James McGreevey scandal

According to Governor James E. McGreevey in his book "The Confession" (ISBN 0060898623) published in 2006, the Record was the first newspaper to break the news of a relationship between McGreevey and Golan Cipel that was to lead to McGreevey's resignation. McGreevey brought up Cipel's name six weeks into his administration in a February 14, 2002 interview with the Record editorial board at its offices saying: Jim McGreevey James Edward Jim McGreevey (born August 6, 1957) is a United States Democratic politician. ... Golan Cipel (pronounced Tzi-pel) (born circa 1969[citation needed]) is an Israeli citizen who was hired by New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey as Homeland Security Advisor on 15 January 2002 at the salary of $110,000. ...

We will not skimp on secruity. We actually brought on a security advisor from the Israel Defense Forces, probably the best in the world."

The interview prompted news investigation into Cipel's background and on February 21, the Record published a profile of Golan calling him a "sailor" and a "poet." The article said:

Democrats close to the administration say McGreevey and Cipel have struck up a close friendship and frequently travel together.

The article prompted McGreevey's own mother to ask him if he was gay and stirred various media organizations to send reporters to Israel to ask questions about Cipel and his background and childhood friends.
