  • Carl Paladino: The street fighter

    Buffalo News ^ | February 1, 2014 | Sandra Tan
    It’s easy to fall into a trap with Carl Paladino, reducing the brash developer’s intensity and inflammatory sound bites to a highlight reel of political incorrectness. But there’s more to the bomb-thrower who has upended the status quo on the Buffalo Board of Education. A fuller description paints a man who worked as a trash collector to pay for college, who lost his own son but is determined to keep thousands of other kids from being forsaken by a broken school system. Paladino is a man of contradictions – as happy to tear down the Buffalo schools superintendent as he...

    New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino (R) walked out on a local television interview in Plattsburgh, New York on Friday evening after the anchor asked him whether his comments about Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand (D) were sexist. Paladino had called New York’s junior Senator “[Schumer's] little girl” on Thursday, in reference to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D). When asked if he regretted the comments or thought they were sexist, Paladino said, “No, I don’t. I was referring to the fact that Miss Gillbrand seems to vote exactly as Mr. Schumer directs her to. She doesn’t show any mind of her own in...

    Earlier this week, New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino (R) called Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) a “little girl” for voting similar to her colleague Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). When a reporter on Friday tried to ask him if he regrets those comments, Paladino wasn’t having any of it. “Are we going to talk issues or am I leaving you right now?” Paladino said during an interview with WCAX-TV. After the interviewer kept pushing the issue, Paladanio ripped off his earpiece and microphone and stormed off:

    NY Times ^ | October 28, 2010 | MICHAEL BARBARO and DAVID W. CHEN
    There he goes again. Carl P. Paladino, the Republican candidate for governor, promised he would be politically incorrect. He wasn’t kidding. On Thursday, during a rally in Hicksville, N.Y., he called the state’s junior United States senator, Kirsten E. Gillibrand, “Schumer’s little girl.” It was an apparent reference to Ms. Gillibrand’s close relationship with Senator Charles E. Schumer, but Mr. Paladino’s dismissive description of the only woman to hold statewide elected office in New York jolted the political world. His comments were reported on the Web site of Newsday and by NY1. Mr. Paladino, a businessman from Buffalo, has previously...

    Carl Paladino will be launching this week the final push of his campaign for governor, and The New York Sun is happy to extend its endorsement. We understand the Republican nominee is being set down as “Crazy” Carl by, among others, the same newspapers who, while saying they were for tax cuts and reform in Albany, endorsed Eliot Spitzer. Much has been made by Mr. Paladino’s opponents of emails he has sent or forwarded that contain off-color and racialist attempts at humor. They are as offensive to us as to anyone else. They remind us, however, of nothing so much...

I just found out: Cuomo refuses to say if he gave former comptroller Alan Hevesi jail time for taking a million$$ in bribes. Law Journal wrote he cut the deal with Hevesi to get a plea last week. But Andy won't tell. Now the Law Journal changed their story online - strange. Lucky we scanned the original article: http://paladinoforthepeople.com/hevesi_lawjournal.php What's the deal, Andy? Voters want to know did you and Hevesi cut a another deal for no jail...

    Hofstra University will host the first gubernatorial debate between GOP candidate Carl Paladino, Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo and five third-party candidates on Monday, Oct. 18. All seven candidates said they plan to attend, including Anti-Prohibition Party candidate Kristin Davis, Freedom Party candidate Charles Barron, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins, Libertarian Party candidate Warren Redlich and Jimmy McMillan of the Rent is too Damn High Party. The debate comes after Paladino accused Cuomo of avoiding a debate. It also comes two years after the university hosted the third and final Presidential debate in 2008. “This election is a critical one for...

From the Paladino campaign, here's the text of a statement released by and attributed to campaign manager Michael Caputo Thursday.

    he New York Post has endorsed Democrat Andrew Cuomo for governor, saying it believes he has the "vision to blaze a path to reform.'' The endorsement comes hours before a seven-way debate in the contentious race to replace Gov. David Paterson in Albany. The newspaper on Monday said it based its endorsement for Cuomo "in the hope, if not necessarily the full expectation'' that Cuomo would become the strong leader that New York state needs. But the Post said it isn't clear whether anyone currently running for the state's highest office "is fully up to the task.'' It called Cuomo's...

    [...] I’ve since been told the case hasn’t yet been decided, and won’t be until after Nov. 2. Instead, the judge declined to give the WFP the injunction it sought. The party is considering an appeal. This is almost of bad as a loss, since the current policy is detrimental to the minor parties. As things stand, voters who select the same candidate on two different lines on the paper ballots used by the new voting machine system will see their vote counted for the first party that appears on the ballot. That is, of course, very bad for the...

