NY Governor

Defying of the laws of gravity, N.Y. governor David Paterson has dragged the controversy surrounding him even further down the rabbit hole. Apparently the person who tattled on Governor Paterson to the press for getting involved in an aide’s domestic violence case was … Governor Paterson. Why is he revealing this information now after initially asserting that the NYT’s story was based on questionable sources? Why did he tell the New York Times about his involvement in the first place? It seems that each new piece of information that comes out about Paterson just breeds more questions. How, amid all this, he expects to remain an effective governor remains unclear. – NewsOne Staff

From CNN:

New York – New York Gov. David Paterson said he was the source of information for the story that led to an ethics investigation and the departure of five top members of his administration.

While appearing on WOR radio in New York this morning, Paterson told talk show host John Gambling that he was the person who informed the press that he interceded in an assault case involving his aide, David Johnson.

In an awkward exchange filled with moments of uncomfortable silence, Gambling said the situation “might not have come out if we didn’t have the press write the story about this, right?” Paterson responded, “No, that’s actually not true, that’s actually not true.”

After a few seconds of silence, Gambling asked, “Ummm, why?” Paterson said, “Uh, well, I don’t want to go into it but the person who informed others that there was such a conversation was me.” Sounding surprised, Gambling asked, “You informed the news?” The governor said, “Correct. That’s all I’m going to say about it. And it’s not my surmise. It’s an actual fact. But the individual who first made it clear that there had been a conversation was myself.”
