ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. David Paterson is getting little support from Albany's other top Democrats as he fights what he calls attacks on his character.

Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is refusing to comment Tuesday on reports in blogs and news accounts of womanizing and drug use by the governor. Cuomo's office also won't comment on whether he supports Paterson.

Many Democrats have voiced wishes that Cuomo run for governor instead of Paterson, who took the post upon the resignation of Eliot Spitzer.

Republican candidate Rick Lazio says the rumors create a toxic atmosphere that block legislative action. He says no public official should face such unconfirmed personal attacks.

Paterson referred to the attacks Monday in an Associated Press interview as false, callous and sleazy.
