This can’t help.

The New York State Commission on Public Integrity charged David Paterson with an ethics violation today, after the governor accepted free tickets to a World Series game back in November.

Paterson first said he had been invited, but Yankees President Randy Levine told the Post: “He’s a liar. I never talked to him.” The commission says he may lied under oath about his intention to pay for the tickets, for which he allegedly submitted a backdated check. The commission is asking Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to investigate.

Who solicited the tickets for the governor’s son, and his son’s friend?

Top aide David Johnson, according to the Post report at the time.
