Embattled NY Governor David Paterson Says He’s Not Running,


It’s official … embattled New York Governor David Paterson will not run for reelection; however, he stated he will serve out his term and not resign from office.

A scandal-scarred Gov. Paterson formally ended his short-lived election campaign Friday afternoon.

Paterson, under investigation by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo for contacting a woman who accused one of his top aides of domestic violence, made the announcement at his Manhattan office with his wife, Michelle, at his side.

“I am being realistic about politics,” he said. “It hasn’t been the latest distraction, it’s been an accumulation of obstacles that has obfuscated me from bringing my message to the public.

What a disaster for Democrats the NY Governors office has been in recent years.  First the Eliot Spitzer scandal and now this, Paterson’s acknowledgment and involvement in  his longtime aide David W. Johnson
