AP: Gay Marriage Group Doubts Cuomo's Resolve


Via the AP:

There may be a crack in the united effort to legalize gay marriage in New York as a gay advocacy group on Tuesday questioned Gov. Andrew Cuomo's resolve to pass the measure he's called a top priority.

Queer Rising issued a joint statement with the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club in New York City criticizing Cuomo's comment last week that he won't bring the issue to the Republican-controlled Senate unless its passage is certain. The groups see that as a weakening of the effort by the popular Democratic governor, who has been closely allied with the Senate's Republican majority on budget and property tax cap initiatives.
