There was a post here about my thoughts on the NJ Fey Governator, but I've heard conflicting reports and I don't want to jump the gun on what I've heard. I live in Wisconsin, so chances are, the stories are wrong.
He didn't resign because he was gay. He made some bad choices (possible sexual harassment, putting his lover on the payroll) which would have been bad even if he had been doinking his secretary or babysitter.
That being said, it takes a lot of courage to come out, and I hope he's doing okay. It's hard enough coming out of the closet, let alone on CNN, ABC, FOX, et all.
