NY Sen. Ruben Diaz Again Turns State Lawmakers Into Cowering Queens on An LGBT Bill

Does Sen. Ruben Diaz, the anti-gay New York state senator who uses his 32nd majority-making vote to draw blood, have his fist up the asses of all Democrats in Albany? The spineless lawmakers, who consistently refuse to enact LGBT legislation (minus this month’s anti-bullying bill), gave in to Diaz’s “fit” over letting same-sex couples who married legally in another state file joint tax returns. Offered Senate Democratic Conference Leader John Sampson on Monday night: “That issue will be dealt with to ensure that Reverend Diaz is comfortable.” Yes, we wouldn’t want to do anything to upset the good reverend.
