ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Now those were expensive seats.
Former New York Gov. David Paterson has paid $62,124 to settle his fine from the state ethics board over free Yankees tickets he obtained for the 2009 World Series.
The board's spokesman, Walter Ayres, confirms to The Associated Press that the check was received Thursday.
The commission found Paterson contradicted his staff, the Yankees and common sense when he falsely claimed he always intended to pay for five tickets to the first game of the 2009 World Series at Yankee Stadium.
Paterson performed no ceremonial function at the game he attended with his son, his son's friend, and two staff members.
