No Hannah Montana
for Disgraced Governor

Did former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey try to bribe his way backstage a Hannah Montana concert? Yes, says WZAP Radio host Zachary Sang, who happened upon the disgraced pol at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., last year – and whose tale is recounted in the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column.

“I was at a Hannah Montana concert and [McGreevey] was trying to bribe the security guard to let him [backstage],” the student at Wayne Valley High School in nearby Wayne, N.J. – tells Dr. Blogstein’s Radio Happy Hour host Dr. Blogstein on this week’s edition of the show.

“They wouldn’t let him in, though. I carry my tape recorder with me everywhere I go where I think people are going to be around. So when he was done talking to the security guard by the door, I inched my way in, put my recorder in his face and started asking questions. I asked him why he was at a Hannah Montana concert and he just said that his daughter was there somewhere. But I didn’t see [her] anywhere," adds Zach, 15, who documented the interview on tape and later wrote about it in his school newspaper.

Jim, whose 2006 memoir, The Confession, chronicles the rise and falls of his political career, resigned from office in 2004 after admitting he’d “engaged in an adult consensual affair with another man.”
