“I think we have a marriage like many Americans, maybe even like many of you,” the governor told reporters. “Elected officials are really just reflections of the people we represent.” – David Paterson, the new New York governor that just replaced Eliot Spitzer (who resigned after his prostitution scandal surfaced). I feel offended that David Paterson would try to spin his revelation of past affairs into a reflection of what people’s marriages may or may not be like.
I found this amusing:
“Paterson and the other woman sometimes stayed at a Days Inn on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the governor said, adding that his Albany staff sometimes stayed there as well when they were in the city.” – Not a far cry from the Hotel 81’s here in Singapore. :)
