New York Assembly OKs Gay Marriage. C’mon, Senators

Yeah, yeah. As expected. Now it’s time for the New York Senate, and Majority Leader Malcolm Smith, to make an embarrassment of equal rights. One notable aspect about the Assembly’s passage? This year’s vote was 89-52, while the similar bill it passed in 2007 came in at 85-61. More yes votes this time, fewer neys: Signs of progress?
