New York Governor David Paterson has been hit BIG by the state ethics commission for the 5 VIP World Series tickets last year.
The state’s top ethics watchdog slapped Gov. Paterson with a whopping $62,000 fine this morning for accepting free World Series tickets last year from the New York Yankees.
The Public Integrity Commission’s penalty – the first of its kind against a sitting governor – follows a months-long investigation into the Democratic governor’s freebie foul initially set off by a story in The Post.
“The moral and ethical tone of any organization is set at the top,” Commission Chairman Michael Cherkasky said. “Unfortunately the Governor set a totally inappropriate tone by his dishonest and unethical conduct. Such conduct cannot be tolerated by any New York State employee, particularly our Governor.”
Damn bruh, all the money you gettin paid by the state and you couldn’t spring for a couple of decent seats. Sheesh…
