Out of State & Downstate Gay Rights Donors Reward Sen. Grisanti for Betraying Buffalo Voters


LetThePeopleVote.comNY State Senator Mark Grisanti's campaign coffers are $50,000 richer since his June 24 flip-flop on marriage, according to the Buffalo News.

At least $42,000 of that comes from large downstate, out-of-state donations including....

$10,300 from New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who was a strong proponent of the new law, and $10,000 from Colorado resident Tim Gill, who heads a group that has promoted gay marriage laws here and in other states.

Other donors to Grisanti who have publicly backed gay marriage rights include $5,000 from Miami-area resident Jonathan Kislak, $2,000 from Carol Master of Massachusetts, $10,000 from Albany-area resident Frank Selvaggi and $5,000 from Manhattan real estate developer Donald Capoccia.
