Tea Party NY Gov Candidate's E-Mails Exposed: Racism, Porn, Bestiality.

The man the Tea Party movement made it's Republican candidate for governor of New York has been sending out emails which are being described as "racist and sexually graphic".

One email shows a video of an African tribal dance, entitled "Obama Inauguration Rehearsal," while another depicts hardcore bestiality.

Paladino's campaign manager, Michael Caputo, would not comment on specific emails, but acknowledged to TPMmuckraker that Paladino had sent emails that were "off-color" and "politically incorrect," saying that few such emails represented the candidate's own opinion. Caputo accused Democrats of wanting to change the subject from substantive issues to "having sex with horses."

The news outlet that obtained the emails, WNYmedia.net, a western New York media company, says it confirmed that at least some of the emails were authentic by contacting several people who had received them.

Of course, the Democrats will now be accused of attempting to change the subject, as they are every time the latent racism of this movement comes to the fore.

Instead, we are asked to believe that these emails, which no-one is denying that he sent, did not represent his own opinions.

An October 2009 email with a photograph showing President Obama and the First Lady dressed in 70s-era blaxploitation pimp and prostitute costumes while attending a formal event at the White House.

A December 2008 email showing a video of African tribesmen performing a traditional dance. The video is entitled "Obama Inauguration Rehearsal."

• A September 2009 email entitled, "Easy Steady Big Fella....XXXX," with a photograph that graphically depicts a horse having sex with a woman.

• A January 2010 email, containing a hardcore pornographic video entitled "Miss France 2008 F[***]ing."

• A July 2009 email showing a photograph of an airplane landing directly behind a group of black men. The caption reads: "Holy Sh*t. run ni**ers, run!"
Ask yourself what your reaction to receiving any of those emails would be. Could you imagine any circumstance in which you would forward them to others?

I can't. But we have all received bad taste texts and emails, usually they occur with astonishing speed as soon as any celebrity dies. Most of us delete them almost immediately.

Carl Paladino forwarded them to people, whilst asking us to believe that they did not represent his views.

He has made a statement which appears to miss the point completely:
To any of the ladies I've offended, I apologize. I say this to the men out there who have never opened a graphic image on the Internet: Don't vote for me. For those who have, I welcome your vote.
We have all received texts and emails of questionable taste, the point is that most of us delete them and move on. Paladino forwarded these foul things to people, and is now claiming that they don't represent his views.

That simply isn't credible.
