DescriptionSen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., today called for New York Gov. David Paterson to resign if allegations are true that he directed aides to intervene in a domestic-violence case.

In an interview with New York1, Gillibrand said if "all the allegations of the abuse of power are true, then the governor will be unable to govern, and he will have to step down."

Gillibrand's move marks a dramatic break with Paterson, a political patron who appointed her to the U.S. Senate last year.
