you think of Gov. McGreevy (NJ) resigning?

In this Associated Press Article, McGreevy says, “it makes little difference that as governor I am gay,” but added that staying in office and keeping the affair and his sexual orientation secret will leave the governor's office “vulnerable to rumors, false allegations and threats of disclosure.”

I'd like to think that this would be untrue, but my feeling is that this would be seen as an opportunity to constantly attack him because of his sexuality, rather than focusing on the issues that he would be working on in his state.  Sad really.
