Jim and Mark buy a house
I said it before, and I'll say it again: you were a horrible, scandal-plagued governor, but I'm glad Jim is at peace with himself and trying to be happy. Good luck with the new house, Jim -- it sounds fancy!
The ivy-covered Georgian Colonial boasts eight bedrooms, five fireplaces and four bathrooms. The neighborhood is home to several local politicians, including former Plainfield Mayor Al McWilliams and Assemblyman Jerry Green (D-Union).

The palatial home, which includes a solarium, a butler's pantry and in-ground swimming pool, sits on 1.7 acres and was originally built for a founder of the New York Stock Exchange. Its gardens were designed by the firm of noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who created Central Park.
