Where are you on this Darrel?

Darrel Aubertine, conservative pro life Democrat, staunch Catholic, 4th Degree Knights of Columbus member (a Catholic organization) and one of us family values man will be quaking in his shoes when this vote arrives on the floor if the Democrats get control of the New York State Senate. He will either have to support this issue or risk being placed into political obscurity by Malcolm Smith and his colleagues. Darrel was one of the 61 that previously voted against this issue in the Assembly, will he remain consistent or buckle?


Here are some tidbits from the article that was posted on newZjunky.com.

"...same-sex marriage equality advocates are considering whether the current round of musical chairs will continue, in time sealing the success of their cause..."

"...When former state Assemblyman Darrel Aubertine, a Democrat from Cape Vincent - a town that straddles the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario - was sworn into his new seat on March 3 after a special election, he nudged the number of Senate Democrats to just one election contest away from parity..."

"...state Senator Malcolm Smith, a Queens Democrat who is the minority leader, pledged that marriage equality would be at the top of the agenda..."

This is Darrel's colleague who Darrel just joined in the self proclaimed moral caucus
"But Craig Johnson continues to be supportive of marriage equality."

"...Other current Democratic senators oppose the bill. Aubertine, who has taken conservative stances on religious issues, voted against the Assembly bill last year..."

And lastly, this Democrat is available for sale, he is said to be a possibility for switching over to the Republican caucus.

"...Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr., a Democrat and a Pentecostal minister from the Bronx, has long been an opponent of same-sex marriage, and said he might not support a Democratic majority leader if same-sex marriage were at stake..."
