Gov hit on Yanks tix

The Times reports that the New York State Commission on Public Integrity released a report involving Gov. Paterson’s attendance at a Yankees Stadium World Series game.

In addition to violating the state’s ban on gifts to public officials, Mr. Paterson falsely testified under oath that he had intended to pay for the tickets for his son and his son’s friend, according to the commission. Mr. Paterson had never intended to pay for the tickets, the commission determined, and did so only after inquiries from the news media, after which he submitted a backdated check as payment.

The report is available here.
