NY Senate Leader Taking Steps To Save Sen. Grisanti, Now Vulnerable Because of SSM Flip-Flop

 

Actions speak louder than words, and the actions of New York Senate Leader Dean Skelos show that he's worried that Sen. Grisanti will lose re-election next November:

...Republican Senators are also reportedly cutting predominantly black churches out of Senator Mark Grisanti’s Buffalo district so the churches there can’t hurt him after his vote for same-sex “marriage”. Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos traveled to Buffalo last month in an attempt to secure the Conservative line for Grisanti ahead of next November’s election, despite Grisanti’s flip for gay “marriage”.

Republicans are trying to have it both ways. They’re clearly more concerned with retaining their power, than in protecting the values of their base. The Democrats really aren’t any better. It isn’t new, but it isn’t right. At New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, we're disappointed with both major political parties. They've each forgotten they’re elected to represent their constituents, not their colleagues. -- New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms
