Paterson Makes a Lobbyist Joke

David Paterson just wrapped up his address and answered questions from reporters, saying, among other things, that he “generally” has the same political philosophy he had as a state senator.

He declined to say flat out that he’d abide by Eliot Spitzer’s $10,000 campaign contribution limit.

The second-to-last question to Paterson came from New York Sun reporter Jacob Gershman, who asked whether he’d ever patronized prostitutes.

No, Paterson said, only lobbyists.
