Uber-popular Gov. Paterson is not only pushing ahead with his fat tax, he's also bringing the same-sex marriage bill back to the Legislature in next week's special session, which will deal with unresolved bills and other matters that were tabled in the midst of the summer coup. According to aides, the Gov. wants to force the Senate to deal with Senator Tom Duane's marriage-equality bill one way or the other—even though he can't force them to vote on it. Some think, considering his dismal ratings, this is a go-for-broke move that aides hope can help his ailing political fortunes.
