Ruben's shown his beef; Fight Back NY to give him a grilling

by Jeremy Hooper

Why he needs to go:

Ruben Diaz for State Senate Committee
July 28, 2010

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

On Tuesday, September 14, 2010 primary elections will take place in the Democratic and Republican parties to re-elect or elect people to represent our community in the New York State legislature.

These election results will be vital to us as Christians and God-fearing people to keep our family, moral and traditional values that our ancestors left us and that the Bible teaches us.

Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate were instrumental in joining me to defeat the gay marriage bill in the New York State Senate. Today the State of New York does not have legalized gay marriage and we have to praise God and thank Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate.

They all risked their chances of being elected in order to take this stand.

We in the Christian community – and all God-fearing people – owe them our support, our respect and our help.

The homosexual community has targeted the three of them and put candidates – funded with money from the homosexual community – so their candidate can vote for gay marriage next year.

Therefore, I am counting on all of you to not only pray for Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate, but to also offer them all of the support and help that you can give during their re-election efforts or elections to another position.

As a State Senator, a Pastor, and a Christian, I need Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate back in the New York State legislature for next year when the gay marriage issue will take top priority in New York State. We do not have the luxury of losing these three legislators who have fought so hard for our family, moral and traditional values in the State legislature.


Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz

Who will work to do it:

Sen. Ruben Diaz has spent the last few years showing that he will stop at nothing to attack and insult LGBT New Yorkers. When we asked you to vote on which senators you wanted us to send packin', Diaz topped the list. We heard you. Now Fight Back New York is gearing up to build the case against New York's most notoriously anti-gay state senator.

Let's be clear - this isn't a typical Fight Back NY race. Ruben Diaz has an annoying political survival instinct, but we want to set the record straight. Fight Back New York can play a unique role in this race by showing in a very public and powerful way that Ruben is not just bad for LGBT people, he's bad for New York. In order to do this effectively, we need your help; we need more ammunition. We need to be able to show voters in his district that he does not represent their interests and is not fit to serve New Yorkers.

Ruben has a murky past, but what exactly is he hiding? Here's what we propose: Fight Back NY will hire expert political researchers to find every piece of information we can on Ruben Diaz. What he's said, how he's voted, what he's done, and what he thought he got away with. We'll post everything online, so Diaz's opponents, the media, and voters in his district will be able to use the facts against him in the primary.

But we need your help to do it. We're only 6 weeks away from the primary election - which will be the one real shot at getting rid of Diaz. Help us fund a search into Ruben's closet. We need to send a clear message to Ruben Diaz - and other senators who think like him: You can't vote and speak out against equality without paying a price.
Donate what you can today. We need your help to uncover the real Ruben Diaz.
