Such an upstanding guy

So the governor of New Jersey, McGreevey (or however you spell it) has resigned and admitted that he's gay.

The cynic in me is screaming that this 'gay' thing is an attempt to deflect attention from the fact that he's being hammered from all sides by scandals and possible investigations.

He's a politician, and a pretty good one since you don't get to be governor without some skills. That doesn't change the fact that he's also (allegedly) a crooked scumbag. Cheat on your wife? Shameful, but personal business. Gay? So what, but having a couple kids with your wife makes me think the term you're searching for is "bisexual".

Then again, I think "gay" might be exactly the term you intended, playing for sympathy and simultaneously using it as a smokescreen.
