The former State Senate majority leader is in for a world of hurt.
Late last night, somewhere in Albany, someone caught a tiger by the toe. It hollered, and he let him go.
But it was only a brief moment of state unity, alas.
The tens of thousands of jobless New Yorkers trying to call or log in forced it to shut down.
But he is "still looking"!
'But I won't vote with the Democrats.'
His budget-cut proposals came out today, and everyone is sharpening their knives — for him.
Man, all the Irish guys are going these days, huh?
The Washington 'Post' picks him as the odds-on favorite to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate. It's time for a walk down memory lane...
Smack in the middle of the state budget crisis, the guv dropped almost $40K on Turkish rugs. But maybe that's okay?
Dean Skelos, David Paterson, and Sheldon Silver laughed it up in Albany yesterday.
The New York lawyer will now be a powerful adviser to the governor.
Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos tries to kill Paterson's budget cuts with an early vote, leaving the governor scrambling.
As State Senate Republicans hold up budget talks, Paterson gives an indication of who might replace Hillary Clinton if she is appointed Secretary of State.

Democrats are divided over whether Paterson's wait-and-see-the-proposals approach is the best way to tackle the budget gap.
Mr. Paterson is going to Washington. Meanwhile, on the home front, there's already a game of chicken going on between him and the legislature over who will cut first.
Because of his prescient attempts to stave off even worse budget deficits, Paterson is popular in New York City and with conservatives upstate.
