Gov. Paterson - P.O.S.

From the NYTimes:
"Last fall, a woman went to court in the Bronx to testify that she had been
violently assaulted by a top aide to Gov. David A. Paterson, and to seek a
protective order against the man."

"In the ensuing months, she returned to court twice to press her case,
complaining that the State Police had been harassing her to drop it. The State
Police, which had no jurisdiction in the matter, confirmed that the woman was
visited by a member of the governor's personal security detail."

"Then, just before she was due to return to court to seek a final
protective order, the woman got a phone call from the governor, according to her
lawyer. She failed to appear for her next hearing on Feb. 8, and as a result her
case was dismissed."

"The case involved David W. Johnson, 37, who had risen from working as Mr.
Paterson's driver and scheduler to serving in the most senior ranks of the
administration, but who also had a history of altercations with women."

"The alleged assault happened shortly before 8 p.m. on Halloween in the
apartment she had shared with Mr. Johnson and her 13-year old son for about four
years, according to police records."

"She told the police that Mr. Johnson, who is 6 foot 7, had choked her,
stripped her of much of her clothing, smashed her against a mirrored dresser and
taken two telephones from her to prevent her from calling for help, according to
police records."
So Paterson got involved and sent his armed posse to her house to "persuade" her to drop the case against his buddy. It's nice when government officials flaunt the law and use their position of authority to threaten and harass people. What could go wrong with that? You know what else is nice, hiring and promoting your friends, to positions in government. Like McGreevy hiring his boyfriend to be in charge of security and paying him 100k+. Got to love Big Brother and all his little flunkies.

Down with Big Brother!
