Your Phone Calls Are Pissing Off NY Sen. Diaz

“A dissident Democrat who sought to block the legalization of gay marriage says he’s being threatened by gay advocates. Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. of the Bronx, a minister, says the gay community is jamming his office phone and making threats to him and his staff. He also lashed out at newspaper editorial boards that have been critical of his efforts that could deny Democrats a majority and called political commentator and former New York City Mayor Ed Koch a rat. Diaz says he will either join the Republicans, stay neutral to create an impasse, or join the Democratic conference.” [AP]
