Tea Parties? Racism? No Way!
The Tea Party-endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate for New York, Carl Paladino, has been sending out emails that you will not freaking believe.
wnymedia.net has an exposé of Paladino’s work, and be aware — it’s not work-safe. It’s actually not even human-safe, and I mean that literally. NY Gubernatorial Candidate Carl Paladino’s Racist and Sexist Email History.

(Hat tip: Balloon Juice, whose DougJ also reports that Paladino is not exactly a fringe candidate.)
TPM has a statement from Paladino’s campaign manager:
Paladino’s campaign manager, Michael Caputo, would not comment on specific emails, but acknowledged to TPMmuckraker that Paladino had sent emails that were “off-color” and “politically incorrect,” saying that few such emails represented the candidate’s own opinion. Caputo accused Democrats of wanting to change the subject from substantive issues to “having sex with horses.”
