O’Donnell Responds To Gillibrand Pick

“I know Kirsten Gillibrand very well and worked for her election to Congress. She has been a steadfast supporter of equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals and same-sex couples. I am optimistic that her appointment to the U.S. Senate and her voice in that body will further our community’s cause and bring us that much closer to full inclusion and marriage equality.” – Openly gay NY Assemblyman Daniel O’Donnell, who was also up for the job, responding to my request for a comment on Gov. Paterson’s pick of Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand to replace Hillary Clinton.
