If marriage is such a big factor in NY-9...

by Jeremy Hooper

…then why doesn't state Assemblyman Dov Hikind -- a man who is on record likening same-sex marriage to incest and who is featured in the National Organization For Marriage's mailers -- mention the issue even once in his official campaign robocall?

Why not? Because as stated in the last post: The "it's all about marriage" contingent is small, largely manufactured, niche. Hyper-motivated and wringing every last ounce of that "just enough" power, yes. But the marriage factor is not the major issue that NOM wants it to be. Not with most New Yorkers its not.
