He's accused of leaking confidential information in the wake of the outrage over his remarks about former president Barack Obama. The Buffalo School Board, where Paladino serves, says they are trying to prove he violated a code of conduct by revealing information on three occasions, from two board sessions.

Paladino says contract talks were over before he spoke, and nothing was violated.

He could lose his seat if the state education commissioner rules against him.
