NY Democrat Gov. David Paterson is history. He has dropped his re-election bid in the aftermath of several ethics scandals, but will finish out his term. Here’s the NYTimes story that was the catalyst for today’s coming announcement. a brief history. Here’s the NYPost story on the withdrawal this morning.
And here’s the NY Daily News:

Embattled Gov. Paterson has pulled the plug on his election bid, a source close to the governor said Friday.

Paterson will announce the decision later Friday.

Paterson has been under fire for having contacted a woman who accused one of his top aides of domestic violence.

The source said the governor has agreed not to seek election, but he will not resign – opting to serve out the remainder of his term.

The decision clears the way for Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, who is the favorite of many Democrats, to seek the nomination unimpeded.

Call it Patrick Gaspard’s revenge. Recall how Obama’s top White House domestic policy aide — the ACORN/WFP/SEIU “air traffic controller” — intervened in NY-23, has kept his till in the NY politics pot, and made the unpopular Paterson a target to pave the path for Cuomo.

Behold the persuasion of power.
