Silver Responds To Paladino ‘Criminal’ Slam
05 October 2010, 2:58 pm by Nick Reisman Speaking at a Crain’s New York Business function earlier today, Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino called Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan, a criminal and warned legislators “don’t mess with me.” It’s a long line in a list of jabs Paladino, a wealthy Buffalo businessman, has taken at Silver, the powerful Assembly speaker whose held the post since 1994. Paladino has suggested he would take Silver up to an upstate prison and allow townspeople along the way to “beat up on him a little.” Silver this afternoon issued a brief statement saying he won’t get bogged down “into the gutter with Mr. Paladino.” “It is unfortunate that New Yorkers are being forced to endure the insulting and baseless hectoring of the Republican candidate for governor,” Silver said. “I will not get into the gutter with Mr. Paladino, nor dignify his comments with a response. Rather, I will let New Yorkers judge his fitness for public office.” _______________________________________________

Stop your bullying, intimidation and harassment Mr. Paladino.
From: Carl Paladino:
It’s all facts Ms. Nevergold. Isn’t this about the time when you play the race card and get your band of parasitic activists screaming? You can’t answer the questions I posed can you? Nobody is listening to you anymore. Is that why you are so frustrated and reckless? You are presently obstructing the ability of un-conflicted BOE members to effectively engage Federal authorities. Isn’t that obstruction of justice? Read more ›
Cathy Young comes across in her District as a down-home, one-of-us neighbor who goes to Albany to do good works. I do think she shares most of our values on the Second Amendment and otherwise. Having said that, she has become a fixture in the Albany Establishment and has now transcended being just a senator from the southern tier to being part of the Albany political Establishment. I expect to see her take on additional titles and trappings soon. Read more ›
