A few months ago, New York State gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino was caught sending extremely racist and pornographic emails to some kind of large mailing list. I had assumed that was the end for Paladino, but apparently it wasn’t. Paladino just picked up a key endorsement and the panel on “Capital Tonight” (an excellent show on New York State politics) is saying that he has a chance in the Republican primary in September.
This is New York State so he will lose by 20-35 points in the general if he
wings the primary. But I really can’t believe he has a chance of being the nominee.
