The issue we will tire of this season are the "offensive" emails sent by Carl Paladino....Off color jokes he received and forwarded to others...Then they were made public by a recipient and the Democrats have been talking about it for months...
Its a way to play the race and gender card all at once.
Paladino did something without thinking about the political impact. He says it was a mistake...But like everything in politics, such things never end.
Democrats are intent on labling Paladino a racist and are insisting everyone running as a Republican share their feigned outrage by denouncing the top of the ticket.
AG candidate and "social justice" crusader Eric Schneiderman is one of those on that bandwagon. Mr. Schneiderman is just another white politician making a living off race baiting.
I think the jokes we all get on email and text are largely stupid and not worth reading.....much less forwarding...
If Mr. Paladino did so, let him explain it if he wants....but let's not make everyone else answer for his alleged sin.
Besides, can't we just take the approach of Rep. Dan Maffei of Syracuse who was asked why he still supported Rep. Charles Rangel despite many ethical violations ?
Mr. Maffei says we should hate the sin, but love the sinner.....Can't we do that for Carl too ?
