Emailing funny cat videos to your friends is one thing, but sending pornographic videos you think are “awesome” is on a whole different level, a Republican gubernatorial candidate promoted by the tea party movement is finding out.
An upstate New York website announced Wednesday, “Since Carl decided to make an issue of ‘pornographers and perverts’ who are subverting our society and offending his values and Catholic sensibilities, we here at WNYMedia.net thought now would be a great time to revisit the 70-something emails that Carl Paladino sent around to hundreds of his friends, advisors, and associates as well as to leaders in the WNY business community and government officials over the course of several years.”
(Warning: Explicit photos at WNYMedia link)
Earlier this year—when Paladino was running against former Senate candidate Rick Lazio for the Republican nomination—Buffalo-based WNYMedia.net published some of the emails he had sent to “a veritable who’s who of Buffalo-area politicians, media types, hangers-on, hacks, and appointees.” And oh, what emails they were, ranging from racist depictions of President Obama, to different racist depictions of President Obama.
But those weren’t the only copies of Paladino correspondence obtained by WNYMedia.net. Besides the horrifying racist emails, there was the explicit porn email—much of which the site published today. And, well: It’s pretty gross. Here’s one, titled “Russian treasure XX open in private” (the “treasure” is a woman, who lactates on a window, not a painted egg, or whatever)
In reference to one that Paladino allegedly sent in October of 2009 under the subject header “2 Chicks Turning up the heat – XXX”, the WNYMedia.net article states,
Here’s another video that Carl Paladino described as “awesome”. Perhaps this is the proof his campaign needed to establish that he is all for gay people being gay. Nevertheless, based on his speeches in Brooklyn, he doesn’t think that these young ladies’ relationship is a “valid and successful option”. But he’s happy to watch.
Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo ripped the website but did not deny his boss sent the salacious texts.
Caputo said Paladino apologized for forwarding offensive emails in April, when the first batch became public. He accused the blog of being run by liberal activists who “tried to derail our campaign once before with emails of questionable origin.
“We’ve gotten past this. We’re not going to take the time to confirm these miscreants’ new attempt to revive their dying website.”
Watch Devin Nunes freak out and eject reporters when asked about phone calls with Lev Parnas
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) lost it over the weekend when he was asked about his phone calls with Rudy Giuliani's associate Lev Parnas, who was recently indicted.
Nunes was at a Republican Party fundraiser in New York City when two Intercept reporters asked about the impeachment probe. Recent phone records subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee revealed that Nunes had multiple conversations with Giuliani and with Parnas.
Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages
MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.
The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.
Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.
"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."
Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president
One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.
In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
