Paladino: No Mosque Or Islamic Center Where Dust Cloud Was And Use Eminent Domain To Seize Site

I thought these "Tea Party" candidates were supposed to be against "big government". Rick Sanchez had a somewhat contentious interview with the winner of the Republican gubernatorial race, Carl Paladino and he advocated seizing the site where the Park 51 Islamic Center is being proposed by using eminent domain and he also said that no mosques or Islamic centers should be allowed to be built anywhere the dust cloud that carried human remains was located around ground zero. As Rick Sanchez pointed out to him, that stretched out quite a bit farther than the 1/4 mile or so Paladino was claiming.
