Despite calls for his immediate resignation, Governor McGreevey goes about business

Despite those calling for him to step down immediately, Governor Jim McGreevey (D-NJ) was back at work Wednesday.

After taking the morning off, Governor McGreevey had nothing to say to reporters when he arrived at the statehouse around 12:30 p.m. In the afternoon, the governor met with groups regarding stem cell research and the Xanadu amusement project at the Meadowlands.

While McGreevey continues with his duties, Republicans are still calling for him to resign immediately. State Republican Chairman Joe Kyrillos said, "The governor, by virtue of his own resignation, has said yeah, I know this is too much of a load for me to carry, and so he's already resigned."

On Wednesday, Senator Jon Corzine said he will not run for governor if there is a special election.
