5 comments to NYS Senator Diane Savino Votes ‘Ay’.

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.
