David Paterson was sworn in as governor of New York today, and followed that happy event with a newspaper interview in which he and his wife admitted they have each had affairs during the course of their marriage.
Nothing like unloading bad news on the first day of an administration.
But hey, he swears he didn't use state funds or campaign cash to pay for his extramarital flings.
Meanwhile, the stories about the former governor of New Jersey...I don't even want to go there, except to speculate perhaps McGreevey and his pal are trying to smear Mrs. McGreevey for leverage in the divorce case.
What's wrong with our country in general, and politicians in particular, when low-class behavior like this is so commonplace?
Thursday Update: Paterson's assertion that he didn't use campaign cash to pay the expenses for his affairs wasn't true.
