Candidate Versus Reporter, Caught On Tape

New York gubernational candidate Carl Paladino and New York Post reporter Fred Dicker had words, to put it mildly, over Mr. Paladino's allegation that his rival Andrew Cuomo had had affairs during his marriage to Kerry Kennedy (the couple is now divorced). When Mr. Dicker asked for evidence, Mr. Paladino retorted that Mr. Dicker wasn't entitled to proof just then and that the reporter was merely Mr. Cuomo's "stalking horse." He then told Mr. Dicker, "You send another goon to my daughter's house and I'll take you out, buddy," to which Mr. Dicker responded, "You're gonna take me out? How you gonna do that?" Mr. Paladino's response, "Watch." More here from CNN.
