Chris has gotten threats about being gay. It’s hard to accept and we live in a place that is the most tolerant…When you have strides like marriage equality, you tend to think (prejudice) has passed, then things like that happen, and it wakes you up again.”
- Kim Catullo, openly gay city councilwoman and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn’s wife, addressing the rash of hate crimes in New York and Quinn’s bid for the mayor’s office in the New York Daily News.
@QJ201: The anger is not over her being or not being a “leftist.” The anger is over how she has abused her power as the head of the council and how she has thrown the gay community “under the bus” when it suits her own ends. As for “death threats” I would like to see evidence of it such as a police report. The timing on this is, IMO, suspect because I am perceiving that Quinn’s popularity is falling as more information about her practices, motives and in whose pocket she has her hands emerges.
