Marriage Equality, decided by a Legislature and signed by the Governor, is a possibility in New York in the next year if the Democrats are able to win back control of the New York State Senate. The measure has passed the House before, and will again in the upcoming session.

Supporters of a Republican in one of the most tightly watched races are using this as a wedge issue and putting out possibly illegal robocalls in the last two days.

A legislative win on marriage will permanently take away one of the arguments that the right uses all the time, that of "judicial activists." To win in a statehouse is almost as vital to the movement as maintaining the decision in California and preserving our ballot win in Arizona.

Joe Mesi is the candidate for State Senate that is being attacked for his support of marriage.

While it's late, there is still work to be done and therefore donations are still needed. This is a double opportunity - help the Democrats win the Senate and show the opposition that using the LGBT community as a wedge issue is an expensive mistake.

Donate anything you can - Joe Mesi for State Senate

Desperate acts by losing campaigns.

Agreed, however desperate acts have worked before. Willie Horton, anyone?
