  • 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...

    Businessman and former G.O.P. gubernatorial nominee Carl Paladino, the most highly visible remaining supporter of Newt Gingrich in New York, says the former speaker's somewhat-suspended campaign plans to make an aggressive push here before the April 24 primary. "I think he's got a blistering schedule planned," said Paladino, who mentioned events in the Buffalo area and central New York, though he declined to offer specifics. (A campaign spokesperson didn't return an email about the campaign's plans.) "Unlike these other pussies that are saying, 'Oh, we don't want to have a brokered convention, oh'—they're a bunch of pussies, OK? Those are...

    ALBANY, NY December 19, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A New York chapter of Planned Parenthood required teenagers to attend a gay pride parade if they wanted to work for the organization – as part of a program funded by the state’s taxpayers. Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood in Albany recruits teens, including minors, as “peer educators” for its STARS (Seriously Talking About Responsible Sex) program. The STARS program pays the youth $75 every other week to promote Planned Parenthood and its view of sexuality. In an online video, a STARS counselor describes the message the counselors deliver to their peers: “If you...

    Carl Paladino's campaign stiffed about a dozen consultants, vendors and staff members for some $130,000 in salaries, fees and expenses, according to numerous veterans of his failed gubernatorial bid. They are pressing for payment from a campaign committee, Paladino for the People, that is deep in debt. Public records show the committee has a balance of only $5,305 and debts of $6.1 million, most of them loans from the candidate. "I would have expected a nice thank-you from Carl for all the hard work I had contributed, but instead I got screwed," said Tim Suereth, who first served as manager...

    Miles J.

He faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000, or both. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert C Moscati, who is handling the case, said Fisher is accused of calling the “Paladino for the People” campaign headquarters of then-gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino at the Ellicott Square Building in Buffalo on April 13, 2010, saying he was “going to bomb all of you.”...

    1. The NYS Board of Elections has now published the official sample ballot for November 2nd -- with the Taxpayer Party and the Anti- Prohibition Party on the same line, meaning Carl Paladino and Madam X are on the same line. ?? They claim there wasn't enough room on the ballot so they had to combine them on Line "I" -- except that Line "J" is empty. If you have any confusion, simply vote for Carl on the Republican or Conservative line. But remember we need 50,000 signatures on the Taxpayers Line... 2.

    ALBANY -- Maybe it was fitting that Carl Paladino opened one of his final days on the campaign trail this morning on the steps of the State Capitol in a driving wind storm amid drops of rain. "This is the scene of the crime," a supporter shouted during his brief speech. "We're going to hose this building down," Paladino responded. As he entered the final stretch of the governor's race, the Buffalo businessman spent the early part of his morning bashing Democrat Andrew Cuomo on everything from the state budget to what he calls a "selective" prosecution record as attorney...

    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...

A report published today in the New York Post, says claims made by Paladino's campaign that the gubernatorial candidate took part in six months of active Army service and commanded 250 men at Fort Bliss in 1971, are false. These claims had been reported in multiple news sources. Michael Caputo, Paladino’s campaign manager, told Dan Collins, editor-at-large of the Huffington Post, that Paladino spent “six months of active duty with orders for Vietnam” and was, “responsible for training 250 men during that time.” The claims also...

Paladino's campaign manager, Michael Caputo, admitted the contentions were wrong after The Post obtained military records showing the Buffalo builder was on active duty for only three months, and was at Fort Bliss for training as a newly commissioned officer in the late summer of 1971, while the Vietnam War was raging.

The former attorney general was spectacularly unfit for the office he won in a landslide four years ago -- as a policymaker, as a politician and as a human being. Spitzer's legacy is David Paterson, an amiable fellow who in his own bumbling way was even less qualified for high office than his damaged-goods patron. But whereas four years ago the Republican Party offered the estimable John Faso as its gubernatorial candidate, this year the man at the top of the GOP ticket...

I have not seen any attempts at defending Carl Paladino in the respectable media. It does seem like an awfully unwise undertaking at a supremely bad time. And yet Paladino has, with formidable single-mindedness, virtually reinvented bad timing as a new kind of art form in the political arena, and so for that reason alone it’s worth a try. One thinks of Marc Antony’s famous refrain over Julius Caesar’s body in the Shakespeare play –...

