NYS Senator Diane Savino Votes ‘Ay’.

The New York State Senate rejected marriage equality this afternoon, but it did not go down due to lack of eloquence:

    Savino was quite eloquent. I also want to point out that the black state senators represented well on this vote. Nine of the ten black senators voted in favor of the bill.

    • They’ve been representing elsewhere, as well. From TAPPED:

      It’s also worth noting that what’s happening in New York is taking place across a backdrop of LGBT rights gains in which black people are centrally involved, from marriage equality in DC, to the election yesterday of Simone Bell to the Atlanta City Council and November’s election of Charles Pugh in Detroit.

    THANK YOU for pointing that out G.D.

    I heard her on the Brian Lehrer show this morning and she’s absurdly smart. I wish I had the opportunity to vote for her.
