Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for New York governor who was caught this week forwarding racist and pornographic emails, apologized again yesterday.

“That activity is not Carl Paladino,” said the wealthy real estate developer at a town hall event on Staten Island.Paladino had already apologized to any “ladies” who might have been offended, while saying that he welcomed the votes of men who opened attachments online.

Among the emails forwarded by Paladino was one showing an African tribal dance entitled “Obama Inauguration Rehearsal,” and another showing a woman having sex with a horse.
