Jon Corzine kinda sorta came out against civil unions yesterday. The New Jersey governor told reporters that he has “significant concerns” about the legislation, which a commission just found to be flawed.
Said Corzine: “The report does raise significant concerns about whether the law has effectively granted same-sex couples the same rights and benefits of every other family in the state.”
Despite his hesitancy, however, ally Corzine will not push for gay marriage until after this November’s election. While on the surface it may seem like Corzine’s skirting the issue, but he’s most probably trying to keep wedge issues off the table lest he fuck up the Democratic game.
