Watch: Activists Confront NY Anti-Gay Marriage Democrat Joe Addabbo at His Birthday Fundraiser in Queens


NY State Senator Joe Addabbo had a birthday party/campaign fundraiser in Queens yesterday and several activists at Queer Rising crashed the party to remind Democrat Addabbo and his constituents of his "no" vote on marriage equality last December.

Yelled one activist: "Joe Addabbo, you took hundreds of thousands of dollars from the gay community based on a lie. You were promising votes for marriage. You lied to us!"

Addabbo told the activists they could stick around, though they were confronted by party attendees, one of whom yelled at them, "I want him to vote against gay marriage."
