Where 'gay American' Jim McGreevey is, 10 years on

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Ten years ago this week, the governor of New Jersey announced he was a "gay American" and would resign. Now, Jim McGreevey is back in government but with a very different mission. He's running prison transition and job training programs in Jersey City and using his profile to push for jail reforms. McGreevey says he does not see himself as a gay rights trailblazer, though he remains the only person to have served as a governor while being openly gay. U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, who is gay, says McGreevey's resignation reinforced to younger lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people that they should be true to themselves.
