ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. David Paterson said Friday that he revealed his past marital affairs once he took office in part because he had heard that a rogue group of state police was investigating politicians.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

But on Friday, Paterson said he also knew about the supposed rogue troopers. Paterson has requested an investigation by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo on whether state police were keeping tabs on elected officials.

Hi all,

Just came across this, and it really annoyed me. First, this man admitted to breaking the law. Having an affair is breaking the law, You can actually be fined for that.

Second, Why is it any of HIS business that State Troopers are actually DO THERE JOBS, and policing not only the common man, but also the politicians? They have a chain of command, and I'm sure that the troopers commanders are aware of the troopers activities. If there not, and the troopers are doing it on there own time, then more kudos for them.

The are taking the inititive to investigate politicians. Politicians for the last 50 years in america have been known to be corrupted. WE ALL KNOW THIS!. So now a politician in the executive branch is trying to put presuure of the head of the judical in NEW YORK STATE, to terminate the investigations? Thats what will happen, if this is allowed. This is all a crok.

Cheers,

Camain

Leaving aside any personal views on people having affairs, cheating on their wives (or husbands) and children and the ensuing moral issues, there is also a much darker side to consider.
A prominent person, someone in a position of trust and holding power, may well find themselves open to blackmail if they have been playing away. This may be a simple case of a disgruntled lover wanting to make some cash or perhaps something far more sinister. How far would some of these politicians go to maintain their power and wealth, and possibly enhance it, after being caught in a honey trap, set by foreign or domestic spook agencies?

All they have to do is vote a certain way, turn a blind eye to a few issues and do as they are told and they keep their jobs....or the photos and recordings get leaked to the press and hit the internet, destroying their political aspirations and families.

I also have a hard time trusting anyone in a position of trust who has an extra marital affair. If they will cheat on their spouses and children in such an underhand manner, how can they be trusted not to do so with their employer, or even their country?

agreed, he admitted to cheating, that is breaking the law. what are the he is responsible to uphold the honor of his office, and uphold the best interest of the people. By him interferring in any investigations, simply by asking for an inquarry, he is violating his oath of office.

Cheers,

Camain
