Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says Governor David Paterson should resign if a damaging new report about his administration is true.

Gillibrand was appointed a little more than a year ago by Paterson to be New York’s junior senator.

But, with mounting allegations against her political patron, Gillibrand is talking tough.

Speaking with NY1 political reporter Michael Scotto on “Inside City Hall,” the senator says that while it’s too early for Paterson to resign, the governor will need to step aside if he did indeed order aides to intervene in a domestic abuse case.

"The allegations are very, very serious,” she said. “Attorney General [Andrew] Cuomo is going to run a thorough investigation. I expect everyone in the administration to cooperate fully with that investigation. But if at the end of the day, if all of the allegations of the abuse of power are true, then the governor will be unable to govern and he will have to step down."

The complete interview, in which Gillibrand reacts to Harold Ford Jr.’s decision not to challenge her in a Democratic primary, will air tonight on “Inside City Hall” at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
