Carl Paladino: The Early, Equally Crazy Years

oh dear

It’s time to get to know your next governor of New York state a little better!

He met his future wife, Mary Catherine Hannon, at one of the events he planned, though their first meeting did not go well. He made a joke about her uncle back in Buffalo, whose indictment was all over the newspapers, and she threw a beer at him. “It wasn’t nice,” he said of his remark, calling it an early, if unheeded, lesson about keeping “my big mouth shut.”

Also he believes the IRS killed his father-in-law. Also he didn’t manage to tell his wife about his secret family until his mistress’s child was nine? I’m impressed. (We’re kidding, by the way. He’s not going to be the governor. Probably!)
