Vote for Monserrate And Against ‘Immorality’?

An interested reader emails this flier that was being distributed in Jackson Heights yesterday, urging people to support Hiram Monserrate because he opposes same-sex marriage.

“Let’s Vote NO to Immorality, and YES for the Defender of Our Christian Principles,” the flier says. 

Monserrate has always characterized himself as a progressive Democrat, but defended this not-progressive position this morning, telling Brian Lehrer, “It was a politically difficult thing to do,” and “people should at least give me credit for that.”
