(Newser) – Less than 2 years after extramarital indiscretions cost Eliot Spitzer the job, a sex scandal is about to chase his successor as New York governor out of office. Media circles have been abuzz with reports that the New York Times is working on an exposé involving Paterson's personal life and the hammer is about to come down, a source tells Business Insider.

The Times story—presumably quite the bombshell, given that on Paterson's second day as governor, he acknowledged cheating on his wife—will probably appear tomorrow. Daily News columnist Elizabeth Benjamin reported last week it "will be far worse" than the revelation that followed Paterson's swearing-in.
