What Story?

Over the last few days I’ve been hearing about a “blockbuster” New York Times story that will contain revelations that will force David Paterson to resign as governor of the State of New York.  Although I am entertained by the notion of another governor being booted for “personal failings”, I think this game may have gone on a little too long this time.  Let’s look at the facts as we know them right now.  Oh, that’s right, there aren’t any.  No story has come out.  No salacious bits of information have been substantiated.  There is NOTHING.  Paterson has rebuked claims of a major expose.

So what happens next?  More to the point, what happens if the story comes out and there’s nothing to it?  Oh, I’m sure there will be references to his actions already disclosed on his first day as governor.  Maybe the Times has some new information on old things.  But what if, essentially, there is no news?  Is Paterson in a postition to turn that back upon the folks that are stirring this pot?  Or is Paterson so far damaged already that he’s done no matter what?  Interesting questions.  I guess we’ll just have to wait for that story.

    If it’s just rehashed junk, his stock goes up. As it is, he is starting to get some grudging respect and a slight rise in popularity for being the only one in Albany trying to do something about the deficit. Right now I care little about Cuomo. And if Lazio wants some traction, he better start being a little more visible.
