...It took approximately five minutes for reporters to figure out that one of Patersons ex-girlfriends was a $150,000 employee in the governors office of yes! intergovernmental affairs. This poor woman not only had no warning, she had apparently been happily engaged in putting stickers on other peoples office doors, announcing who was in and who was out.
...This week all sorts of additional Paterson revelations have popped up in the local news media, like a credit card bill for a motel room charged to constituent services and mysterious payments to a woman who worked for his office in a mysterious capacity. Then there was Patersons memorable description of his attempt to rekindle his marriage with exciting new things, like hooking up with Michelle at a neighborhood Days Inn. Coming soon: anniversary dinner at Burger King.
Lucky for Paterson, most of the state still feels that he is way better than what were likely to wind up with if we go rummaging through the line of succession looking for someone who never committed adultery. Perhaps at some point all these people weve elected will be able to turn their attention to, say, governing

Gail Collins's wink and a nod tells more about politics in NY than any definitive study. As a card carrying leftist Collins thinks it is all too funny to really get upset about.
Is Paterson related to Kilpatrick?
If Paterson were a republican he too would be toast by now.
Funny if he is out for illegalities, wouldn’t Bruno be in?
So, really, Spitzer's deal was a bargain in comparison.
And this guy's gonna balance the budget?
You will notice, in the last sentence, she comes to the same conslusion as many Freepers......popcorn!
Politics and politicians ain’t crooked. NAH!!!!/sarc
Which he has now agreed to repay.
This makes it's all better - for a dimRat.
We all know what would happen were he a pubby...or an ordinary citizen
What twaddle. Gail is projecting.
Nothing will happen to this guy....he’s a Democrat who is blind and black!! A Republican would have been out on his keister.
UNFORTUNATELY, he's also guilty of numerous campaign finance violations.
Is that the cure for bank robbery or tax fraud too?
Looks like his vision is just fine.
Spitzer should has given”Kristin” a six figure govt. job
and a motel 8 credit card!
No, lucky for Paterson that (1) the voters here in the People's Republic of New York are dopes to start with, and (2) media like the NY Slimes and pollsters like the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute are protecting him.
Wonder how many OTHER Governor’s bimbos have $150,000.00 jobs!! Can you IMAGINE...$150,000 and she probably has no skills...well, no BUSINESS skills!
It’s like Christmas in March. With Spitzer gone and Hillary and Obama in a death spiral, I half expect Fat Teddy to admit Chappaquiddick.
So if a Jewish guy uses his own money, he’s out. A black guy uses public money, and he’s in.
I’m not a Democrat, so I have trouble with “multicultural ethics”.
