Better Than Porn? NY Gov Candidate Floats Cuomo Conspiracy

New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino knows how to grab headlines, intentionally or not. Today he's in the news because of his habit of sending graphic porn and racist jokes out via mass email. Last week, he aimed and fired at his chief rival for the governor's seat, New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, accusing Cuomo of being the "initiator" of the financial crisis through his role as HUD Secretary under President Bill Clinton.

At HUD, Paladino charged, Cuomo pushed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac "to lower their standards so every American can enjoy having a house."
