Kooky Carl campaigns from the fringe
Try as I might, NMA, I can’t seem to quit you…
New York Tea Party candidate Carl Paladino is a real estate mogul with a colorful past. The Republican gubernatorial candidate said outgoing New York governor David Paterson was corrupt because he cheated on his wife. News later emerged that Paladino fathered a child out of wedlock.
When confronted by a reporter who demanded that Paladino provide evidence to buck up his claim that his Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo also cheated on his wife, Paladino said, “I’ll take you out, buddy.”
In a campaign video Paladino said he’s angry the media doesn’t ask questions about his opponent’s private life. He noted that Cuomo’s sexual “prowess is legendary.”
He also criticized Cuomo attending a gay pride parade with his daughters. Paladino said he doesn’t want own his children to be “brainwashed” into becoming gay.
