Take a look back at the many meltdowns, scandals and foot-in-mouth moments of politicians through history.
Republican Carl Paladino, running for governor in New York in 2010, had a couple of notable moments during his campaign. Newsweek reported that he was caught on tape threatening to "take out" a columnist from the New York Post. He also gained national attention for comments on how children are "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option." He apologized for the comment but lost the election.
