All too often we hear of political cover-ups especially if the allegations are against high-ranking political officials. However, Gov. David Paterson has suspended one of his top aides immediately for suspected domestic violence.

Paterson suspended aide David Johnson and has requested that the Attorney General Andrew Cuomo investigate whether state police tried to “improperly influence” a woman the aide reportedly attacked. Sounds like a Hollywood movie?

Me, I am undecided for now.
