Ex-N.J. gov.'s book may tell too much

TRENTON, N.J., Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey's tell-all book about his administration may have revealed too much and could possibly get him prosecuted.

A corruption expert said "The Confession" may have supplied enough information to reconsider options in an already-closed investigation, the New York Post said Monday.

McGreevey called political patronage the "coin of the realm" in New Jersey government, the Post said. The former governor also cited land deals and appointments to the Port Authority, the state Sports Authority and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority as examples of political tit-for-tat.

McGreevey resigned in 2004 after announcing he was gay and had an adulterous relationship with a man.

U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie successfully prosecuted many of McGreevey's political friends for corruption, including his top fundraiser, billionaire developer Charles Kushner and fundraiser David D'Amaino. Most recently Christie prosecuted McGreevey's political ally, former state Senate President John Lynch.
