New York Marriage Equality Bill a Big Question Mark

VIA Stop a marriage referendum in N.Y.: Malcolm Smith for Majority Leader’, AFTER THE JUMP…

Monday, December 1, 2008

It’s time to flex your political muscles again. Program the following contact into your cell phone:

Senator Carl Kruger
Democrat, Brooklyn
Phone: (718) 743-8610

And just as you did two weeks ago with Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr., email that contact information to everyone you know in New York, everyone you now in the country, and everyone you know on Facebook, MySpace, or Friendster. Post it in every Facebook group. If you have a blog, post it. Post it in your status on Facebook and on Twitter. If you’re part of a wiki, post it there.

And while you’re at it, make sure nobody forgets Senator Diaz’s number – (718) 991-3161.

Then, starting today, start calling Senator Carl Kruger, and make sure everyone you know starts calling. And just as you did with Senator Diaz, in the most polite, respectful, non-argumentative way, I want you to tell whoever answers the phone that you are counting on Senator Kruger to be true to his party, the Democratic Party, and to support Malcolm Smith as Senate Majority Leader. Do not call to ask him to support marriage equality. Just remind him, he is Democrat, and it’s his duty to support the Democratic Majority Leader.


For two weeks you and thousands upon thousands of marriage equality supporters have called Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr. to tell him the same thing. It appears you’re beginning to have an impact. Read this note for the evolving story of Diaz and Smith:

Now, without taking the heat off of Senator Diaz, it’s time to focus that attention on Senator Carl Kruger as well and to show him how effective we can be.

Kruger, a Democrat from Brooklyn, another member of the so-called “Gang of Three” is also using his opposition to marriage equality to defend his stance against supporting Malcolm Smith.
