Carolyn Maloney: Barrett Had "Best Story" on NY Senate Selection

Governor Paterson bailed on an interview today, complaining that he felt faint. Could be the burden of choosing Hillary Clinton's replacement -- which he said he'd do after tomorrow's inauguration -- is getting to him. Some politicians and press are beginning to tumble to what the Voice's Wayne Barrett figured out earlier -- that Paterson has motive to stroke Mayor Bloomberg by appointing his buddy Caroline Kennedy to the Senate. Senate hopeful Rep. Carolyn Maloney told the Post's Fred Dicker that Barrett's article was the "best story I've seen on the race." Dicker decribes Maloney as "most publicly adamant in saying the fix was in."
