NY Sen. Savino Furious Over Fellow Democrat Admitting Investigation of NY SSM Vote Needed


PolitickerNY reports that someone isn't happy:

State Senator Diane Savino is furious with fellow Democrat David Weprin after he agreed with an interviewer who said there should be some type of inquiry into whether the State Senate violated its rules when it voted to legalize same-sex marriage.

“I was this close to writing a check to him and I tore it up,” Savino told me. “He knows damn well” rules were followed, she said. “He should just defend his vote.” Weprin, as a member of the Assembly, voted for the bill.

... Weprin is running for the congressional seat vacated by Anthony Weiner in the 9th congressional district covering parts of Brooklyn and Queens where there is a sizable Jewish population, some of whom oppose same-sex marriage.
