And another one bites the dust. After last week’s relative lull in news about Governor David Paterson, it appears his administration is in turmoil again. But thus far he’s managed to weather the storm, and even retain the support of key Black leaders. Despite his detractors’ best efforts, it still seems premature to count to governor out. – NewsOne Staff

From the NY Times:

Marissa Shorenstein, Gov. David A. Paterson’s press secretary and acting chief spokeswoman, resigned on Wednesday. She becomes the fifth top state official to resign in the wake of a scandal over the Paterson administration’s handling of a domestic violence incident.

“It has been a privilege to serve New York State for the past two years, and I thank the governor for giving me the opportunity to do so,” Ms. Shorenstein said in a statement.

The governor appointed Morgan Hook, who had been his upstate press secretary, to be his new director of communications shortly after Ms. Shorenstein resigned. Mr. Hook is a former television news reporter and anchor, most recently in the Albany area. At the beginning of the month, he was the third-ranking official in the governor’s communications shop, and now he gets the top job after the resignations of the former communications director, Peter E. Kauffmann, and Ms. Shorenstein.

The resignations have come in the wake of a report in The New York Times that the Paterson administration and the State Police intervened in a domestic violence case involving a top aide, David W. Johnson. At least three state officials, including the governor and the head of his State Police security detail, reached out to the victim of the alleged episode, Sherr-una Booker, though it is not clear if they influenced her ultimate decision to drop pursuit of her case.
