Another Resignation Amid Scandal

Another top official in New York State government is resigning amid the domestic violence scandal in Albany.

New York State Police Superintendent Harry Corbitt is expected to resign Wednesday.

Corbitt is the second state law enforcement official to leave after the latest scandal. Corbitt has acknowledged that a police official had contact with a woman who had accused a top aide to Governor David Paterson of roughing her up. After that, the woman dropped the case.

Corbitt's boss, Deputy Secretary for Public Safety Denise O'Donnell, resigned last week. She said direct contact by the governor and troopers with the woman was unacceptable.
