David Paterson Rushes to Prepare Transition
Friday, March 14, 2008
New York, NY —
David Paterson's humor was on display yesterday when he held his first press conference since the Spitzer scandal made him the the governor-to-be.
Here's how he responded when asked by a reporter if he'd ever patronized a prostitute.
PATERSON: Only the lobbyists...
REPORTER: That was just one of the quips Paterson tossed out yesterday as he tried to bring some levity to what's been a tumultuous week in Albany.
But, he was also serious about the budget, campaign finance reform and moving the state forward. Karen Dewitt has more from Albany.
