Spitzer hits the national news – again

Well, I’ll give it to Spitzer – he knows how to keep himself (and by extension, the city I live in) in the national spotlight. This time, he’s unveiled a bill to legalize gay marriage. Of course, Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno (R) has accused Spitzer of having his priorities wrong, saying that instead of overhauling the state’s campaign finance laws and promoting gay marriage,

Spitzer should be worried more about bringing back the death penalty for those who kill police officers and creating jobs.

Of course, as Bruno was saying this, Spitzer was off to talk economic development, so… take his objections as you will.

Personally, I think anyone who wants to get married in a state that doesn’t have no-fault divorces is insanely optimistic, but that’s just cynical moi.
