I don't see how NY Governor Paterson survives this:
"In an explosive development that puts Gov. Paterson at the center of an alleged cover-up, the governor instructed two female state workers to contact the woman involved in a domestic-violence case against his closest aide -- even enlisting one of them to ask the victim to downplay it, sources told The Post last night.
Paterson instructed his press secretary, Marissa Shorenstein -- who met with probers from Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's office yesterday -- to phone Sherr-una Booker just as the media was preparing to unleash a damning piece on Booker's ex, troubled longtime Paterson pal David Johnson, one source said.
The source said it appeared that Paterson wanted to minimize the violent nature of the incident.
The stunning revelation is the first apparent evidence that Paterson tried to influence the case against his friend, Johnson."
He' survived so far but this would seem to be the end game. So much for the party of "women" and "compassion."
