Closet Governor Released Early -- McGreevey Connection Coincidental

Share Article

New Jersey Governor James McGreeveyÂ?s recent announcement that he is a Â?gay AmericanÂ? occurred after Closet Governor was in the publication process. The release date for Closet Governor was early because of production efficiencies and not because of the McGreevey announcement.

Gary M. Perkins and Hal Stockbridge, published by iUniverse, Inc., the leading provider of publishing technology solutions for authors, announced today that their novel, Closet Governor, is now available for purchase.

CLOSET GOVERNOR weaves its fiction around the realities of modern elective office holders - realities that force us to question our view of public officials. Does a public life consume all rights of privacy? Is privacy the last refuge of the corrupt politician? What separates the person from the office held?

Closeted Lieutenant Governor George Vantage is sworn in as governor after the sudden resignation of the incumbent but soon finds himself threatened by an anonymous caller eager to expose the "faggot governor." Openly gay reporter Michael Harrington views the new governor as his ticket onto the front page of his newspaper. Jason Covington is a peeping tom who gets off watching the new governor sleep. The situation explodes when Vantage wakes up and sees a silhouette in his bedroom window. Security guards shoot from below and Vantage grabs his gun and shoots without thinking. A body crashes through the window exposing Vantage to all.