Children being raised by same-sex couples or by differently-sexed couples? Clearly, the answer is by a differently-sexed couple...

    With just eighteen days remaining in what has been by far the most bizarre yet entertaining election for Governor of New York in memory, the Republican-Conservative candidate -- Carl Paladino, a highly successful Buffalo businessman and attorney -- has pretty much blown it by allowing himself to be cast in the role of a nutjob. Cast in the role of hero and savior is the Democratic Working Families Party (read: ACORN front) candidate, state attorney general Andrew Cuomo. It did not have to be like this. It almost wasn't. Why, pray tell, would any voter in his right mind think...

On Sunday, in a discussion of gay marriage at a meeting with Brooklyn Hasidic Jewish leaders, Paladino said children were being "brainwashed" into accepting homosexuality as "valid."

    Republican candidate for governor Carl P. Paladino told a gathering in Williamsburg Sunday that children should not be “brainwashed” into thinking that homosexuality is acceptable, and criticized his opponent, Democrat Andrew M. Cuomo, for marching in a gay pride parade earlier this year. Addressing Orthodox Jewish leaders, in Williamsburg, Mr. Paladino described his opposition to same-sex marriage. “That’s not how God created us,” he said, reading from a prepared address. "I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into...

    Carl Paladino is a Republican in a heavily Democratic state, and he trails political scion Andrew Cuomo in polls. But his bluster and ferocity have gotten attention — and cut into Cuomo's lead. Reporting from New York Carl Paladino, a self-made multimillionaire who wants to be governor of New York, has set up shop in the lobby of a low-budget hotel in midtown Manhattan. This real estate developer from downtown Buffalo has been giving media interviews back to back since he trounced an establishment Republican last month to become the party's nominee. He is visibly exhausted, shirt rumpled, dark circles...

    I’d have said the same thing. And so would you. If a grown man was hassling my fourth-grade daughter, I’d knock him on his ass. What Paladino did was what fathers do. And maybe if more politicians had that same sense of right and wrong, and an instinctive impulse to stand up for what’s right, we’d be better off. Did you hear about the dust up? It was Wednesday night at the Sagamore on Lake George. There was a big meeting of the New York State Business Council. Which is surprising. Because I didn’t know there was any business left...

    We’re late to this one, but oh well. The editor in question is Fred Dicker, who’s covered Albany for the Post since forever and whom Paladino accuses of being in the tank for Andrew Cuomo (maybe with some justification). Last weekend, the Post ran a story about the child Paladino had with a former mistress 10 years ago and reportedly sent a photographer to the house where Paladino’s daughter lives to get a shot of her. Here’s their campaign statement about it; that invasion of privacy is what spurred Paladino to tell Dicker he’d take him out. Paladino also wants...

    Remember when liberals brushed aside any criticism of candidate Barack Obama being unqualified to become president because of his lack of executive experience? Well, that was then and this is now because Susan Estrich has suddenly developed "concern" over the qualifications of the Tea Party backed Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York, Carl Paladino. A skeptic might rightly believe this recent Estrich infatuation with qualifications could be inspired by the fact that Paladino is closing the gap in the polls with the Democrat candidate, Andrew Cuomo. Here is Estrich with her newly developed qualifications concern: The Republican nominee for governor...

    Flying Pigs Alert!The gubernatorial campaign of Andrew Cuomo has such a poor credibility problem that even the local New York City CBS affiliate is asking: "Cuomo Caught Lying About Voting for Bloomberg?"

However, as the CBS affiliate pointed out, it didn't happen: But for all his actions as the state’s chief law enforcement officer, Cuomo did have a little problem with telling the truth about his election box support for Mayor...

The latest Quinnipiac University survey released today finds likely voters are almost ready to start calling Carl Paladino governor. A few days ago, many New Yorkers didn't even know him. But now the Quinnipiac poll finds the Republican nominee is within six points of Cuomo. The Democrat leads the Republican 49-43 percent, with seven undecided. The margin of error is 3.6 percentage points. According to the poll, voters want change in Albany...

Except Paladino guru Mike Caputo’s explanation. “We’re going to continue beating on Andrew Cuomo until he comes out and answers questions and agrees to a series of debates,” he said. “Every day, every week, we’re going to come up with any creative solution we can to make that happen. Today, it’s Andrew in the shower. Tomorrow, watch this space.” I asked about the gold chain…an unfair anti-Italian stereotype? “That would...
