New York (CNN) - A New York state ethics board has fined Gov. David A. Paterson $62,125 for "soliciting, accepting and receiving" five free World Series tickets from the New York Yankees in 2009.
Patterson said he had "always intended to pay for the tickets," a claim later found to be false, according to a written statement Monday from the state's Commission on Public Integrity.
Yet ANOTHER CORRUPT DemocRAT... Why ANYONE would support or vote for these corrupt lefties is a mystery. Just stupid I guess.
Bankers on Wall Street destroy the global economy through deceptive practices, and this is the kind of stuff we see gone after? Seriously? Will we ever see Bush & Co. prosecuted for war crimes? Will we ever see anyone other than Bernie Maddoff in prison because of rampant unregulated greed, while the SEC looks the other way, on Wall Street? No. We see a governor fined for accepting world series tickets. Lovely.
