The New York Daily News reported that not only had Carl Paladino rented space to two gay clubs in Buffalo but also that his son William had actually run one of the clubs. The information linking the Paladinos to gay clubs was uncovered in state liquor license records.

The article came a day after Paladino apologized to the gay and lesbian community for what he characterized as his "'poorly chosen words'" and many others viewed as anti-gay remarks in a speech he delivered before Orthodox Jewish leaders October 10. The information linking the Paladinos to gay clubs was uncovered in state liquor license records.
