The year of the political comeback just became even moreso.

Mere days after former New York governor Eliot Spitzer (D) became the second disgraced New York politician to seek a comeback in this fall's New York City elections, former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey (D) accepted a position in the public sector.

McGreevey, who resigned in 2004 amidst controversies over appointees and his affair with another man, will head up Jersey City's employment and training commission. In recent years, McGreevey has worked with prison inmates.
