Governor Andrew Coumo has repeatedly made his intention clear of forcing SSM through the Empire State's legislature, but he hasn't convinced everyone:
Just before signing off his show today, New York Post State Editor Fred Dicker threw cold water on one of Andrew Cuomo's stated goals for this legislative year.
After rattling of a list of Cuomo's goals, Dicker said, "The governor is also committed to same-sex marriage, but there is little I think he can do about that, as long as the Senate just doesn't have the votes to pass the measure."
Cuomo is reportedly looking for a vote on legalizing same-sex marriage by June. It's passed the Assembly by wide margins, twice. It was defeated in the State Senate two years ago, but since then, a number of people who opposed it have left, or signaled a possible shift.
