Governor Paterson Ends Bid for Full Term

340x_paterson_03.jpg

At 3:17 p.m. today, New York Governor David Paterson ended his bid for a full term at a press conference, and addressed the media swarm that has surrounded him for weeks. “I have never abused my office. Not now, not ever,” he said.

“After three weeks, all rumors were dispelled in the end,” Paterson said, in reference to the media cycle precipitated by rumors of a huge New York Times scoop. We know now that it was his closest adviser David Johnson — who did work in a communications and policy capacity — that was the source of the biggest problems.

All the major news networks carried the presser live, except for NBC which was showing the USA vs. Finland hockey game. For more on that, turn to TVNewser shortly.
