Israeli accuses former NJ governor of assault

September 19, 2006 03:04

An Israeli who served as homeland security adviser to James McGreevey said Monday that he quit his job when the then-New Jersey governor sexually assaulted him in the back of a van during a business trip to Washington. In an interview with The Associated Press, Golan Cipel, 37, denied McGreevey's claims that the two were lovers, saying instead that he was the victim of sexual assault. McGreevey's lawyer denied Cipel's accusations. McGreevey contends he had a consensual relationship with Cipel, as described in his book.
