Paterson to Launch Reelection Campaign

New York Governor David Paterson is furious about a rumored New York Times story that some say is so salacious it could end his career. "For the last couple of weeks, I have been the subject of what, even by Albany standards, has been a spate of outrageous rumors about me," Paterson tells the New York Post. "There is an accountability that should exist in the media. How do I get my reputation back?" Thumbing his nose at his critics, The Wall Street Journal says Paterson will announce plans for reelection next week.
