Driving Mr. Pataki

New York's new governor, Eliot Spitzer, has approved round-the-clock security for his predecessor, George Pataki. The Post estimates this could cost taxpayers $20,000 per week or more.

This is a very odd development, coming on the heels of Alan Hevesi's resignation (due to his utilizing state employees to chauffeur his wife). Of course Governor Pataki is not receiving perks simply because of marriage. Still, previous outgoing Governor Mario Cuomo received no such benefit.
