Espada to Paterson: 'Do What Pedro Does'

Great stuff here from our upstate friends at the Albany Times-Union who spoke with a handful of Bronx lawmakers after they had just met with troubled and under-the-microscope Gov. David Paterson. (He's being investigated after it was discovered he contacted the a Bronx woman who had filed domestic violence charges against one of his top aides.)

I'll just lay out a couple of highlights. State Senators Pedro Espada, Jr., Ruben Diaz, Sr., Assemblyman Peter Rivera and Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo, who have all been linked to investigations in the past (some are ongoing), all expressed their support for the governor, basically saying he should stay until the budget gets done.

The best quote is from Espada. When asked by reporter Jimmy Vielkind what advice he gave Paterson, Espada said: “Do what Pedro does: report to work, don’t listen to and read everything that’s said about you, stay compartmentalized, stay focused on the job."
