I officially live in the best damned part of the country. You guys out in the hinterlands may get your political sex scandals every now and then, but we get 'em with a quantity discount.
Last week, outspoken crusader against prostitution, Eliot Spitzer was revealed to be a regular customer. His best selling memoir will be out next week.
Yesterday, David Paterson was sworn in to replace Mr. Spitzer. His inaugural address could easily have been mistaken for a stand-up bit at Caroline's. Shortly after making his speech, he and his wife revealed to the Daily News that they had each had affairs a few years ago, but had patched up their difficulties.
Jim McGreevey, news-whore extraordinaire was not to be outdone. You'll, of course, remember him as the "Gay-American" ex-Governor of New Jersey. So, Dina Matos McGreevey, who is in a bitter custody battle with Jimmy was extremely vocal about Spitzer's indiscretions and Jimmy's ex-chauffer Tim Pederson just couldn't take it any more. In order to contradict Dina's stance that she was blindsided when Jimmy announced that he was gay, Timmy claimed that he took part in a weekly three-way with Jimmy and Dina before he was Governor. Dina says it never happened.
OK, since one of them is obviously lying, how do you prove which one? Will Timmy be describing Dina's birthmarks in court soon? I have no idea, but we'll certainly be hearing more about this than any of us ever cared to know before.
And more importantly, what's the matter with Connecticut Governor, Jodi Rell? Why are you letting NY and NJ grab the spotlight. When do we discover the tawdry details of your relationship with Martha Stewart. How come your protection detail never reported the thousands of dollars you've spent at Chippendale's? C'mon Jodi, fess up. Do your part to keep the Tri-State area great!
