[NY] Gov. Paterson admits to sex with other woman for years
www.nydailynews.com ^ | Monday, March 17th 2008, 9:44 PM

Posted on 03/17/2008 6:54:49 PM PDT by InvisibleChurch

The thunderous applause was still ringing in his ears when the state's new governor, David Paterson, told the Daily News that he and his wife had extramarital affairs.

In a stunning revelation, both Paterson, 53, and his wife, Michelle, 46, acknowledged in a joint interview they each had intimate relationships with others during a rocky period in their marriage several years ago.

In the course of several interviews in the past few days, Paterson said he maintained a relationship for two or three years with "a woman other than my wife," beginning in 1999.

I can understand him turning a blind eye to her indiscretions, but her? Go figure.

Big deal. He and his wife were having problems. There’s no indication that he broke the law or used tax money and he admitted it.

I’m not defending adultery, and this guy may be a lib, but I have to give him props for candor.

Not too sure if its adultery if his wife knew about it, but I agree, it is good that he fessed up before another scandal rocked NY.

Compared to the Emperors Club VIP, this seems somewhat anti-climactic. I think by getting it out in the open on his first day in office he has effectively diffused the issue.

Glad they worked it out. Not only for the kids, but they acted like adults, sought counseling (when needed) and worked through a tough time in their marriage. Can't say I know what they went though, but congrats to them for sticking with it.

the Brits were right, when Clinton was let off.

Thanks for making it mainstream, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton.

Was her name Kristin? Ashley?

Asked if he had stayed with anyone else since 2001 at the same West Side hotel, Paterson said, “From time to time I used to take Michelle to that hotel.”

Notice he didn't answer "No" to the question

For Republicans, scandal will have them thrown out of office.

For democRATS, it's a resume enhancer..

In a second interview with Paterson and his wife Monday, only hours after he was sworn in to replace scandal-scarred Eliot Spitzer, Michelle Paterson confirmed her husband’s account.

I heard this was going to happen, and I've been watching FOXNews.com and MSNBC.com and they've had NOTHING about it.

The only breaking news I saw one have was about some divorce settlement for Paul McCartney.

You'd think nothing happened in NY.

Geez, talk about priorities.

He is smart to get it out there now, rather than have this used against him. Now it’s basically a non story.
