The most important line of this story: "Some political watchers said McGreevey was planning to leave early but delayed making the announcement to round up pledges for his legal fees."

The mayor of Belmar, New Jersey (not to be confused with Belmawr!) tosses that suggestion aside, saying, "That's crazy. People will contribute to McGreevey's legal fees because they like him. To dangle that as a carrot, or think people will withhold that if he doesn't go along with what they want, smells of the worst of Jersey boss politics."

Oh, so all the Democrats and Republicans calling on him to resign immediately really, really like him. You know, deep down. Also, these FBI investigations surrounding McGreevey's administration--that's not evidence of the worst Jersey boss politics.

It's the BEST Jersey boss politics!

In New Jersey, it's always this, Democrat or Republican, gay or straight, Italian or Irish, no matter which exit you live off of:

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
