“I’m tired of relying on straight politicians. No one would say to an African-American, ‘Don’t run; a white guy knows this stuff better than you.’ This is a hostage mentality. We’ve got the numbers and the resources to push the arc of history towards justice.” – Sean Patrick Maloney, openly gay New York State candidate for Attorney General. (via Pride Magazine) Mr. Maloney, I think with that you got my vote. Buh-bye Mark Green.
UPDATE: The Daily News speculates as to Maloney’s motives and notes that NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn, an out lesban, has endorsed Andrew Cuomo.
