NY Senator Saland Calls Traditional Marriage Position "Extreme"

 

DiCarlo for New York Senate:

Last night State Senate candidate Neil Di Carlo overcame the efforts of the Dutchess / Putnam County Republican nominating machine which tried to deny a candidate choice to delegates assembled in a ballroom of the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel.

In a surprising forced vote following a severe three minute speaking restriction, Di Carlo, virtually unknown to most everyone in the ballroom, carried almost 25% of the vote, an unheard of victory in the tightly controlled political machine environment.

After losing the machine effort to deny exposure of the 250 plus Republicans to Di Carlo's short speech, 32 year incumbent Saland angrily characterized Di Carlo's support of traditional marriage as belonging to an "extreme" political party. Taking a page from the Obama White House, the avowedly left-progressive Saland sought to demonize Di Carlo for referring to Saland's traitorous vote for homosexual 'marriage' and refusal to support a referendum allowing voters to choose on the issue.
