Republican Carl Paladino, a tea party candidate for governor of New York, said Monday on NBC's "Today" show that he doesn't discriminate against homosexuals. On Sunday, in a discussion of gay marriage at a meeting with Brooklyn Hasidic Jewish leaders, Paladino said children were being "brainwashed" into accepting homosexuality as "valid."
Paladino, a real estate developer and attorney, told host Matt Lauer on Monday morning that discrimination faced by homosexuals is "ugly" and "terrible" and he would hire gays in his administration. Lauer followed up with a question about whether Paladino believed Sunday's comments would fuel discrimination against gays
Sounds like the fear that many had about a Kennedy as president is coming to fruition, a politician that will put his catholic beliefs and dogmas above the people is supposed to serve.

I could totally get on board with discriminating against Speedos. I've never seen anyone who belongs in one wearing one.
LOL! I second that motion!
As for Paladino, sounds like an issue that the voters of NY should take up in the voting booth.
