NYC Mayor Bloomberg Is HRC’s Alleged Marriage Equality Advocate. Who’s Helping Elect Meg Whitman

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who the Human Rights Campaign lined up to star in its NY marriage equality videos, and who Richard Socarides keeps defending as a LGBT rights advocate despite Bloomberg’s suing to block same-sex marriage recognition, will join Meg Whitman in California to help campaign for a fellow billionaire who has made no secret of her disdain for letting gays steal the word “marriage.” The move is is fitting: Bloomberg, who spent $110 million of his own cash to be re-elected for a third mayoral term, was just beat by Whitman’s self-funding record of $119 million, and billionaires don’t let billionaire friends campaign alone.

    Are we surprised? HRC wouldn’t be able to collect money of gay marriage spreads.

    For Michael Bloomberg to be even considered as a “marriage advocate” is outrageous – are people that ill-informed? New Yorkers have Bloomberg to thank for not having same-sex marriage in New York state. Bloomberg contributed more money to anti-marriage Republicans running for the NY state legislature than any other single person.

    Michael Bloomberg was also AGAINST same-sex marriage for years and years and years – and only just recently made a sudden turn-around in favor of same-sex marriage when he HAD to do so politically.

    Michael Bloomberg has been no friend of the gay community over the years.
