(Newser) – Jim McGreevey has backed up his aide's claim that the two were involved in three-way sex with his estranged wife, contradicting her earlier denial. "This happened, this happened in the past, and now we need to move on with our lives," the former New Jersey governor told the AP. The McGreeveys' bitter divorce case is before the courts, and the aide is expected to be called as a witness.

Earlier, Dina Matos McGreevey claimed that Teddy Pedersen's claims of three-way trysts were "completely false and were prompted by Jim McGreevey," who she charges helped the aide get jobs over the years. The aide, who is now 29, has already given a sworn  statement and offered to take a lie detector test after hearing of Dina. McGreevey's denial. He originally came forward after she claimed in a television interview that she didn't know her husband was gay until his resignation.
