David Paterson, a legally blind former legislator and New York’s lieutenant governor since 2007, is set to become the state’s first African-American governor once that shady prostitute purchasing Eliot Spitzer resigns from office:

The New York governor hired a prostitute in Washington on Feb. 13 and paid her $4,300. Mr. Spitzer is likely to resign, perhaps as early as today, according to a person close to him, which would effectively end his political career just 16 months after he was elected New York’s governor by a wide margin. “I have disappointed and failed to live up to the standard I expected of myself,” he said, with his wife at his side. “I must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family.”

Mr. Spitzer has been a strong backer of Hillary Clinton and was mentioned as a possible cabinet member if she were elected president. Sen. Clinton declined to comment on the scandal. “I obviously send my best wishes to the governor and his family.”

SMH at those shady characters like Spitzer and Clinton sticking together. Oh well, his time is up. What the hell is the Governor of New York doing paying for some 4K tail?
