NY gov says campaign aide leaked Kennedy dirt

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. David Paterson says a campaign staffer leaked unsubstantiated claims to the press that Caroline Kennedy “wasn’t ready for prime time” and faced possible tax, nanny and marital problems.

The Democratic governor blamed the mess on a consultant but didn’t name the staffer. He says he’ll keep the consultant on his campaign payroll.

Paterson has insisted he had nothing to do with the leaks. The dirt was fed to reporters by a person close to Paterson under condition of anonymity.

The claims surfaced just after Kennedy abruptly withdrew from Paterson’s secretive selection process to fill Hillary Rodham Clinton’s New York Senate seat.

Gov. David Paterson might be blind but he can sure ‘see’ the need to issue excuses I believe. I don’t know what they call it in New York, but here in Texas it’s called covering your ass. Of course Paterson had nothing to do with the leaks, someone will surely take a fall for him, even if he did let the cat out of the bag. That’s politics.

I don’t know if Princess Caroline was having marital trouble or not, in fact, I don’t care if she was or wasn’t, that’s none of my business, either way. If she is having tax problems, well, welcome to the Obama administration, that seems to be the order of the day of late. A Senator with tax problems, or any other far left Dem with tax problems is an immediate candidate for the Cabinet it appears.

Caroline Kennedy was ‘not ready for prime time’? I think the writer of the original story has a flair for understatement. Caroline Kennedy has nothing more than a great political name. Not appointing her to the Senate was likely one of the best moves Paterson could have made.

I suppose Paterson and Company are concerned that they may be sued by the Kennedy Klan for allowing the truth to come out concerning poor little Caroline. Personally, I am glad they did let this all come out, I am glad she was shown to be a troubled possibility. The United States has more than enough problems on it’s hands right now, we don’t need a troubled Senator, new or well seasoned, sitting in the Senate. The American people need workers, not social butterflies that have never held a real job.

I’m just tremendously happy that it was NOT Caroline Kennedy that was sent to Washington, D.D. to replace Hillary.

    What don’t make sense is that Patterson is the one who wanted Kennedy in the first place and it was looking like a shoe-in for her. People in Upstate NY were dead set against her though as they wanted someone from the Upstate area to represent NY. The one Patterson did finally appoint is apparently half way decent for a Democrat. At least she has a good rating by the NRA. Carolyn Kennedy was dumber than a box of rocks.

    ‘Princess Caroline’ is just another one of the ‘many tax cheaters’ that the Dem’s seem to spawn in large numbers. Rule of thumb for the ‘Limo Liberals’, “Paying taxes is patriotic. That’s why we ‘Limo Liberals’ don’t pay’m.”
