No news. Empty newsstands stored in the Asbury Park Press’s empty parking lot in Neptune.
In their editorial posted last evening, the
Asbury Park Press Editorial Board The Neptune Nudniks lecture New York City voters on character and morality.
As if they are an authority on character and morality and have readers from New York! Maybe they are hoping some bennies here for the weekend will read their paper instead of Greg’s List.
The Nudnik’s homily bemoans the fact that former Congressman Anthony Weiner and former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer are doing very well in the polls in their campaigns for municipal office in New York.

Stonger Than The Scorn

Former Governor Jim McGreevey is back in government service, according to a report in The Jersey Journal.
Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop appointed McGreevey to the position of Executive Director of the Jersey City Employment and Training Commission. The commission is apparently a new venture of Fulop’s who made job creation and the establishment of a re-entry program for ex-offenders a major plank of his recent election campaign. There is no information about the commission on the city’s website.
Fulop’s spokesperson, Jennifer Morrill, did not know what McGreevey’s salary will be when we asked her. She promised to get back to us with that information and whether or not the job is pensionable.
UPDATED: Morrill said that McGreevey’s salary is $110,000. The commission is an independent authority, which is why there is no information about it on Jersey City’s website.

Spitzer to join Weiner in making a come back
The New York Times is reporting that former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is reentering the political arena with a run for the office of New York City Comptroller. Spitzer resigned the governorship five years ago amid a prostitution scandal involving Ashley Dupree of Monmouth County.
Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who was forced to resign after tweeting nude and nearly nude pictures of himself to young women, and lying about it, is also making a political comeback. Weiner is running in the New York City Democratic Primary for Mayor.
Spitzer and Weiner are hoping that New York voters are as forgiving as South Carolina voters when it comes to personal indiscretions. Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford’s political career appeared to be over in 2011 after he left his state to be with his Argentinian mistress. Sanford was elected to Congress in May.
Jim McGreevey has to be tempted.

New York Post love and sex columnist Ashley Dupre is opening a lingerie boutique in Red Bank.
RedBankGreen broke the story.
Femmebyashley is opening on Broad Street in May.
Dupre gained notoriety as a result of her involvement in the scandal that forced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer from office.
Ashley was made infamous, not famous, by the Elliot Spitzer scandal. It is nothing she hoped for and nothing she takes pride in. She is, however, very proud of the person she has become since that scandal. Closing the door on that chapter of her life with great integrity, Ashley has moved on to be a positive force for people of all ages by taking her experiences and using them to help others lead better, more productive, fulfilling, positive lives.

Based on a recent column, it would seem Dupre certainly believes in her product:
