Carl Paladino threatens NY Post reporter

New York is abuzz this morning over video of a very public brawl
last night between GOP candidate for governor Carl Paladino and NY Post
state editor Fred Dicker outside an upstate hotel.

Dicker asked Paladino if he had any proof that Democratic
gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo cheated on his ex-wife, as Paladino
claimed earlier this week. But Paladino, not known for biting his
tongue, instead exploded on Dicker.

want to know why you sent your goons after my daughter, Fred,” Paladino
demanded. “You send another goon to my daughter’s house and I’ll take
you out, buddy!”

was livid NY Post reporters photographed the 10-year-old daughter he
fathered a decade ago with a woman other than his wife.

A Post photographer recently photographed Paladino’s daughter while she was in her bedroom, practicing for a school dance, Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo told the AP. She has had bouts of crying and has been calling her father every day since, said Caputo.
