NY Marriage Equality: How The Vote Went Down

NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 12: Supporters of gay marr...

In case you're wondering which of the Democrats sent equal marriage to defeat today in New York state, here's the list. You might think, as I did, that it was senators from the more conservative upstate districts who voted "no", but you'd be wrong...equality died today thanks to representatives from Queens and Brooklyn, including districts with especially large gay populations.

I've linked to the despicable cretins' official web pages, if you'd like to contact them and give them a piece of your mind...or better yet, to vote them out of office next time they're up. (list via AKA William)

Joseph Addabbo (D-Queens) – NO
Darrel Aubertine (D- Cape Vincent) – NO
Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) – NO
Shirley Huntley (D-Queens) – NO
Carl Kruger (D-Brooklyn) – NO
Hiram Monserrate (D-Queens...Jackson Heights and Elmhurst, no less, the new gay neighborhood!) – NO
George Onorato (D-Queens) – NO
William Stachowski (D-Buffalo) – NO

New York and Cali? If you cannot be gay and married there, where can you be? I do like the idea of the new anti-divorce movement though - the one to protect the sanctity of marriage.
