At a Tuesday press conference, New York Governor David Paterson sharply repudiated
rumors that he'll resign from office. "The only way I'm not going to be governor next year is at the ballot
box and the only way that I'll be leaving office before is in a box" Paterson said. Many have speculated
that a soon-to-be-published New York Times story will reveal a damaging
personal scandal. However, he reaffirmed his commitment to running for
reelection "The more frustrated I get, the more I know I am going to be
running," he said.
