Paladino vs. Dicker: Cute-Bear Animated Version

The New York Post's Fred Dicker provoked a heated argument with Carl Paladino last night, by repeatedly asking the New York Republican gubernatorial candidate for evidence of his allegation that the state attorney general, and Paladino's Democratic opponent, Andrew Cuomo had been unfaithful to his ex-wife while married to her. In the interest of highlighting the substance of their exchange (for the full drama, see CBS 6 Albany's indeed-dramatic video footage), we've reproduced the confrontation here in a format in which Paladino's and Dicker's terms are clear and easy to understand.

The dialogue picks up immediately following Dicker's question, "What evidence do you have for something that most people would consider a smear?"
