McGreevey To Sanford: "Honesty Is The Best Policy"

NEW YORK (AP) -- Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey says honesty may be the best policy in saving South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's career.

McGreevey said Thursday on NBC's "Today" that he could relate to the emotions Sanford felt when he announced his extramarital affair.

McGreevey says: "I'm filled with a sense of pain and anguish for him and his family."

Nearly five years ago, McGreevey announced that he had an extramarital affair with another man and would resign. But he says he doesn't necessarily think Sanford's political career is over.

Says McGreevey: "He can be that much more of a better governor because it's admitting his nature, understanding the wrongs."

McGreevey asked that people extend compassion to Sanford during this "very stressful" time.
