Anti-Abortion NY Gov. Candidate Paladino Is Landlord To Abortion Clinic

Carl Paladino may be against abortion facilities, but he has no trouble housing them and taking their money. Paladino, who is against abortions even in cases of rape or incest, rents to Planned Parenthood of Buffalo. And he even used them to argue for a tax exemption.

Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York President Tracey Brooks accused Paladino of “talking out of one side of his mouth” against abortion while “renting and accepting money from health-care centers he’s looking to cut funding to.”

Paladino cited the presence of a Planned Parenthood center at his Haeberle Plaza shopping center to convince the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency to grant him special tax exemptions, official records show.

The Paladino campaign is spinning it by arguing it is part of an existing lease he was too principled to break.

His campaign manager, Michael Caputo, contended that Paladino’s company was obliged by an existing lease agreement to keep Planned Parenthood as a tenant after it acquired land to build the shopping center.
