Quote Of The Day - Cory Booker

"I shudder to think what would have happened if the civil rights gains, heroically established by courageous lawmakers in the 1960s, were instead conveniently left up to popular votes in our fifty states. Equal protection under the law – for race, religion, gender or sexual orientation – should not be subject to the most popular sentiments of the day. Marriage equality is not a choice. It is a legal right. I hope our leaders in Trenton will affirm and defend it." - Newark Mayor Cory Booker, blasting Gov. Christie's plan for a marriage referendum.
