New York Governor Eliot Spitzer makes our head spin…
The New York Post reports that Spitzer promised to pass gay marriage in 2009. Spitzer’s people, however, insist he’s been misinterpreted.
Democrat Spitzer and friends gathered last Wednesday at Oz creator Tom Fantana’s Manhattan abode and, according to one witness, Spitzer used the opportunity to celebrate same-sex nuptials.
“One of the first things we’re going to do when [Senate Minority Leader] Malcolm Smith is [majority] leader is gay marriage,” the witness recounted Spitzer as telling some 60 people who paid up to $10,000 each to attend the event in Greenwich Village Wednesday night.
“Everybody applauded when he said that,” said the witness, who was among senators.
Two other guests tell The Post that, yes, Spitzer suggested the Democrats could move forward the Empire State toward full equality.
Spitzer’s flack strikes down the story, saying that Spitzer celebrated the NY Assembly’s gay marriage passage, but made no political promises, which would invariably bite him in the ass.
