Spitzer To Post Gay Marriage Bill
Governor Eliot Spitzer has announced his plan to introduce a bill to legalize gay marriage in New York. The bill is not expected to pass. Same-sex marriage legislation has never made it to a floor vote in the New York Assembly or Senate. Still, marriage equality activists are heralding Spitzer's plan, saying his move will lend "strategic and symbolic weight" to the cause. From Spitzer on down, every statewide-elected politician in New York now supports same-sex marriage. It's the pesky local pols that are gumming up the works.
