NEW YORK (AP) _ A newspaper is reporting that New York's new governor has admitted he and his wife Michelle had affairs during a rough patch in their marriage several years ago.

David Paterson, who was sworn into office Monday, told the Daily News that he maintained a relationship with another woman from 1999
until 2001. He and his wife eventually sought counseling and repaired their relationship.

The newspaper reports that the couple agreed to speak publicly about their marriage in response to rumors about Paterson's personal life that have been swirling in Albany since Eliot Spitzer resigned in a prostitution scandal that broke last week.
