They Just Don't Want You Gov. Paterson!

Embattled New York Governor David Paterson has been as defiant as any politician that I've seen in recent memory. He's received messages from as high as the White House that he's no longer wanted as the governor, and that it would be in his best interest not to seek reelection. New rumors surfacing of extra marital affairs are now dogging him and he's spending more time denying rumors than running the state. Whether the rumors are true at this point really isn't the issue, as it's becoming increasingly obvious that someone wants him out of office immediately. Paterson stated yesterday that the only way he's leaving office is in a box according to the New York Post.

The powers that be probably only want Paterson to state that he's not running for reelection, which Paterson will not do. It's clear that Paterson may want to cut his losses and announce that he's not running. If he doesn't he may be risking a completely shattered reputation.
