As a columnist points out in the NY Daily News, Spitzer could make New York the first state to enact gay marriages through a state legislature. He has said it is a priority on his legislative agenda if he becomes governor, and many expect him too (including the voters!). This is good news after gays lost their case for marriage last week in the state's Court of Appeals.
Go Spitzer, Go!
Oh, and we love this quote from an openly gay legislator in the NYS Capitol:
"Nobody wants civil unions," said openly gay state Sen. Tom Duane. "Marriage is where it's at. That's what we want."
That's right. Jim Crow is not alive and well in New York!
