Paging Andrew Breitbart: NY Tea Party candidate sent out racist emails

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

According to Breitbart, it's nothing but a liberal media smear campaign to suggest racial animosity plays any role in the often unhinged, Obama-hating Tea Party movement.

Except that, of course, it does.

From Talking Points Memo [emphasis added]:

An online news outlet in New York state has obtained dozens of emails, many of them racist and sexually graphic, which it reports were sent by Carl Paladino, the Tea-Party-backed Republican candidate for governor of New York, to a long list of political and business associates. One email shows a video of an African tribal dance, entitled "Obama Inauguration Rehearsal," while another depicts hardcore bestiality.
