New York Gov. Race Getting Nastier

Carl Paladino

Carl Paladino, the GOP nominee for governor in New York, accused his Democrat rival Andrew Cuomo of an extramarital affair.

The accusations come after a string of videos have been released mocking Cuomo.

Paladino's accusation of the alleged Cuomo affair appeared Wednesday night. According to reports, Paladino asked, "Has anybody asked Andrew Cuomo about his paramours?"

Paladino himself revealed that he had an affair that produced a daughter who is now 10 years old. He's has made it clear that she's off limits to the press.

The governor's race appears to be getting rougher. The New York Daily News published a story Wednesday that states Paladino nearly had a physical confrontation with a reporter over the coverage of his daughter. 

Paladino told  New York Post reporter Fred Dicker, "You send another goon to my daughter's house and I'll take you out, buddy."

Both Politico and the Daily News report that Paladino did not offer evidence to back up his claim of Cuomo's affair, but that Paladino said he will soon.
