No not Eliot Spitzer, his replacement Gov. David Paterson. Hoping to preemptively put to bed rumors floating around the statehouse in Albany, Gov. Paterson and his wife confessed their past marital infidelities to The New York Daily News:
In a stunning revelation, both Paterson, 53, and his wife, Michelle, 46, acknowledged in a joint interview they each had intimate relationships with others during a rocky period in their marriage several years ago.
In the course of several interviews in the past few days, Paterson said he maintained a relationship for two or three years with “a woman other than my wife,” beginning in 1999.
As part of that relationship, Paterson said, he and the other woman sometimes stayed at an upper West Side hotel – the Days Inn at Broadway and W. 94th St.
The new governor sure has a soft spot for that Days Inn. As part of his marriage counseling he and his wife repaired to that same Days Inn to introduce “new and exciting things” into their relationship.
