Why is Gov. Paterson Partying at a Manhattan Nightclub at 1am on a School Night?

Our old friend Tionna Smalls just messaged us to say that she's partying at Taj on West 21st along with the Governor of New York, about whom Tionna says, "He need to get his ass home."

Yes, Paterson is right now throwing down at Taj in Chelsea. When asked if there was a special event going on at the club tonight, perhaps a fundraiser or something, Tionna said no and that it's just Taj's regular ole Wednesday night party.

Its that event that goes down every wednesday...Its not big enough for the Governor to go through and be there. He need to get his ass home...Then they wonder why people dont want black people in the office? I dont understand this at all.

Tionna then forwarded us the text of the party invite sent out by the club promoter:

It's a big night at "Cocktails w Jessica!"
RHONDA COWAN is having her
2nd Annual "Birthday Cocktails"
VH1 Soul's BREEZE is having
"Farewell Cocktails"
& Badboy's own DONTAY THOMPSON is having "Birthday Cocktails"
Music by Deejay Logic &
special guest FUNKMASTER FLEX!

Ciroc in the building

Well, in Paterson's defense, Funkmaster Flex is in the house. Really, who could possibly resist that?

And thanks for the tip Tionna! All of us at Gawker are excited for your upcoming VH1 reality show with Chilli from TLC. You go girl! We love you.
