Website reveals graphic e-mails linked to Paladino

Posted: Updated:

GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino forwarded X-rated e-mails to friends and business associates for years, according to a liberal upstate political blog.

WNYMedia.net says it has more than 70 pornographic e-mails it claims were sent out by Paladino before he ran for office. The website has published a handful of the purported e-mails, all of which feature women in sexual situations.

Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo did not deny his boss sent the e-mails, but says the people behind WNYMedia.net are liberal activists who "tried to derail our campaign once before with e-mails of questionable origin."

Caputo was referring to e-mails that surfaced earlier this year on WNYMedia.net that contained racially charged images of President Barack Obama and the first lady.
