Republican Leader Says New Yorkers Don't Care About Gay Rights!
That's right, folks.
The interestingly named Ed Cox, who is the New York State GOP chief, told CNN that, heck, Carl Paladino apologized for his remarks about gays, and besides, "That's not what the people of New York State really care about."
Got that? Cox basically added insult to injury by sweeping aside the blurted bigotry and saying New Yorkers don't care about civil rights anyway -- they only care about the economy!
As if intelligent, feeling people can't have more than one issue on their minds.
Can you believe the gall of this enabling miscreant?
Watch the segment all the way through and you'll see me beg to differ.
