    The move by Onorato clears the way for assemblymember Michael Gianaris, a staunch LGBT rights supporter, to run for the seat. He has voted for the marriage equality bill all three times it came under consideration in the state assembly.

    This is great news for New York. Now if we can only get the rest of those hypocritical democrats who voted against gay marriage in the state senate to step down and replace them with more open-minded leaders then gay marriage will finally have a chance of becoming the law of the land in the Empire State.
