(NEW YORK) -- No stranger to brash comments, New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino was caught on tape using a four-letter word to describe an Obama administration decision on where to try terror suspects.
Still facing a firestorm over recent comments some interpreted as anti-gay, Paladino finds himself again having to defend or apologize for impulsive comments.
Asked in March for his reaction to a since-shelved plan by Attorney General Eric Holder to hold trials for Guantanamo Bay detainees, like 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, in downtown Manhattan, Paladino gruffly replied: "F**k him. F**k him."
The video, though seven months old, was recently posted on YouTube and the National Journal website.
Calls and e-mail to Paladino's office for comment were not immediately returned.
