Gov. Paterson has privately accused Attorney General Andrew Cuomo -- his would-be replacement -- of "wiring up" President Obama's unprecedented attempt to get him out of office next year, The Post has learned.

Paterson made the charge to several associates in recent days and "definitely believes Andrew Cuomo wired this up, set this whole thing in motion," said a well-known Democrat with strong Washington connections.
