When people accused Carl Paladino of being a racist over the summer, he brought out his black friend (and former Buffalo Bills running back) Thurman Thomas to defend him. So when everyone and their mom accused him of being homophobic this week, Paladino turned to his gay nephew, also a campaign staffer, to help show that it wasn't true, proudly stating, "I enjoy a close relationship with my nephew who is gay and I certainly consider him to be a functional child of God." Except even his nephew was pissed—his nephew was especially pissed. "Obviously, I'm very offended by his comments." Jeff Hannon told the Post.
