#NY26: NOM $6,000 poorer, congressional equality caucus one vote richer

by Jeremy Hooper

Two equality related points about last night's Democratic win in New York's traditionally GOP-leaning 26th Congressional district:

(1) The National Organization For Marriage spent close to $6,000 pushing for Kathy Hochul's oppoent, Republican Jane Corwin.

(2) Corwin also recently spoke, rubbed shoulders, and recruited votes at something called "Picnic in the Park" -- a party that was thrown by New York's leading anti-equality lobby group, the New Yorker's Family Research Foundation:

The same National Organization For Marriage that fights daily to keep anti-gay discrimination alive in our nation's civil laws. The same NYFRF that distributes church bulletin inserts claiming that homosexuality is 'perverted & twisted' and will lead to 'destruction of your immortal soul'; whose president, Rev. Jason McGuire, has likened marriage equality to child abuse, blamed this whole fight on Satan, and claimed that he's in this to save people like Sen. Tom Duane and Assemblyman Danny O'Donnell (both gay) from "an eternity in Hell":; and whose senior lobbyist presents this whole civil rights conversation as a war, churches as recruiting stations, and the Bible itself as a weapon meant to clobber certain kinds of humans.

Congratulations, Kathy Hochul! Congresswoman-elect, Hochul.
