Pony Party, a fun fact

If Eliot Spitzer resigns his governorship, David Paterson will take his place.  

If David Paterson becomes governor of New York, he will be the first african american governor for that state, as well as the first blind governor in America.  Wow.

Paterson, 53, currently serving as Spitzer’s deputy in the role of lieutenant governor of New York, was born in New York City and went on to study law before joining the prosecutor’s office in the borough of Queens.

In 1985 he was elected to represent Harlem in New York’s state senate, working his way up to minority leader in 2002, where he has introduced legislation on stem cell research, alternative energy and domestic violence.

The goings on in NY have very little effect on my life…but having a blind african american as governor as one of the country’s most prominent states would be amazing, imo…
