State Democratic Committee Chairman and former Gov. David Paterson attempts to provide cover for Gov. Andrew Cuomo's refusal to debate his primary opponent Zephyr Teachout by castigating her for appearing in Thursday morning's WNYC debate between her and Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino. Paterson's statement was released just as that session, moderated by Brian Lehrer, was beginning: Zephyr Teachout claims to be a progressive but today will be her second campaign event alongside the ultraconservative Republican nominee.
