ALBANY, N.Y.  -- New York Gov. David Paterson has met privately with key Democratic leaders about his re-election plans even as questions continue to swirl around the state capitol about a variety of unproven accusations involving the Democratic governor's personal conduct.

Paterson campaign spokesman Richard Fife says the weekend calls had nothing to do with the accusations, but were "routine re-election campaign calls." 

A Democrat close to the situation, though, says the meetings included discussions about whether Paterson would resign or announce he will not run.

The Democrat spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
