Is this going to keep dribbling out until he’s pushed out of office too? Is there a dead girl somewhere? A live boy? What will he say tomorrow?

I guess that when you’re legally blind, you don’t have a problem getting women to take off their clothes.

Unless he's caught with a live prostitute in bed, Paterson is safe.

Went from one to several in less than 24 hours. And, one with a government worker. I guess the governors’ office will be like the Clinton Oval Office.

And then Joe Bruno would be Governor?

Now that would be some salt for Spitzer's wounds.

Paterson has been hailed as a politician of integrity and a man who can build consensus in Albany after a tumultuous year under Spitzer.

Paterson and the other woman sometimes stayed at a Days Inn on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the governor said, adding that his Albany staff sometimes stayed there as well when they were in the city. Paterson said he did not use government or campaign funds to pay for the romantic encounters.

Audit.

Great! I really hoped that Bruno might someday by NY’s governor.

Goodbye, Paterson. The first black governor of NY lasted about 15 days. Paterson may break that record.

Obama told me you can’t disown him, it’s a black thing. His philandering was a result of generation of oppression, he is can not be held to any standard except his success in that he took power from a white man.

What a way to begin a gubernatorial administration: telling the world about your extramarital affairs! It would seem as if some of the women with whom he had been involved were going public (after he had jilted them?) and he wanted to let the cat out of the bag in the least politically damaging way possible.

Well, at least he isn't gay - in so far as we know.

“New York’s newly minted governor says he had affairs with several women,
including a state employee. “

The perfect next candidate for Governor of New York:
Gene Simmons

Too bad Wilt Chamberlain didn’t live long enough to get to be a
governor!

A few past affairs (wife did it too) won’t hurt him especially since he brought it out. An affair(s) is not the same as paying many thousands to an illegal prostitute ring.

Are you sure? He didn’t specify with whom or what he was having these affairs, did he?

Because she was doing the chauffeur in the next room.
