New York Governor David Paterson, according to a report published late this afternoon by “Business Insider,” is in the middle of a purported sex scandal. The blog claimed the New York Times was going to report that the governor, in office less than twenty-three months, would resign.
Later, Business Insider wrote,
“We spoke with a member of governor Paterson’s communications team who denies that the governor is planning to resign. The official confirmed that a New York Times story is in the works but says it will not run Monday.”
Off the top of my head, a resignation amid yet another Democratic sex scandal in New York would improve chances of a Republican taking the Governorship in November, but Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, who is expected to run, has a very strong hold on the candidacy. Cuomo reportedly supports same-sex marriage.
