The New York Post reports:
When Eliot Spitzer’s top aides were mulling David Paterson as a potential running mate in the winter of 2005, two people who knew him cautioned that the Albany veteran was a “hard partier.”
They were referring to Paterson’s extramarital dalliances, past drug use and penchant for late-night clubbing. But Spitzer’s people didn’t get the message.
They didn’t get the message? Or given candidate Spitzer’s own proclivities, maybe they were impressed.
