Albany Eruption

New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino didn't help his reputation as a loose cannon when he got into a Sept. 29 shouting match with legendary New York Post political columnist Fred Dicker. A veteran provocateur, Dicker was peppering Paladino with questions about the candidate's unsubstantiated claim that his opponent had an affair. The Republican was equally incensed over a story the Post had run about the daughter Paladino had fathered outside his marriage. As things got increasingly heated, Paladino leaned in and thundered, "You send another goon to my daughter's house and I'll take you out, buddy!"
