New Jersey Governor James McGreevey admitted he was gay, and then resigned from office at a press conference yesterday.

“My truth is that I am a gay American,” McGreevey told reporters.

“Since my early days in school to the present day, I acknowledged certain feelings that set myself apart from other [and] I forced what I thought was an acceptable reality upon myself. At some point in every person’s life, one has to look into the mirror of one’s soul … and decide the truth for what it is.”
