    Default Idiot running for NY Governor's email exchange w/a gay man after his retarded comment

    Yes, this ass is actually running for Governor of New York State...and yes, he is as dumb as he seems. This is only one example of his ridiculousness....

    A gay man wrote an angry email to New York's homophobic governor candidate Carl Paladino. Carl responded, "Learn how to read." So the man wrote back, even more angrily—and so did Carl. Here is their full, 8-part exchange.

    Zach Nikonovich-Kahn, age 22, lives in Atlanta. He used to live in New York and has interned for two Democrats (summer in Rep. John Lewis's office and Hillary Clinton's NYC office during her transition from Senate to State Department) but isn't currently employed in politics. Zach told me he doesn't usually write to politicians, but when Paladino's anti-gay remarks coincided with Zach filming an "It Gets Better" video, he felt compelled to speak up. He used Paladino's business email. (He found it here.) This is his exchange with the New York Tea Partier, as forwarded to us by Zach.

    Mr. Paladino,

    You are a bigoted, homophobic asshole of the first order.

    You owe the people of New York - and the American people - a sincere, honest apology for your discriminatory remarks against homosexuality.

    It is because of people like you that so many gay teenagers in America kill themselves.

    Sincerely,
    Zach Nikonovich-Kahn

    Please rest assured that, being a college graduate, I know how to read. Being literate is something I sometimes regret, especially when I read such ridiculous and bigoted things that spew from your discriminatory mouth. I have read carefully your statements made to the other day and they are unequivocally homophobic.

    You are a slimeball who doesn't deserve the honor of being New York's governor. Not to mentin a hypocrite - I saw the email of the image depicting same-sex intercourse which you forwarded, labeling "awesome."

    Asshole.

    Also, you say I should not believe everything I read. But there is video of you making degrading and belittling remarks about homosexuals. So should I not believe everything I see too? Let me take a wild guess: those comments were "edited" by the "liberal press" to make you appear to be a bigot...

    Your homophobic remarks were covered extensively by some of the finest publications in the country, including the New York Times. The Times is one of the most credible and venerable sources of information in our nation. But I can see how you would consider that crap, considering you spend your time looking at raunchy pornography and bestiality images.

    First of all, what are meeds? Do you mean meds? Perhaps you should
    spend more time with a dictionary and less time trolling online porn.

    And by meds, do you mean my medication to help me become straight and
    eradicate this homosexual sickness from my body?

    We contacted Carl Paladino and his press office to verify the exchange and ask for comment, but have not heard back. We also contacted the two men Paladino CC'ed in his final email, Michael Caputo—the Paladino campaign manager who offered to resign during the homophobia scandal—and John Haggerty, Jr.—Paladino aide indicted for stealing millions from Bloomberg. Caputo responded from his personal email account:

    I don't think this happened; I received no CC. What are "meeds?"

    or... real character, we would make an effort to really address the
    wrongs in this society, righteously." -Jerry Garcia (1942 – 1995)

    Did Caputo miss the email, or is someone lying here? (Maybe after all those pornographic email forwards, Carl's messages are getting stuck in his spam filter?) Zach spoke on the record and offered information verifying his identity and many details of the story. "I have the emails saved in my inbox," he says. He didn't expect Paladino to respond; his best hope, at the time, was that Paladino would merely see his email. Caputo's denial, Zach says, is "outrageous."

    Oh god you should hear it around these parts. He said something about the place that my husband works (an Indian Casino that employs well over 5000 people in an area that has NOTHING else)...said he would shut it down in 2 wks after he wins. The guy could not possibly be more ignorant if he tried since he has no clue what in the hell he is talking about. Its actually down right funny.. and sad.

    LONG story short: he feels that the Casino is not paying enough in taxes/giving enough to the State. He has no IDEA how much they pay (my husband does since he is the Director of Finance for Casino)...or the deal the State made w/the Casino regarding this. He said he would give the Casino 2 wks to start paying X (I don't know how much) or he'd shut em down. This is not a small, nothing Bingo hall we're talking about--its a fucking city in the middle of nowhere that pays a LOT to the State and like I said, employs almost 6000 people in an area that has literally nothing else going for it. It's laughable for him to think he could do that.
    Rant over.

    ^^Thankfully no. He keeps opening his stupid mouth and each time, he loses more votes. He's an IDIOT.

    Fun fact: He has a 10 yr old daughter w/his mistress, that the press found out about so he was forced to tell his wife about it. WHO HE IS STILL MARRIED TO. Nice huh?

    Paladino is an ass, even by tea party standards.
    Tea baggers want to fight the Man because the Man doesn't look like them.
