Cathy Paladino, the awesome, Irish wife of Carl Paladino, Republican nominee for New York governor, sat down with the Post this morning to give voters a better understanding of who her husband is. Here’s who he is:
It was just about a year ago, hours after the death of her son in a car crash, that Cathy Paladino’s husband told her he was the father of a 10-year-old girl with another woman — and that all their children and most of their friends already knew.
So he still sounds like a jerk, for the most part, but Cathy is such a sweetheart that her reflected charm might actually help Paladino sway voters. She is totally devoted to this man; aroused by him even when he makes disparaging remarks about her family. Here’s how they met, for example:
As for the other family he had? “Cathy said learning about her husband’s 10-year-old daughter, Sarah, didn’t faze her … My first thought was, ‘How lucky. Every child’s a gift.’ She laughed softly. ‘It’s not that important.’”
Okay, win or lose, Carl Paladino is going to have a woman in his life who loves him. Upset … yet also attracted to him.
