Empty-Headed Dave Strikes Again

More dysfunction from empty-headed Dave. Back in 2003, the then Senator Paterson fired his white photographer to hire a black photographer.

The state has secretly settled an embarrassing federal racial-discrimination lawsuit, The Post has learned. The suit accused Paterson, back when he was Senate minority leader in 2003, of firing a white Senate photographer in order to replace him with an African-American.

Reportedly, it wouldn't have looked good for our half-wit Governor if the case went to trial. The Senate was represented by the Attorney General and in this instance, normally out spoken Andrew Cuomo had no comment.

Just more of the same from our very own Dysfunctional Dave.

In the lawsuit, Maioriello [the photog] claimed he was told by John McPadden, then Paterson's chief of staff, that he was being fired because a number of minority senators wanted to replace him with "a minority photographer, a black photographer."

He said he was also told, "You got to remember who Sen. Paterson is. Sen. Paterson is black."

Governor Paterson later claimed in a deposition that, "he didn't see well enough to have fired Maioriello because of his race."

Ha Ha Dave, you're funny, a regular Henny Youngman.

UPDATE: Apparently Dysfunction Dave has been caught in a lie. Andrew Cuomo never told him to settle, and idiot Malcolm Smith is backing him up. That's 1.5 brain cells vs. .5 brain cell. Dave's on the losing side again.
