Paterson not looking for reelection; will remain governor

Funny story written by Ed E. Druckman

Saturday, 27 February 2010

(Albany-NY) Embattled New York Governor David Paterson is expected to announce that he won't seek reelection, but will remain as governor for the rest of the year.

This is due to a "New York Times" story reporting that the governor may have intervened in a domestic assault case involving a top aide.

Even though Paterson has asked the New York State Attorney General's Office to conduct an investigation into the matter, sentiment is against him by both his party and the press.

Paterson's reversal to run came less than a week after his firm statement that he would run and win.

A source close to Paterson revealed that he is in discussions with the Obama administration for a possible position.

The Obama White House has had an eye on Paterson for some time since "we firmly commit to things and then change our minds all the time."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
