It's Come To This: Jim McGreevey Offering Advice to Mark Sanford

Nothing like the media seeking commentary from a man who trolled New Jersey Turnpike rest areas for anonymous gay sex. Say what you want about Mark Sanford, but the last guy to be chiming in should be Jim McGreevey.
Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey today told Gov. Mark Sanford, the beleaguered governor of South Carolina, to "move forward with humility," comparing Sanford's struggles with what McGreevey called his "own moment of truth," during an interview on The Today show this morning.

"I'm filled with a sense of pain and anguish for him and for his family," McGreevey said in the interview. "I think it was a very human moment."

Sandford [sic] admitted Wednesday he had secretly flown to Argentina to visit a woman with whom he was having an affair, after a widely covered disappearance over Father's Day weekend.

McGreevey had a similarly shocking news conference in 2004, where he revealed he was having a secret affair with Golan Cipel, one of his aides, and declared in front of television cameras to be a "gay American."
On the upside, he managed to avoid cracking any Sarah Palin jokes.
