Congratulations to outgoing Governor David Paterson - his law ensuring that working people will be guaranteed their pay is a step in the right direction. I was appalled when I heard that there was opposition from some, stating that this measure would impede their ability "to do business".
If one performs a job function, one should be compensated. Sounds cut-and-dried to me.
Much has been made of the recommendation from the Commission on Public Integrity and it’s suggestion that outgoing governor David Paterson should pay up to a 93,000 fine for World Series NY Yankee tickets from last year.
The issue is whether Mr. Paterson violated ethics laws by having aides solicit the five tickets, with a value of $425 each.