    Carl Paladino's openly gay nephew -- whom the candidate points to as proof he's no homophobe -- said yesterday he was "very offended" by his uncle's anti-gay rants. Jeff Hannon, 23, a staffer for the Paladino campaign, also hasn't shown up at work since the bomb-throwing GOP gubernatorial hopeful made his caustic comments about homosexuality, one of Hannon's co-workers told The Post. In a brief phone interview yesterday, Hannon, in his first public remarks on the incident, told The Post, "Obviously, I'm very offended by his comments." Hannon said he had no further comments "right now," before hanging up. The...
  • NY rabbi drops support for Paladino after apology

    An Orthodox rabbi says he's withdrawing his endorsement of New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino because the Republican apologized for comments he made about gays. Rabbi Yehuda Levin, who represents an umbrella organization of ultra-Orthodox clerics, accused Paladino on Wednesday of bowing to political pressure when he apologized for a speech in which he said children shouldn't be "brainwashed" into thinking homosexuality is acceptable. Levin — speaking in New York City in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral — says he can't support Paladino's campaign "until such time as he straightens out."

    Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino rails against gay marriage and called the bumping-and-griding at gay pride parades disgusting. He also once was the landlord for two gay clubs in Buffalo. The real estate deal, first reported Wednesday by the New York Daily News, left Democrats calling him a hypocrite. Paladino's campaign said it proved that he supports gay rights, just not gay marriage. Meanwhile, a rabbi who represents an umbrella organization of ultra-Orthodox clerics said he was dropping his endorsement of Paladino because the candidate had apologized for the harsh wording of some of his comments about gays.

    The establishment media have launched a brutal attack on Carl Paladino, New York's Republican gubernatorial candidate, for this reason: Paladino spoke the truth about homosexual behavior. For modern American liberals, there is no greater sin than to publicly express the view that there may be something wrong with homosexual activity and that children should not be taught to consider homosexual behavior morally equal to chastity and marriage. No prominent politician who questions the wholesomeness of same-sex sex can escape a vicious beating by the liberal elite -- because these beatings serve a strategic purpose. They are designed to intimidate good...

    Rally Against Paladino: "He Has No Idea What He's Talking About" Rachel Kingston Reporting rkingston@entercom.com Buffalo, NY (WBEN) -- Over 100 people gathered at the doorstep of downtown Buffalo's Ellicott Square Building on Tuesday afternoon, to protest anti-gay remarks that Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino made on the campaign trail two days earlier. "I'm gay, and I'm valid, and I'm successful," Jody told WBEN's Rachel Kingston. "[I'm here because] I want to prove a point." For Jody, the issue isn't so much with Paladino's beliefs about homosexuality. She acknowledges that he has a right to think whatever he likes. But...

    lbany, N.Y. (AP) -- Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino apologized to the gay community Tuesday for what he called his "poorly chosen words" over the weekend as he sought to steer his troubled campaign back to the tax issues that won him the GOP nomination in September. "I am neither perfect, nor a career politician," Paladino said in an e-mail distributed by his flagging campaign. "I have made mistakes in this campaign — I have made mistakes all my life — as we all have. I am what I am — a simple man who works hard, trusts others,...

    Despite an uproar over his remarks about gays, Carl P. Paladino appeared on national television on Monday and expressed revulsion at gay pride parades. Mr. Paladino restated his criticism of Andrew M. Cuomo, his Democratic opponent for governor of New York, for having taken his young daughters to a gay pride parade, saying that such events were inappropriate for children. “Is that normal? Would you do it? Would you take your children to a gay pride parade?” Mr. Paladino asked the host Matt Lauer on the “Today” show, speaking of Mr. Cuomo. “I don’t think it’s proper for them to...

    First he goes after Andy Cuomo with allegations of extra-marital affairs–this coming from a man who fathered a child with his mistress. Next comes comments about Cuomo's "prowess." Then just in time for National Coming Out Day–today–Carl Paladino obsesses about gyrating gay men in Speedos at a Gay Pride Parade. You think Carl is a little obsessed with sex? Actually, I think he’s obsessed with grabbing headlines and media exposure regardless of the impact of his sinking campaign for Governor of New York State....
