Albany! LL Cool J Endorses Smith, Diaz Fights "Homosexual Marriage"
Meanwhile Gang of Whatever members Carl Kruger and Pedro Espada have been quiet during this festive holiday season, while Ruben Diaz has been flyering his constituents. Under the giant headline "NO to budget cuts and to homosexual marriage," Diaz defends himself from the pressure of several Democratic groups, including unions and gay political organizations. "They're going to learn that I don't bend under pressure," he told the Albany Times-Union.
The Governor, still looking for budget cuts from whomever runs the Legislature, is also looking for money from the incoming Obama Administration via a stimulus bill of the sort a Democratic White House might be expected to seek.
