Paterson Denies Resignation Rumors

Does The New York Times have a big scoop on Governor David Paterson, or is this just Vicki Iseman redux? Reports all weekend that the Times would run a career-endangering story about Paterson on Monday appear to have been incorrect. A Paterson spokeswoman tells Gawker that the story won’t run “any time soon,” that it does not contain anything scandalous, and that it will run in the Metro section as a profile. "There is absolutely zero truth to these rumors. The governor is not resigning,” she says.
