McGreevey's book
selling well

The newly released memoir by former New Jersey governor James E. McGreevey, who left office amid a gay sex scandal, recorded strong sales following the first of his several television appearances to promote the tell-all book. Released on Tuesday, The Confession ranked number 4 on Amazon.com and number 7 on BarnesAndNoble.com on Wednesday.

The book includes explicit details of his relationship with an Israeli man that McGreevey says began when he was governor and a new father. The man says he is not gay and has claimed McGreevey sexually harassed him.

McGreevey's taped appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show aired Tuesday. It was followed Wednesday by an interview on NBC's Today and visits to ABC's The View and Hannity & Colmes on Fox News later. A cover story in which McGreevey talks with The Advocate will hit stands next Tuesday.

The one-time Woodbridge, N.J., mayor who would become New Jersey's top elected official stunned the nation when he announced in August 2004 that he was a "gay American" and would leave office three months later. McGreevey, 49, is still in the process of divorcing his second wife. He now lives with Australian-born financier Mark O'Donnell in Plainfield. (AP)
