‘Bloomberg has consistently supported the Republican Party and its anti-gay marriage agenda’

SOUNDBITES — “Once again Mike Bloomberg is talking out of both sides of his mouth. The fact of the matter is Mike will stand up in press conferences and talk the talk but at the end of the day he never walks the walk. Mike Bloomberg has consistently supported the Republican Party and its anti-gay marriage agenda. … As far as I know, the mayor hasn’t been in on any discussions with Senate Democrats or with Senate Republicans on strategy for getting marriage passed. There have been people involved with his administration that I’ve talked with and others may have spoken to, but I don’t know of the mayor personally speaking to anyone. … I remain confident it will get done this fall.” — New York State Sen. Thomas Duane battling back against NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said he has no confidence in securing marriage rights this year
