NY Governor Under Fire: Calls For Paterson Meeting

MYFOXNY/AP - The Reverend Al Sharpton is hosting an emergency meeting with minority leaders in Harlem on Thursday night to discuss whether Governor David Paterson should resign.

Pressure is mounting for Paterson to step down following several recent scandals.

The NY Post reports Sharpton- who has been a supporter of the embattled governor- may be rethinking his position.

A Democratic party adviser tells the Associated Press the meeting will take place at a restaurant.

Paterson was accused Wednesday of breaking ethics laws when he sought and obtained free Yankees tickets for the 2009 World Series and then may have lied about his intention to pay for them, according to a state report.

He faces penalties of nearly $100,000, and the case was referred to the Albany County prosecutor's office and the state attorney general for possible criminal investigation into whether Paterson or anyone else gave false answers to questions by the Public Integrity Commission or backdated a check to pay for the tickets.

Whether you like Patterson or not at least on perk of being governor is a couple of tickets to a damn yankees game sheesh! He is the governor of the state for crying out loud. It was not like he was there to a watch the game.

My understanding is that the State Party and the Obamites, now in full panic mode after blowing the Massachusetts Senate Race, see Patterson for some reason as a loser and they want to throw him over the side and are leaking a lot of this themselves.

I understand that under the circumstances he did a pretty good job, and was really just an accidental governor anyway after Spitzer's demise.

Can't a blind man get no symphathy? Maybe he ought to start playing some violins--you know. Crying on camera. Talking about how he was abused. How people used to trick him into thinking a waffel iron was braille--
