Gillibrand phones for gay marriage -NY Daily News

There are a finite number of New York politicians that I like. That said, I don't dislike Kirsten Gillibrand.

The Daily Politics - NY Daily News:
"Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has put LGBT issues on the top of her 'to-do' list as she works to shore up her liberal credentials, has placed personal phone calls to on-the-fence Democratic state senators in hopes of getting them to vote 'yes' on gay marriage.

Gillibrand's office confirmed calls had been made, but refused to say who the recipients had been or if anyone had specifically asked the junior senator to weigh in.

'She made calls, yes; and they were private conversations,' Gillibrand spokesman Matt Canter said. 'She did it because it's an issue she cares deeply about.'"

More reason to like Gillibrand.

I really like Gillibrand. She seems to be firmly and fully for equality for LGBT people -- she even said LGBT rights are the civil rights movement of our time.
