Jim McGreevey filed for divorce today:
Lawyers for James E. McGreevey filed a two-page document in Union County Superior Court in Elizabeth seeking to dissolve his union with Dina Matos McGreevey. A spokeswoman for Union County Superior Court, Sandra Thaler-Gerber, confirmed receiving the filing Friday.
The two have lived apart since November 2004, when McGreevey resigned following a stunning public announcement that he was “a gay American” who had had an affair with a male staffer.
“It’s a sad day for everyone,” McGreevey told The Associated Press Friday. ”It is something that had to be done. We are blessed with a wonderful daughter who remains our focus.”
Just to totally start a rumor based on no evidence at all, he is finally filing for divorce just 17 days before civil unions become legal. Could there be non-nuptuals in the offing?
And, to further start rumors with no evidence or even substance, Dina McGreevey is writing her own version of her life with the former Governor. Could Jim be having a fit of niceness and filing for divorce before she cashes in on the book, allowing her to keep the whole bag of booty?
Any other unsubstantiated, made up rumors or interpretations can be put in the comment section.
