Governor Paterson vows to stay in office and focus on the upcoming state budget. The governor, who appeared last night at an event at Kennedy Airport in Queens, says his problems are small in comparison to the nearly nine-billion-dollar deficit facing New York. The governor insists his name will be cleared when state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo completes his investigation. The Attorney General is probing accusations Governor Paterson interfered with a domestic violence case involving a top aide and State Police abused their power in the same case. The governor is holding a town-hall style meeting Monday in Brooklyn to discuss the state's economic crisis.
Just 46-percent of New York state voters think Governor David Paterson should serve out his term. It's a big drop from the previous Quinnipiac University survey released on Wednesday showing that figure at 61 percent. Paterson faces accusations of pressuring a woman in a domestic violence case that involved one of his top aides. In addition to that, a state panel says the governor broke ethics rules by accepting free World Series tickets in 2009.
