Cuomo team says Paladino's words don't match his record

Andrew Cuomo's campaign is out with a statement hitting their Republican rival for employing campaign aides with controversial backgrounds. The critique is part of the campaign's overall push to paint Paladino as a hypocrite.

Which, if you think about it, is vastly different than the earlier criticisms that were coming from Democrats, who questioned Paaldino's temperament, saying Paladino he was "unfit" for the state's highest office.

In a statement from Cuomo's running mate today, Bob Duffy says, "This morning’s New York Times article on the criminal and ethical violations by Mr. Paladino’s closest campaign staffers underscores that Mr. Paladino’s actions do not match his words. Mr. Paladino seems to have forgotten that our country is built on the notion that no man is above the law."

Paladino though, has no reservations about making his criticisms of Cuomo personal.
