Paladino campaign chairman says Paladino e-mailed “‘some regrettable material’”

NYHTC — October 26, 2010

In the immediate aftermath of information seemingly tying gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino to emails that were racist and sexually explicit, his campaign manager acknowledged Paladino had sent "'e-mails with some regrettable material'" and "'t's behavior that Carl regrets.'"

An editor for the web site that disclosed a number of the e-mails (WNYMedia.net) said it had accepted their authenticity after contacting three of the many individuals to whom the e-mails had been cc'ed. The state chairmen from both major parties released statements about the e-mails, with the Republican chairman referring to them as "'disturbing,'" and the Democratic Party chairman saying they "'disqualify him completely from public service.'"
