(Newser) – Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey's wife Dina was all over the media last week blasting Eliot Spitzer for hypocrisy and empathizing with this aggrieved wife. That was too much for Teddy Pedersen, a former McGreevey driver and aide who says  “she’s out there being as dishonest as anyone could be.” Pederson says Dina had to know her hubby was gay all along because Pedersen had three-way sex with the couple on numerous occasions.

The trysts began in the late 1990s while the pair was dating, Pedersen claims, and continued through their marriage, but ended by the time McGreevey became governor. “We called it the Friday Night Special,” he notes. Pederson spilled to the New York Post after giving a deposition on the subject for the couple's ugly divorce proceedings. Dina claims the former governor tricked her into a loveless marriage by hiding his homosexuality. "She's framed herself as a victim—yet she was a willing participant, she had complete control over what happened in her relationship," Pederson said.
