Just because Democratic State Sens. Loretta Weinberg and Raymond Lesniak have asked Senate chief Richard Codey to bring the gay marriage bill to the floor on Thursday doesn’t mean he will. But as the clock ticks down to Jan. 19 and Gov. Jon Corzine’s exit, and a vote still absent in the State Assembly — where Democratic Speaker Joseph Roberts, who supports the bill, refuses to bring it to a vote until the Senate does — here we are, still playing hot potato with people’s rights.
