Paladino Wields Bat, Threatens Return

Paladino Wields Bat, Threatens Return


Antigay New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino conceded his race to Andrew Cuomo Tuesday night, but in keeping with the style of his campaign, he went out with a bang.

Brandishing a baseball bat onstage, Paladino said, "You can grab this handle and bring the people with you to Albany, or you can leave it untouched, and run the risk of having it wielded against you. Because make no mistake. You have not heard the last of Carl Paladino."

In September, Paladino made headlines when he said children should not be taught that homosexuality is normal and chastised his opponent for marching in the New York City gay pride parade.
