Sen. Diaz says AP quote was completely out of context; proceeds to say exactly what they said he said

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember yesterday when we showed you the AP headline claiming that notoriously anti-gay NY Sen. Ruben Diaz, Sr. (D-Bronx) now admits marriage equality is inevitable? Right, so get this: The senator is now all kinds of mad at the AP for supposedly misquoting him. So Diaz has responded to that earlier report, by, uhm, well -- 100% confirming that he does in fact sees NY marriage equality as inevitable:

Albany, New York- State Senator Rubén Díaz released the following statement:
6A00D8341C503453Ef015433225A81970C“I am amazed at how quickly I have been misquoted in the press regarding the issue of gay marriage.

“The press took one phrase from my comment and as a result it has appeared in this morning’s newspapers completely out of context.

“For the sake of accuracy, this is what I said:

“Because the Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo is making the Republicans do what the Democrats could not do when they were in the majority, the Republicans are bending to the Democratic Governor and gay marriage is inevitable in the State of New York.”
State Senator Rubén Díaz to the Media: Please Quote Me Correctly [Ruben Diaz]

Thanks for clarifying, in complete context, Senator Diaz! We look forward to not having to quote you on this issue at all.
