Anti-Porn Candidate for Governor Loved to Send Porn in Email

Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for governor in New York, wants politicians to stop "pandering to... pornographers and perverts." Okay, Carl! So, to start, maybe you should stop forwarding emails filled with porn?

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):

And, finally, from the guy who spent the week not-really-apologizing for egregious gay-bashing over the weekend, came this moving depiction of the love that dare not speak its name, possibly because its mouth is full. Paladino's review: "Awesome."

WNYMedia.net says that it's confirmed the authenticity of the emails through multiple sources, and a Paladino spokesman reached by Capital Tonight didn't outright deny that Paladino had sent them.

What else is there to say, but "awesome"?
