Paterson Camp Accuses Cuomo of Sabotage

David Paterson’s campaign and supporters are accusing Attorney General Andrew Cuomo of deliberately undermining the governor in the press. Last week, The New York Times reported that the state’s ethics panel had been reviewing a request from three good-government groups to investigate the Paterson administration for leaking the confidential information Caroline Kennedy provided during the Senate vetting process early this year.  Keith Wright, a strong supporter of David Paterson, expressed a suspicion that Blair Horner, the legislative director of the New York Public Interest Research Group who once worked for the attorney general and is now spearheading the call for an investigation, may be acting as an agent for Cuomo.
