Clinton, Schumer Under Fire For Gay Marriage Stance


Gay activist Allen Roskoff, with whom we spoke earlier this year, has some harsh words for New York Senators Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer:

It is way past time that our community start holding accountable the U.S. Senators from New York: Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer. As New York State is on the verge of reaching marriage equality, it is a disgrace that both our U.S. senators still oppose our right to marry. While some people may like to bask in the sunlight of the razzle-dazzle Clinton and the powerful but boring Schumer, they do so at the expense of full recognition of our relationships.

Unless the senators change their positions and support marriage equality by Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2009, I am calling on the LGBT community, including all the political clubs in New York, to declare the senators unwelcome to our support.

Well, that’s ample time, but we’re not so sure the Senators are going to take Roskoff up on his offer. Nor are we convinced the Empire State’s homos will fall in line…
