Sen. Schumer Flips To Support Full Marriage Equality

chuck-schumerSaid Schumer (D-NY):

It’s time. Equality is something that has always been a hallmark of America and no group should be deprived of it. New York, which has always been at the forefront on issues of equality, is appropriately poised to take a lead on this issue.

The Daily News reports that “with the ascent of Kirsten Gillibrand to fill Hillary Clinton’s vacant US Senate seat, Schumer was the last remaining statewide elected official who backed civil unions over full marriage equality.”

Really? The last statewide official?! Well, gee, let’s get our gay marriage on!

Schumer also said he supports the full repeal of DOMA.
