Quick Hits: Gov. Paterson to Resign?

Rumors swirl as Paterson meets with Democratic officials about his political future


What's going on with New York governor David Paterson?

First, Business Insider reported that the governor would resign today following a New York Times bombshell according to a single unnamed source. This bombshell may have to do with rumors of Gov. Paterson's extracurricular activities involving women who are not his wife. Now, they're saying this won't happen.

What's definitely happening is Gov. Paterson is meeting today with Dem officials to discuss his political future, a future which may include resignation--for what we don't yet know--or to announce he won't be running for re-election.

So, to recap, something may or may not happen with Gov. David Paterson soon. The end.
