Judge blocks former MTA boss Richard Ravitch from becoming Gov. Paterson's lieutenant

ALBANY - A judge on Tuesday blocked Gov. Paterson's attempt to appoint former MTA Chairman Richard Ravitch lieutenant governor.

 

State Supreme Court Justice William LaMarca issued a temporary injunction blocking Ravitch from performing the duties of the office.

 

"The plaintiffs have established a likelihood of success on the merits for their claim that neither the constitution nor legislative enactment authorized the governor to make the appointment," said LaMarca, sitting in Nassau County.

 

He also ruled Senate President Malcolm Smith can take over as acting governor should something happen to Paterson.

 

The judge said there would be "irreparable harm" to state government should Ravitch's appointment later be nixed.

This Paterson guy is a complete joke, no one would have elected this bumbling idiotic fool, he was luck spitzer was ousted because no one knew who Paterson was before that.

 

 

The state laws need to be revised in case the Lt Gov job becomes vacant as what happened with Spitzer. Honestly i am serious who is really the #2 man in the state right now which i dont know the answer? Smith? Espada? Silver?:confused::(
