On Fred Dicker’s show, David Paterson offered an example of where he parted ways with Eliot.
The issue is whether police should be allowed to keep high school yearbooks on file in police stations. David said he’s against it and said Eliot is for it, positions they took during a radio debate years ago where they first met.
The objection is that since a witness could misidentify a suspects based on photos they’re presented with, students at certain high schools could be wrongfully implicated.
“You don’t want to impose the entire public to this kind of scrutiny,” said David.
With such a whopping lead in the polls, somebody has to find an issue to make the race competitive.
