Golan is an Israeli man with whom politician Jim McGreevey began an affair during a trip to Israel in the mid-2000s. McGreevey created a position in his administration for Golan in order to bring the man back to the U.S.—but when McGreevey feared that those around him would notice the affair, he distanced himself from Golan, and Golan threatened to sue for sexual harassment. McGreevey held a press conference, admitted to the affair, and resigned.
