Paladino encourages protest at Cuomo fundraiser

   By Robert J. McCarthy

   Buffalo real estate developer Carl P. Paladino is acting very much like a candidate for governor once again.

   The 2010 Republican opponent of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo bought local radio time today to encourage an anti-Cuomo protest at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo this evening during the governor's big Western New York fundraiser.

   Paladino's ads encourage those who disagree with Cuomo's positions on gun control and casino gambling as well as his delay in approving or disapproving the hydraulic fracturing method of natural gas recovery in New York State to show up en masse at the Hyatt this evening.

   The event is expected to draw several hundred Cuomo supporters and garner $300,000 to $400,000 for the governor's re-election effort, according to organizers.
