Governor Paterson's best friend and aide, oops, now ex-aide was forced or should I say voluntarily turned himself in today. David Johnson has been accused of spousal abuse by his girlfriend, now ex-girlfriend Sherr-una Booker but that was quiet a while ago. She called 911 when he allegedly got physical and he fled the scene. Of course he denies everything but just for good measure Dave Paterson got involved, got his aides involved who did not know they were being used and manipulated by the accidental governor to in a quiet and gentle way encourage her to shut up and make like it never happened. How I see it is Dave Paterson being part of the "rich or connected, politicos, party -- above the law crowd" was able to remain in office even though many of his aides resigned disgusted with his inappropriate behavior and abuse of power.
In my opinion, Dave Patterson is guiltier than sin for ever so gently and politely intimidating Sherr-una, the victim of his long time friend in to silence. Judge Judy Kayne, sell-out, is part of Misogynist NYC which has too many female club members. I am stunned that Dave's good friend was even arrested and he and Dave have other scandals they have to wiggle out of including Yankee tickets and an alleged forged check by Johnson signing Dave Paterson's name. Dave Paterson is rumored have a problem with telling the truth and is alleged to have perjured himself over baseball tickets. The accidental governor is still in office and he does not belong there. New Yorkers have just set a very low bar for him and understand he is a screw up and talks the talk but his actions including his intimidation of Booker are proof he does not belong in office. It is New York so he has lots of company. Dave Paterson is truly handicapped "ethically" and he can't rise above it because he would have to get honest and take responsibility. Please see "Paterson Report by The New York Commission on Public Integrity".
Paterson really needs to spend the majority of his time with defense attorneys and he has good ones. He is embattled and Albany has still not balanced it's 9.2 billion dollar deficit due April 1 and it is almost Sept. which could mean an economic crisis something a kin to a terror attack in terms of hurting NY not that the polticos seem to care. It is like the State and City of NY are one collosal victim of spousal abuse by politicians ineffectual and unable to serve the public's best interest but excellent at serving their own.
Judge Kayne speaks double talk which could be simply translated she did not have the courage and brains and integrity to do her job and hold Patterson accountable. Please read this link for more on the story and at the bottom is another link for handling or mishandling of spousal abuse cases Dave is destined for disaster. Actually the two Daves are both destined for disaster.
