ALBANY – Gov. Paterson went into full doomsday mode Thursday, warning of chaos and anarchy in the streets if the government shuts down.

“It would create unimaginable chaos around the state and the greater metropolitan area,” Paterson said on WCBS Radio 880 this morning.

Paterson warned that the state would run out of money to pay its workforce – including troopers and correction officers – and eventually would not even be able to put gas in state vehicles.

Even stop-gap measures, such as the state Controller issuing IOUs, would work for only so long.

“Eventually the banks aren’t going to pay based on IOUs, and you now have no money to pay your police, you have no money to pay your correction officers, your firefighters, your emergency health care workers,” Paterson said.

On WBEN in Buffalo, Paterson went so far as to warn of runs on banks and financial institutions that have not been seen since the Great Depression.
