NYDN’s Elizabeth Benjamin — who recently wrote about AKA William’s political director Allen Roskoff’s confronting of no-voting New York state senator Carl Kruger — today is writing that unnamed LGBT activists are promising to do everything in their power to get rid of the eight back-stabbing Democratic New York state senators who voted against marriage equality:
“It’s going to be a bloodbath,” one gay operative predicted. “We’re going to use every single weapon in our quiver to take these people out. We either need to replace them or scare the hell out of them so they do the right thing.”
Gay activists are considered some of the most effective fund-raisers in state Democratic political circles.
“The community is apoplectic … and the commitment to building the Democratic majority is over,” the operative added. “We won’t make the same mistake twice.”
We sure won’t.
