‘The Point Is To Win a Vote’

Brian Ellner, who is leading the Human Rights Campaign’s push to legalize same-sex marriage in New York, pushes back against his former boss, Mayor Bloomberg, on when exactly there should be a vote on the measure.

In an email, Ellner said:

As Gov. Cuomo has made clear, the point here is not to have a vote; the point is to win a vote. That’s what all of our supporters including the New York Times, Mayor Bloomberg and a vast majority of New Yorkers are pushing for this Legislaitve session.

Cuomo told Fred Dicker this morning that–contrary to what the Times‘ implied–advocates are with him on not having a vote unless they can pass a bill. ‘The Point Is To Win a Vote’
