Bronx Borough President & Son Of NY Sen. Ruben Diaz Endorses Marriage

"After considerable deliberation and introspection, I support marriage equality. My decision, which comes after years of thought and reflection on the issue, is informed by the experiences I have had with close friends, family and loved ones. For example, my chief-of-staff, Paul Del Duca, has for decades worked to help the people of this City. He has helped people find housing and jobs, he has dedicated his professional life to assisting those in need. Why, then, should he and his partner Damion—whose wedding I stood witness to—be denied the same rights of any other loving and committed couple? Moreover, why should my niece, Erica Diaz, be denied the ability to get married when her time comes?" - Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., writing on his official website. (Tipped by JMG reader David)

VERY RELATED: Diaz is the son of New York Senator "Reverend" Ruben Diaz, the only Democrat to vote against marriage equality in his chamber and the buffoon clown accomplice of NOM.  The elder Diaz has led two large anti-gay hate marches through the streets of New York City, the most recent of which literally ended on the steps of the Bronx Borough Hall, the location of his son's office. Erica Diaz, mentioned above, is the granddaughter of the elder Diaz.
