    How come none of this crap is ever learned BEFORE the election????? Jim


    Gov. David Paterson admits to sleeping with another woman while he was married to wife, Michelle.


    David Paterson married Michelle Paige in November 1992.
    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.

    Well that's a new twist - announce it right off the bat so the media won't go dig it up.

    I think Brian is on the right track. With people still reeling over the spitzer scandal, they (paterson and his wife) probably figured that the PTB (powers that be) wouldn't want to go through that all over again right away, and everyone will have forgotten about it by the time the next election rolls around. Good move strategically i suppose.

    He and his wife fessed up, not to get caught in a pickle down the road. Like his boss did. Hap

    Somehow I think who does what with whom and when and why and where and how and all of that may not always directly correlate to character; too many variables, and I really don't want to know as long as the politician does not make decisions based upon who did what when and how to him or her. But that's unlikely. So be it; darn, it's still a high school world.

    I think that a reason that they have confessed is because it may be well known.

    Here is one I heard the other day:

    Do you know how to slow a prostitute down in New York?

    Put a Governor on her!

    I am just siting here remembering the stories of the Governer of another state,

    that used his State troopers to pick up his "dates" for him!

    I am wandering if it isn't a Governer thing, but maybe it is just a DEM thing!

    How about Governor John Corzine, in New Jersey? Thought he was immune to auto crashes, and needed no seat belt. Guess he thought his station in life repealed the laws of physics.

    This is the patrician attitude of those elected to serve the people. No perk is too expensive for people to bear.

    Best,

    Gee, I wonder if the big fight about not letting the telephone companies be sued for making illegal phone taps on U.S. citizen's phone calls could have anything to do with the prosecutions that may take place based on information gathered in those illegal phone taps? Like those in power might just find something to "leverage" an opponent into not fighting some action or another maybe?

    Listening in on a call and finding someone was playing with a "working girl" might just provide a means to handle someone who is getting a bit too "uppity" now couldn't it?

    pyrdek, Remember that when Spitzer was attorney general of NY he was then (8-9 years ago)soliciting the services of these "working girls" as you call them. He was also prosecuting other prostitution rings while being involved with the ring he got caught at(could he have been pressured into it by the mob?). Authorities are also in the belief that he used campaign funds to pay for the "fun". Other people get prosecuted for the Mann Act so why shouldn't he. He was the first to try to get everyone prosecuted he could, he made no friends.He loved being called a "Steamroller". He ruined a lot of careers on his way to the governor's mansion without any reason.Maybe the payback was more in that arena than political. It sounds as if you like to chose just the facts that you want to talk about and ignore the others. I think he was dirty. Since becoming governor, the govenor's office has been embroilled in one scandal after another. If it were just one instance, I'd say maybe you're right, but there has been so many. Too many to ignore. Enough so he didn't even pull a "Bill Clinton" to say he was not involved. They have him dead to rights and he is just trying to hang on his realtor's and bar(lawyer) license. If he is convicted of a felon, they are automatically taken away from him.

    Pyrdek, the telephone taps for things like suspected violations of the Mann Act have to be accompanied by a search warrant with probable cause.

    Suspected terrorists fall under the FISA Act. There's an entirely different process in place.

    There's a little bit of a difference between an "affair" and soliciting a hooker with laundered money. I'll respect the guy for coming forth with the facts before they were dug up. It's a done deal and if anyone starts to bring it up again, they are the bad guys and not Paterson.

    When Spitzer gave up his State furnished vehicles, he bought a Escort and a Hummer! Cray
