New York (CNN) – New York's Commission on Public Integrity is charging Gov. David Paterson with an ethics violation for accepting free tickets to last year's World Series, a commission spokesman said Wednesday.
Walter Ayres said that the commission found that Paterson violated the state's ban on gifts for public officials in accepting the tickets.
Paterson, who announced last week that he would not run for election to a full term, has faced controversy since news reports emerged charging that his aide was involved in a domestic violence incident with a woman and that state police later allegedly pressured her to keep quiet.
Paterson has asked New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, a possible contender for the governor's office, to investigate the matter.
Ethics?! As in obstruction of justice for his homie the woman beater? When do these guys stop getting breaks because of their cultural deprivation?
Why am I not surprised. Typical Democrat.
Danm and he could not even see the game.
Now that is some greedy corruption.
Governor Patterson is presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, if he is proven guilty on this and other charges, he should resign!!
Wow, how many times has this guy been run over by a bus in a week? What is next? And who is the Lt. Governor here in NYS? The democrats are not only eating their own; they are fighting over who is going to pick the bones.

if we start doing like china does i bet they make sure their taxes are paid and their staff know the rules

Okay what am I missing here? Ethics violation over tickets to the World Series? Really?
