Roxy’s, a gay bar in Buffalo that celebrated its 10th birthday this month, had a special guest last night: the failed gubernatorial candidate, Buffalo local, and poop festishist Carl Paladino. Don’t remember him? Oh, he’s just the man who said he “just think[s] my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option — it isn’t.” Oh, and the same guy whose real estate firm Ellicott Development Company that used to play landlord to two of the town’s gay bars before things changed.

A Reddit user spotted (uploaded?) the photo, which we cross-checked against Roxy’s official Facebook page. And wouldn’t you know it, the neon figure behind him also appears in this photo, featuring a bartender with the same neon figure. (Here’s another shot from a different angle.)

We don’t know why Carl was there (fundgayser?) who or he went home with (a go-go dancer?), but one thing is for sure: that ain’t his wife Cathy. You know, the one he cheated on and fathered another child with. But hey, maybe going to the gay bars is the step Carl must take before hopping aboard one of those “disgusting” gay pride parade floats he loves so much.

Where will Carl pop up next?
