`Law & Order' takes on political sex scandal ("McGreevey" plot tonight)
LOS ANGELES -- A governor of a small Northeastern state announces his resignation, driven from office by a gay sex scandal. It happened in New Jersey and it happens again on "Law & Order."

Wednesday's episode of the NBC drama, titled "Gov Love," revolves around a fictional Connecticut governor who is married but has an affair with a male state employee.

The relationship is disclosed when the governor's wife is murdered and detectives find a link between the employee and a contractor whose financial dealings with the state may involve corruption.

The issue of gay marriage also is debated in the episode (airing 10 p.m. EDT Wednesday).

Married New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey has resigned and is leaving Nov. 15 over an affair with a man identified as Golan Cipel, hired by the governor in 2002 to head the state's Homeland Security department despite little experience. Cipel has steadfastly denied any involvement with McGreevey.
