    To protect the integrity of our country I think every male candidate should be castrated.

    So did the NYT ever break a story on him, or was it just hype?

    What really baffles me is the idea that someone must resign over a "sex scandal". The only thing that should force someone to resign is their inability to do the job they were elected to do. An active sex life is generally not a hindrance.

    Nothing yet. Paterson was just talking about it in a press conference about the coming snow storm. Here's a story from 4 minutes ago:


    Paterson assails ‘feeding frenzy’ of gossip
    February 9, 2010 at 5:13 pm by Casey Seiler


    If you thought a press conference to discuss snowstorm preparedness seemed like a rather mundane topic to rope in Gov. David Paterson this week, you will not have been surprised to hear that the vast majority of the Q&A was devoted to questions about what the New York Times might or might not be reporting about him. The real blizzard under discussion, it turned out, involved deep drifts of loose talk piling up around the Capitol.


    Paterson, who said he sat down with Times reporters today for an interview, seemed to relish the chance to push back against almost two weeks of speculation that a bombshell story was in the works.

    It is a hindrance when enemies of the state have evidence that they can use to blackmail you with.

    Why don't people understand this? Character and personal responsibility isn't just important, it is required to serve in a position of power.
