Time Will Tell If David Paterson Resigns, But Not Yet

He is still New York's governor as of Friday, he tells reporters


When asked on Thursday afternoon if he would still be leading New York on Friday, embattled Governor David Paterson told a group of reporters, "Yes." He did not answer a follow-up question as to whether he would be governor next week. See the video from NBC New York below:

Meanwhile, a group of black leaders organized by Rev. Al Sharpton met at Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem, reportedly to discuss whether they should ask the scandal-plagued governor to resign. They haven't released a statement yet. This comes just five days after the same group met and decided to stick by Paterson.
