Village Voice On Christine Quinn

JMG reader Steve Weinstein has written a lengthy look at the LGBT detractors of NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn's mayoral candidacy.  An excerpt: 
At her public appearances, on the web, in social media, and in the pages of newspapers from the Daily News to Gay City News, Christine Quinn is being subjected to a protracted ideological litmus test. But no one is questioning whether she's gay enough: She married Kim Catullo last May and frequently takes her to campaign stops—in Staten Island, no less. No, what's at issue on Facebook groups like "Queers Against Christine Quinn" and "Defeat Quinn" is whether Quinn is enough of a liberal to carry the Democratic torch.
There are a few quotes from me in the piece.
