Latino Legislators Urge Delayed Action On N.Y. Gov.

Thursday, 04 Mar 2010 06:45 PM


A Latino Democratic state senator is urging black leaders to delay any action to push embattled New York Gov. David Paterson to resign.

State Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. of the Bronx says he wants the Rev. Al Sharpton and others attending Thursday night's meeting in Harlem to wait to act until the end of a state investigation into a domestic violence scandal surrounding a governor's aide. Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is investigating whether Paterson illegally contacted a woman who had accused the aide of roughing her up on Halloween.

Diaz says Latino legislators are united against immediate action against Paterson.

Sen. Bill Perkins of Harlem says the group of black leaders is taking into account Diaz's comments and the surprise resignation of Paterson's communications director Thursday afternoon.
