David Paterson Finds Himself in the Box-Will Not Run

Remember a few days ago when New York Governor David Paterson announced that he would run for re-election in spite of a New York Times investigation into extra-marital affairs and that the only way he would leave office was in a box?


Today, Paterson announced in the loftiest terms that he would not run for re-election because of certain, uh, "distractions, obstacles and obfuscations" that keep him from "getting his message" to the people of New York.

The distractions/obstacles/obfuscations are that another report has come out, this time about Paterson's alleged intervention in the attempt of a woman to get a restraining order against one of Paterson's aides in the wake of an alleged violent attack. According to the story, Paterson and/or his members of his entourage "persuaded" the woman not to get the restraining order. In other words, Paterson got "his message" to the woman.

That's right, Yogi. The Governor of New York.

This guy Paterson has more personal scandals going than Bill Clinton when he was in the White House. No matter how lofty he words his decision not to seek re-election-the guy is a sleazebag.

Say goodbye, Governor.
