Commenting on the offensive emails Republican gubernatorial candidiate Carl Paladino forwarded:
The emails are completely offensive, unacceptable, have never been part of the party I belong to or associate with. I believe the Republican Party has a lot of soul searching to do here. By the way, I think the Democratic Party does too, but maybe for different reasons. I think the Republican Party needs to decide who they are, what they want to be, where they want to take the people of the state or the nation, depending on what you’re talking about. And it’s one of the reasons why yesterday, number one, I didn’t endorse. Number two, I raised questions about public character, I think on the part of both of the candidates.
