NY state has just sworn in its first black governor David Paterson. As what has been widely covered in media outlets across the world, he assumed power after the resignation of disgraced governor Eliot Spitzer. Spitzer was forced to step down amid allegations of using a high priced call girl service over the past decade. Gov. Paterson has made history on two fronts, being legally blind and the first African American governor in NY. Congrats to our new gov and good luck in your new role as head of NY State.
