Paterson to Democrats: Open the Chamber and Have a Vote

ALBANY—David Paterson wants the State Senate to vote on new leadership.
Today he continued to blast Republicans and renegade Democrats who chose one of the last weeks of session to mount a coup in New York’s upper chamber. Paterson also called on Democrats who still hold the keys to “open the doors” of government and vote.
“They can resolve that issue by just holding another vote. If the votes are sustaining that leadership, then they would hold up,” Paterson said. When asked, he said he had no reason to believe there would be a different vote count. He was then asked whether, as a Democratic Party leader, he would acquiesce to Smith losing power.
