NY GOP Gov Hopeful Paladino Makes Anti-Gay Remarks

October 11, 2010

New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino has told Orthodox Jewish leaders that there’s “nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual.”

Paladino made the comments while speaking with a group of conservatives at a synagogue in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn in New York City.

The Tea Party-supported candidate has said he is opposed to gay marriage. But his Sunday comments came as eight suspects were arraigned in an Oct. 3 attack on a gay man and two gay teens in the Bronx.

Asked whether his comments were appropriate given the attack, Paladino said he doesn’t want to “hurt homosexual people in any way.”

A spokesman for Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo said Paladino’s comments demonstrated “a stunning homophobia and a glaring disregard for basic equality.”
