David Paterson is really trying to put and end to the speculation he’s resigning.
“The only way I’m not going to be governor next year is at the ballot box. And the only way that I’ll be leaving office before is in a box,” Paterson said, at a press conference in Albany.
He also said he conducted an interview with The New York Times and they did not ask about extramarital affairs or drug use, which were two of the topics rumored to be part of the big Times piece that has yet to be published.
Paterson said he contacted an editor at The Times, who told him they’re not responsible for what other news outlets report. He also said he’s written a letter to The Times‘ public editor, addressing how the paper handled this story.
