Gay For Pay - Carl Paladino and Ron Paladino

Actions speak louder than words.

Huffington Post is reporting that State liquor license records show that New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino had once collected rent from two gay clubs located in buildings he owned in downtown Buffalo, according to a published report.  And more revealing, so to speak, a club named Cobalt, run by Paladino's son, William, operated as a gay bar in 2004 and most of 2005. It was housed in a building owned by one of Paladino's many companies, Huron Group LLC.

Liquor license records also showed that the other club, Buddies II, operated under the name Queen City Entertainment in another Paladino building in 2005 and 2006.  Buddies II described itself as a "bar where anyone and everyone is welcome (and) prejudices are left at the door."

The report in the Daily News on Wednesday comes just after Paladino told a group of Orthodox Jewish leaders that he opposed schools for what he called "brainwashing" of students into thinking that being gay is just another choice and "not the way God created us."


  1. Palladino benefits from other things he's against such as government spending in Albany on his buildings. My complaint about Palladino and his statement about gays is that he believes a person can be brain-washed into being gay.

  2. My problem with Palladino is that he calls gays "disgusting" and "a terrible thing." He says to see two men dancing in speedos at a a parade disgusting." Yet he emails friends pornographic videos of HORSES fucking woman. He must think highly of woman.
