Cox endorses Paladino who launched racist rant against Obama and Michelle
Chairman of the New York Republican State Committee Ed Cox’s tone deaf endorsement of former Republican standard bearer Carl Paladino’s effort to remain on the Buffalo School Board is both shameful and repugnant.
Paladino’s racist rant against the President and the First Lady is beyond the pale and shows just how unfit he is to be in any position of authority, much less one that directly impacts the lives of children.
Conversely, Ed Cox dismissing Paladino’s latest outburst is just one more example of how out of touch he is with his fellow New Yorkers.
We call on other leaders of the Republican Party, John Flanagan, Brian Kolb, Rob Astorino, Tom Dadey, and Chris Jacobs to do the right thing, stand with the children of Buffalo, and demand Carl Paladino resign. Make no mistake, silence is complicity.
