Via a New York State reader, Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino is sending out campaign mailers marked as “Important Tax Information” in official-looking envelopes.
The envelopes are marked “Important Tax Information Enclosed - Do Not Discard.” Inside is a card which lists a long “Taxpayer ID Number.”
Turn the card over though, and it’s electioneering from the Paladino campaign: “Only Carl Paladino has a specific plan to cut property taxes … Vote Carl Paladino for governor.” It’s marked as paid by his campaign.
The mailing doesn’t ask for any personal or tax information — just votes.

Paladino’s campaign did not immediately return a request for comment Saturday morning.
