We describe some novel effects generated by the gravitational Chern-Simons term similar to those induced by its electromagnetic counterpart. In particular, a structureless particle source generates a gravimagnetic field. Conversely, it causes a spinning source to contribute to the static Newtonian potential, thereby violating the equivalence principle; the potential can even become repulsive.
