This story about Governor McGreevey is all over the US at the moment. I have to say he's a brave man who's done a very hard thing: you have to salute his courage. I can also see the Republicans' point, however, in that if he can't continue and will have to resign it ought to be immediate. Nevertheless it does seem tough to make it too political when he's had to deal with something so hard.
(Unless it was a political decision to cover up an impending mega-scandal...)
