Following his recent interview with WCBS in New York, Golan Cipel appeared on Larry King Live last night and repeated his recent claims that he is not gay, but also said that he doesn’t believe James McGreevey is exclusively gay either. “I believe that Jim McGreevey is bisexual,” said Cipel, citing stories the former New Jersey Governor told him about picking up prostitutes in the Dominican Republic and Germany.
McGreevey’s former aide and Homeland Security Advisor said that he believed his former boss began spinning a web of lies when faced against a sexual harassment lawsuit brought by Cipel after he made allegedly unwanted sexual advances:
“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.”
He also urged the gay community to be wary of McGreevey: “My point is, I’m asking the gay community, which I respect, not to embrace McGreevey. McGreevey is a man who chose violence, who is a man who committed sexual harassment to me and to others and he should not be part of that.”
These two just sound like a pair of bitter lovers out to get one another. As I said before, I don’t believe either one of them.
