"Ruinous Scandal" Rumored About To Explode For NY Gov. David Paterson

Reliable political reporter Elizabeth Benjamin reports at the NY Daily News that a potentially career-ending personal scandal will shortly be divulged about NY Gov. David Paterson. Recent claims have been made that state troopers walked in on Paterson and an unidentified woman in a utility closet at the executive mansion. According to Gothamist, the big story (which may or may not be related to the trooper story) is to come from the New York Times.
The rumor mill is churning right now about a "big, damaging" New York Times "bombshell" story that supposedly features some ruinous dirt about the personal life of Governor David Paterson. Elizabeth Benjamin at the Daily News hears it "will be far worse than his acknowledged extramarital affair with a former state employee." Remember when you first heard about Eliot Spitzer's involvement with prostitutes, and everyone was like, "Okay, so who the hell is David Paterson?" Well, let's get to know current Lieutenant Governor Richard Ravitch!
As mentioned above, Paterson has freely admitted that he and his wife have been non-monogamous in the past, a revelation that most of New York met with a shrug. As documented here on this blog many times, Gov. Paterson has been an actual fierce advocate for gay New Yorkers since taking over for the disgraced Eliot Spitzer. This doesn't look good.
