Comptroller Bill Thompson likes Eliot Spitzer’s same-sex marriage bill.
From his office:
“Governor Spitzer’s action speaks volumes about his commitment to ensuring equality for all. There is no doubt in my mind that same-sex couples deserve the same legal protections as heterosexual couples in this state and in this country. The opportunity for gay and lesbian couples to marry is a fundamental issue of civil rights. How we choose a life partner should not jeopardize the status under law of that committed relationship.”
