Lesbian SuperPAC Endorses Christine Quinn for NYC Mayor

LPAC offers an endorsement to Christine Quinn for NYC mayor today:

Quinn“LPAC is supporting Quinn because she supports the policies and holds values that matter to lesbians: fairness and opportunity for everyone, commitment to equal rights and social justice,” said LPAC Chair Sarah Schmidt. “As a values-based committee, LPAC works hard to elect candidates who champion issues that impact lesbians and our families: Quinn is a supporter of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, a defender of women’s rights, and an ally for social and economic justice. LPAC is proud to support her.”
LPAC will begin fundraising for Quinn today.
“As a New Yorker, I’m excited to support Chris because I believe she has the strength, the experience and the courage to lead on behalf of all parts of this city,” said LPAC Board Member Urvashi Vaid. “Quinn is a political leader who has stood up for women, LGBT people, and social and economic justice for all New Yorkers.”

    Twenty years ago I used to respect Urvashi Vaid. However, when she lies about Quinn by saying that she “has stood up for … economic justice for all New Yorkers”, I just cannot take it. Quinn has singlehandedly blocked a vote on sick pay for all workers in New York. How is that standing up for economic justice for all New Yorkers?

    Dykes supporting dykes. What else is new? Perhaps if women weren’t so hostile towards men (straight women are extremely homophobic against gay men and lesbians hate all men in general) perhaps NYC could have the male mayor it deserves.
