What a SOB.
I'll gladly help donate to anyone looking to unseat Addabbo and Montserrate who were the biggest rats. But it looks like Hiram is going to jail first tho. They hate rats even more in prison.

Get that MF outta office!! whether he knows it or not, he has potentially made a career suicide, for he will now be known as a turncoat and cannot be trusted to support his supporters. Can we get someone to replace his ass in ther?? Like today??!!

Nathan James

Sen. Smith, who represents my neighborhood of St. Albans, had the courage to support the gay-marriage initiative, despite the fact that St. Albans is both highly conservative and homophobic. My hat is off to him for that!

Contrast this with Sen. Addabbo, who is a darling of white Queens and contrary to his remarks today, campaigned on a platform which included support fot LGBT issues. When Addabbo was running for the Senate, he made a point of courting gay benefactors such as Gill, and appeared at Queens Pride.

I urge all New Yorkers who read Rod 2.0 to remember the "Discrimin-8" Democrats in Republicans' clothes who voted against us on this critical human-rights issue. rod has posted their names on this blog, and all of them are up for re-election in 2010, except for Hiram Monserrate, who may no longer be serving as a Senator by then.

Chris Cruz

This man is despicable. He campaigned on our issues and turned out to be yet another turncoat.

You will be primaried, Joey. mark my words.

Pat Lewis

The only good thing that came from Addabbo's vote against the Gay Marriage bill is that all of us will vote him out of office next term! If people can votte against basic civil rights for everyone, than we must use the action of "an eye for an eye," I say. It's the only thing that bigots understand.

Mad Professah

The general election is 9 or 11 months away.Y'all have late primaries in NYS (September, right?). I think he should be taken out in a primary with another Democrat who commits to voting for marriage equality and other issues of importance to the district.

Addabbo needs to return the money he received from LGBT Organizations. He did not serve the cause to any LGBT's in NY, including his district. He should return the Money now!

libhomo

There's nothing new about the HRC giving money to homophobic politicians. The queer community needs to set up an alternative political action committee to the HRC which actually cares about the queer community.

dt

This is a primary reason why the LGBT community has to be more careful about who we throw our support behind and whose pockets are money is being placed in. Year in year out we have folks appealing to us, saying they're on our side, they work for us too, they'll champion our causes and fight for us and time and time again they throw us away AFTER they've gotten in office and AFTER they got all the money they could out of us. We have to start picking people who have a proven credible history of support for our community and stop supporting people who won't support as as well.
