OK, I'll believe anything now

Gubernatorial three-ways? Why not?
A former aide to James E. McGreevey said today that he had three-way sexual trysts with the former governor and his wife before he took office, challenging Dina Matos McGreevey's assertion that she was naive about her husband's sexual exploits.
The aide, Theodore Pedersen, said he and the couple even had a nickname for the weekly romps, from 1999 to 2001, that typically began with dinner at T.G.I. Friday's and ended with a threesome at McGreevey's condo in Woodbridge.
They called them "Friday Night Specials," according to Pedersen.
(Via Memeorandum.) Is this Pedersen guy a shameless opportunist and publicity hound? No doubt. But does that mean he's lying? Not necessarily. I mean, we're talking about Democrats here. Anything's possible.

Andrew Sullivan seems a bit too eager to credit Pedersen, saying that Mrs. McGreevey's "professed shock at [her husband's] possible gayness doesn't seem quite so convincing once you read the story." Well, assuming that Pederson's telling the truth, yeah. But remember: Pedersen is a Democrat. It's never safe to assume a Democrat is telling the truth.

Gateway Pundit reminds us of reports from 2004 about McGreevey's favoritism toward handsome young male aides who tended to get promotions and raises even when New Jersey was facing a budget crisis.

  1. He is telling "his truth" (in the words of James McGreevey), not "the truth". Belief that there is such a thing as objective truth is for "neocons" ;-)
