Did Paterson Lie?

Them’s fighting words in today’s New York Post: “He’s a liar,” Fredric Dicker writes of Governor David Paterson’s professed ignorance over the source of the leak about Caroline Kennedy’s “potentially embarrassing personal issues.” "I would love to know who is responsible [for the leaks about Kennedy], but at this point, I've been unable to determine that," Paterson said yesterday. Dicker alleges, however, that “the person responsible for the smear was an individual whose identity is well known to the press, whose full-time job is to do the governor's bidding, and who is intelligent enough not to call reporters to damage Kennedy's reputation without approval from the top—and that means Paterson. … The truth is that not only does Paterson know who the source of the leak was, but that Paterson is the only person in a position to have given the information to the leaker.”
