Oswego, New York – Questions have been raised over Governor David Paterson's hotel spending.
Paterson reportedly spent more than $2,000 on hotel rooms in Albany since becoming Lieutenant Governor, even though he owns a home 20 minutes outside the capitol. The rooms were paid for with a state issued credit card.
Paterson says he needed to be close to the capitol to attend early morning meetings with then Governor Spitzer.
