Did He Keep His Socks On?

25 Feb

Looks like Governor Paterson has his own State Police/influence issue.

Evidently, an aide of his beat up a woman, and the victim complained in court that members of the governor’s state police detail had been pressuring her to drop the charges.

She told the police that Mr. Johnson, who is 6-foot-7, had choked her, stripped her of much of her clothing, smashed her against a mirrored dresser and taken two telephones from her to prevent her from calling for help, according to police records.

The woman was twice granted a temporary order of protection against Mr. Johnson, according to the proceedings in Family Court in the Bronx.

“I’m scared he’s going to come back,” she said, according to the proceedings, in which a court referee at the initial hearing noted bruises on the woman’s arm.

Some Democrats are asking Paterson to suspend his campaign or even resign. Denise O’Donnell, whose office oversees the State Police, resigned today in outrage over the imbroglio.

New York and her politicians never disappoint to disappoint.
