Paterson (D) told Rep. Peter King (R) he will meet "later this week" with the imam and developer of the proposed mosque to discuss the possibility of building in an "alternate location," the congressman said in an interview. King, an outspoken opponent of placing the mosque and Islamic cultural center so close to where terrorists attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, said Paterson told him about the meeting in a phone call Tuesday morning.

In a statement, however, developers of the Islamic complex denied that they had agreed to meet with Paterson. "To the best of our knowledge, a meeting has not been scheduled," read the statement. "We appreciate the Governor's interest as we continue to have conversations with many officials."

You know we DO have bigger things to worry about in Albany. How about oh I dont know the ****ing massive amounts of debt that the state is in!

That's what we get for electing a freedom-hating right-wing racist as governor.

Kind of makes you wonder what real issues are happening and getting ignored for this non-story of lets blame all muslims for 9-11 and whine about them building near ground zero.

Well the state is in a **** ton of debt for one.

Funny that Patterson may be the politician with the most clear vision on this whole issue.

That is kind of ironic now that you mention it. Still, I'm NOT letting him drive MY car.
