NY Governors: First Spitzer Sex Scandal, Then David Paterson Sex, Drugs and Hotel Bills … Pot Head & Cocaine Use


The New York Governor David Paterson … Sex … Drugs … Hotel Bills. Can Rock n’ Roll be far behind?

Paterson: I Did Coke!

What on earth is going on in the Democratic party in New York? It would appear that The Gateway Pundit is asking the same questions. Maybe we should start looking at who is next in line for the governorship in NY?

The good people of New York state deserve much better out of their governor than what Democrats have given them. First Eliot Spitzer makes a mockery of the position with his prostitution ring sex scandal. Also that he appears in his career to actually have prosecuted some sex rings while giving others that he used a pass.

Then comes along Lieutenant Governor David Paterson to take the disgraced Spitzer’s job. No sooner was Paterson sworn in than we find out that both he and his wife already had affairs of their own.  Now we learn that Paterson was a pot head and cocaine user in the past.

Paterson told Carter he spoke publicly about past drug use when he was Spitzer’s runningmate in 2006.

UPDATE: Here’s the exchange:

Dominic Carter: You have?

David Paterson: Yes

Dominic Carter: Marijuana?

David Paterson: Yes

Dominic Carter: Cocaine?

David Paterson: Yes

Dominic Carter: You used cocaine governor?

David Paterson: I’d say I was 22 or 23, I tried it a couple of times, yes.

Dominic Carter: When is the last time that — is that the only time you’ve tried cocaine, governor?

David Paterson: Yeah, around that time, a couple of times and marijuana, probably, when I was about 20. I don’t think I’ve touched marijuana since the late 70s

However, pot and coke may be the least of Paterson’s issues. There are some 13 or so hotel bills charged to the state of NY that need to be explained. The NY Post had reported the following:

Despite owning a house less than 20 minutes from the state Capitol, Gov. Paterson, as lieutenant governor, routinely used taxpayer money to stay at nearby hotels, The Post has learned.

Credit-card records obtained from the state Comptroller’s Office covering Paterson’s nearly 15 months as lieutenant governor showed he charged his state credit card for 13 Albany hotel stays totaling more than $2,500 between Jan. 1, 2007, and this past Feb. 18.

“It’s a bit odd, and it’s the kind of thing that certainly raises eyebrows,” said Susan Lerner, of Common Cause New York, a government watchdog group.

      Politics is becoming the filthiest profession. If it’s not a prostitution scandal, it’s drugs, or bathroom stalls, or money in the freezer, or secret documents stuffed down the pants and socks.

      Hey at least he is honest about his use as opposed to GWB and the child molestors of the rethug party! Aren’t a bunch of McCains backers ex- coke dealers?

      Heaven help us all. All of this needs to be out front, no matter the political party.

      madmatt. I don’t care who it is, unlike a lot of political puppets. My party of choice does not dictate my morals. If it’s wrong it’s wrong.

      My brain is able to make decisions, I don’t need a political party to tell me when its ok for wrong doing.

      What a con-artist culture ours has become.

      Stuff like this provides the strongest evidence for the need to cut down on government power … which means cutting down on the flow of money to Washington, and the states.

      This also means that a lot of government programs are going to have to be eliminated.

      Fine by me.

      I recently watched Celebrity Rehab,

      I bet if a “Politicians Rehab” were made, it would make the celebrities look like Snow White.

      BTW anyone here Spitzer saying he is an addict?

      Your idiot boy king did it too. He also is a dry drunk. You ought to be proud! You all deserve each other.

      I am quite perplexed as to
      how he actually located the
      line to snort.

      David Paterson couldn’t hit
      the broadside of a barn
      with a dang cannon.

      WE ALL have done things in our youth.I respect David for taking the HIGH road of honesty and putting to bed any black-mailing intentions and slander from others.

      BTW…Being slight of sight only widens awareness.
      That just might scare some.

      Maybe someday HE would be a GREAT man to run for President.

      Obama is a false profit we must beware of…..

      The cocaine thing was definitely a surprise to me…having partied with plenty of people across party lines cocaine tends to be more popular among republicans, whereas the democrats usually stick with the marijuana.

      Patterson was honest, Bush would never answer that question
      Scared Monkey DID you ever use any illegal drug ?

      The governor of New York, David Paterson. The fact that he made it to the position of Lt. Governor on his own merit and subsequently governor by default as a blind, black American male tells you right off that he is exceptional. His seeming complete purging of skeletons from any closets days after his inauguration may have disturbed some but, for me, is more an indication of his extraordinariness. An indication that he has not been greatly influenced by the politics as usual machine. His candor is only troublesome because we’re used to politicians lying to us. Uninitiated honesty is a foreign concept in the politics that have developed in this country, particularly over the past century. Even I squirmed a little when I heard him on Dominic Carter’s program speaking of past drug use. The situations of Paterson and Spitzer are in almost diametric opposition to one another. On one hand, you have a governor who, while gaining the reputation of being a pitbull in the war against racketeering and corporate criminals, was deeply involved in a lascivious and illegal scandal of his own. Paterson, on the other hand has admitted to behaviors that he indulged in many years ago before it could come up against him. That no other politician that I know of has ever done this is not necessarily an indication of the piety of our politicians but more the deceptive nature of the political turf. It is we who choose to hold our elected officials to some impossible standard (similar to the expectations of the Catholic church of its priests) and are appalled and dismayed when their human nature lets us down again and again. To condemn David Paterson for being honest without considering the full measure of the man and the courage it takes in such an environment to be so honest is a disservice to him and the rest of us.
