Carl Paladino didn't mean to say opponent Andrew Cuomo had an affair—what he was really trying to say is that Cuomo is a sex god. In a three-minute YouTube video posted yesterday, Paladino attempts to explain the near-violent fight he had with New York Post reporter Fred Dicker (you can see the video here). Dicker allegedly had Paladino’s 10-year-old love child trailed, which made Paladino angry—and made him make accuse his opponent of having an affair, too.
“For weeks the media has badgered me about affairs,” he says. “What I meant to express in my anger was simply this: Does the media ask Andrew such questions? Andrew’s prowess is legendary!” He then quickly asserts that the campaign should be about issues, not sex. As Gawker quips, “Yeah, you know how Andrew Cuomo is a sex god who wields his dick like a steel broadsword? Do not pay attention to this fact.” (Read more Carl Paladino stories.)
