Kennedys ‘Apoplectic’ at Paterson

Watch your back, Cuddle Guv! The Kennedy family is spoiling for a fight over New York Gov. David Paterson’s treatment of Caroline during her bid for Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat. The clan is “apoplectic,” the New York Post reports. “The governor’s going to pay for this,” a “well-placed Democrat” tells the paper. “Ted is furious. The family is furious. The Kennedys are now against the governor.” And New York magazine reports Paterson wanted Caroline to lie about her withdrawal. “You can’t withdraw,” he reportedly told her late Wednesday. “You’ve got to stay in this thing, and I’ll just not pick you.”
