McGreeveys to share pension fund

Former New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey will split a $135,000 pension account with ex-wife Dina Matos under terms of a consent agreement signed by both parties. McGreevey resigned as governor in 2004 after announcing he was gay and had an extramarital affair with another man.

He and Matos were divorced last August. Superior Court Judge Karen Cassidy divided the marital assets, awarding Matos close to $110,000.

In a statement Thursday, Matos said she filed a motion in March over the pension account funds.

McGreevey said the account predated his marriage to Matos and he felt the money was not part of his marital estate. His lawyer said McGreevey agreed to share it in a spirit of conciliation.

The consent order was signed Wednesday.
