McGreevey continues to govern, making no public appearances
Governor McGreevey's (D-NJ) recent announcement touched off a firestorm of political activity throughout the state, but nowhere was it felt harder than at the state Capitol. This week, McGreevey handled the pressure of having to answer questions, by not answering questions. He used state police to keep reporters across the parking lot each day when he entered the state building.The bigger pressure came from Republicans and some Democrats who called on him to step down now so they could hold a special election. But McGreevey held his ground and even told Senate President Richard Codey (D-West Orange), the man who will serve out the rest of his term, that he was not going to budge until November 15.Meanwhile, McGreevey continued to hold meetings behind closed doors at the Statehouse. He didn't make one single public appearance this week. But, his staff says that will change, perhaps as early as next week.
