The call has intensified for Governor David Paterson to leave.....Not just give up his race for election, but to leave the office he assumed under strange circumstances two years ago. The scandal involving aid David Johnson will leave Paterson unable to govern regardless of the circumstances. The effort to push Paterson aside by his own party has been intense even before this incident came to light. The reality is that Paterson cannot run as the populist outsider as a member of a party that is anything but....and he seems to have exercised extraordinary poor judgment in his appointment of Johnson as his "body man" and top aide.
True, there were many in his party greasing the skids beneath him, but this incident is hard to overcome, given the other misgivings and low poll numbers the Governor has.
New York is fiscally out of control and the tiller is in the hand of....well I dont know who.....Reports are the Governor has not even spoken to Lt. Governor Ravitch in weeks.
Mr. Ravitch is free of the taint surrounding the Governor and has no ambitions beyond his current office. Perhaps it is best if he finishes out the year.
Enough, governor - NYPOST.com
