Senate votes down ethics-bill override

The Senate defeated an effort to override Gov. Paterson's veto of the ethics bill this evening.
The override supporters got 35 votes to 26 against, but a two-thirds margin (42) was necessary for the measure to become law.
Four Republicans joined the Democrats to vote yes, but it wasn't enough to overcome opposition from most of the GOP members, some of whom said they hope to negotiate a tougher bill later this year.
