A former aide who claims Gov. James E. McGreevey sexually harassed him said he would not sue the governor. The governor's resignation announcement was sufficient admission of his wrongdoing, Golan Cipel said in a statement written in Hebrew and released in New York by an Israeli public relations agency. Cipel is in seclusion with his family in Israel. McGreevey announced Aug. 12 that he was gay and would resign from office Nov. 15 because he had an extramarital affair with a man.

After getting elected on a promise to look out for the people's money, Gov. James E. McGreevey has spent much of his first year explaining away junkets, helicopter rides and a mysterious $110,000-a-year aide. Even poetry has proved poor politics for the Democrat: He has been accused of racism for trying to remove New Jersey's poet laureate over a Sept. 11 memorial verse critics called anti-Semitic.

A federal appeals court in Trenton rejected an attempt to force a special election to fill the seat of Gov. James E. McGreevey, who recently announced that he was gay and that he would step down Nov. 15. The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that said no special election should be held because the Democrat had only stated his intention to resign and had not yet officially vacated the office.
