    American Renaissance News: Paterson Burned by a Racial 'Fire'

    Fredric U. Dicker, New York Post, May 1, 2009

    Gov. Paterson, who raised state taxes by $8 billion last month, just cost state taxpayers $300,000 more.

    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.

    The lawsuit had been scheduled to go to trial in federal court Monday in Syracuse, with Paterson, the state’s first black governor, as a key witness. The case was settled earlier in the week, although a few glitches delayed the final deal until yesterday, legislative sources said.

    The settlement ends a civil-rights action first filed in 2005 by Joseph Maioriello, 56, of Schenectady, a 26-year Senate employee who originally sought $1.5 million.
