Carl Paladino’s campaign manager tells the Post the candidate’s company inherited the tenant as the result of a property deal and cannot legally evict.

On his website, Paladino calls abortion a “fundamental assault on the sanctity of innocent human life.”

“I oppose using public revenues to promote or perform abortion and, as Governor, I will not fund organizations which advocate the procedure,” he says.

The center also provides a number of services to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals, including “education,” “resources,” and “service referral.”

Paladino this week criticized opponent Andrew Cuomo for marching in a gay pride parade, saying that it sent the wrong message to children.

“I don’t want them to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option,” he said. “It isn’t.”

Paladino later told ABC News Radio he “could have chosen my words better.”
