    NY governor candidate to reporter: 'I'll take you out'

    (CNN) -- A confrontation Wednesday night between New York gubernatorial hopeful Carl Paladino and a reporter threatened to turn physical.

    The dustup was captured in an exclusive cellphone video by CNN affiliate YNN Albany. It began with New York Post statehouse columnist Fred Dicker pressing Paladino to back up an explosive allegation he made to the Politico website Wednesday that his opponent, Andrew Cuomo, had taken "paramours" during his marriage to Kerry Kennedy.

    "Do you have any evidence of the charge you made?"

    "You'll get it at the appropriate time. You're not entitled to it," retorted Paladino, who then derided Dicker as Cuomo's "stalking horse" and "bird dog."

    The confrontation escalated from there.

    "You send another goon to my daughter's house and I'll take you out, buddy," an apparent reference to the Post's coverage of a daughter Paladino had out of wedlock.

    Dicker shot back: "You gonna take me out?"

    "Yeah."

    "How you gonna do that?"

    "Watch," Paladino ended with, before walking off.

    The Post declined to comment on the altercation. The Paladino camp did not immediately return a request for comment. Nor did the Cuomo camp.

    ROFL! Not the best choice of words.

    Remember though, this is the same guy who said he would use emminent Domain laws to stop the Islamic Cultural Centre near Ground Zero.

    But that's besides the point.

    I don't support idiotic reporters of tabloids like the New York Post going after candidates family members. This idiot reporter could probably use a good kick up the ass.

    HOWEVER.

    This candidate just probably shot up his chances with this heated exchange, which I think we can all agree. Could have gone alot better.

    Certainly doesn't help he's making claims about his opponent that he can't back up.

    All in all, he's a loser. Probably will end up losing.

    I listened to this guy speak a few weeks ago. Sad theat anyone ever voted for him. He's got issues.



    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The sad thing is that certain voters will have no problem with this sort of boorish, lowbred and oafish behavior.

    Why doesnt the NY media ask him about his donations to Schumer, Hillary, Kerry and his Eminent Domain abuses? He's just a conservative version of Elliot Spitzer, a big mouthed punk.

    I've seen the confrontation on video and I support Paladino on this one. I also heard the reporter interviewed, and when asked "have you written negative stories about the other guy" he never answered the question and deflected it. These reporters are trying to attack Paladino's personal life and are harassing his 10 year old daughter that was born out of wedlock. The reporter in the video was irrationally angry, cursing, and acting uncivil. Paladino was firm in his disgust of them sending photographers to his 10 year old girl, and also talked about their media bias towards the Democrat that is running.

    Albany politics are a joke.

    At any rate, Paladino lost my vote when he announced that his solution to the Park51 conundrum was eminent domain.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
