A special investigation concludes New York Gov. David Paterson's testimony about his plans to pay for World Series tickets last year was "inaccurate and misleading" and warrants consideration of criminal charges by a prosecutor.

In a report Thursday, former state Chief Judge Judith Kaye notes four of five tickets to the World Series opening game between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies were paid for later. She says there's a question whether Paterson gave "intentionally false testimony" to the State Public Integrity Commission about having written an $850 check in advance for two tickets.

Albany County District Attorney David Soares is reviewing the case.

Paterson denies wrongdoing. He eventually paid for two tickets and staff members paid for two. He maintains going to the game was part of a ceremonial public duty that entitled him to a ticket.
