Frankly, Carl Paladino had every right to be angry at these scumbag reporters. Kids are off-limits assholes. Gawker is claiming that Paladino was physical with Fred Dicker, this simply is not true. It appears that someone in the crowd or a member of Paladino's campaign may have put their hands up to stop Fred Dicker's advance on Paladino. Liberals are so desperate right now to stop Carl Paladino from winning this election. Paladino has just secured the Conservative Party Line, giving him the Republican, Conservative, and Taxpayers Line for November 2nd. With the entrance of the Black and Hispanic "Freedom" Party, Andrew Cuomo is now frantic to try and recapture the minority vote he needs to win.
Paladino's aides had to separate him and a New York Post reporter during a five-minute confrontation before a speech Wednesday night.Post State Editor Fred Dicker had asked Paladino to provide proof of his suggestion to the Politico blog that his Democratic opponent, Andrew Cuomo, had extramarital affairs. Cuomo is divorced from Kerry Kennedy, Robert Kennedy's daughter.
Paladino refused but said he would provide proof "at the appropriate time," then accused Dicker of being biased for Cuomo. Paladino criticized Dicker because a Post journalist recently went to the home of Paladino's 10-year-old daughter, who was fathered out of wedlock."I'll take you out, buddy!" Paladino said to Dicker toward the end of the confrontation."You'll take me out?" Dicker responded. "How are you going to do that?""Watch," Paladino said, leaving the scene, the lobby of the Sagamore conference center."Are you threatening me?" Dicker shouted as Paladino left.
Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo said afterward that a Post photographer recently put the lens of a camera against the daughter's bedroom window while she was practicing for a school dance and she has had bouts of crying and has been calling her father every day since.Paladino told The Associated Press it was the way Dicker "came into my face that was aggravating." He refused to answer questions after a long, well-received speech to the state Business Council.Post spokeswoman Suzi Halpin and Cuomo had no comment.
