Just a week after State Police Superintendent Harry Corbitt resigned amid charges Gov. Paterson used state troopers to intimidate a woman involved in a domestic violence case with a top aide, the man appointed to the position has stepped down. In a letter to the governor First Deputy Supt. Pedro Perez said “that continuing in my position as acting superintendent may be an obstacle to progress of the New York State Police, an agency I love.’’ It's still unclear whether Perez, who the Post says is currently under investigation by Attorney General Cuomo, resigned fearing the consequences of his own role in the scandal, or if working for Gov. Paterson is just that bad.
