Cipel says ex-Gov. McGreevey is not gay - he's bisexual

CipelTRENTON, N.J. - (AP) - The man former New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey identified as his gay lover said Thursday he believes McGreevey is not gay.

"I believe that Jim McGreevey is bisexual," said Golan Cipel, an Israeli citizen hired by McGreevey first as a campaign aide and later as his homeland security adviser.

Appearing on "Larry King Live,"  Cipel said that McGreevey's 2004 resignation speech admission that he is "a gay American" was "part of the spin."

Through lawyers, Cipel had threatened to sue McGreevey for sexual harassment shortly before and after McGreevey's resignation. A lawsuit was never filed.

"I think McGreevey had no choice. There was a sexual harassment lawsuit against him. And he didn't know what to do, and his advisers told him, 'come out first,' and he would be perceived as the victim" and thereby gain control of the story, Cipel said.

While he said McGreevey did make sexual advances toward him on several occasions, Cipel said the former governor also frequently spoke about heterosexual encounters, including sex with prostitutes on trips to Germany and the Dominican Republic.

Just because a gay man can have sex with a woman does not make him bi-sexual. If Mr. Cipel feels he needs to make Mr. McGreevy a bi-sexual in order to accept his own sexuality let him. However, anyone who watched CBS-TV New York's interview with Mr. Cipel knows what a liar/actor he is with absolutely no credibility. He's just trying to earn the money he was unable to extort from the ex-Govrnor.
