Villaraigosa Supports Marriage

Timothy Kincaid

October 13th, 2008

PolitickerCA is reporting that LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is increasing his effort to oppose anti-marriage initiative Proposition 8.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa jumped fully into the Prop. 8 fray Monday, sending out a statewide message via the Courage Campaign, a grass- and netroots activist organization, urging people to defeat the measure.

The popular Democratic mayor, who is thought to be actively considering a run for governor in 2010, also announced he was personally donating $25,000 to the effort directed at getting voters to reject the initiative that would permanently codify marriage in the California Constitution as being strictly between a man and a woman.

Thank you, Mr. Mayor for representing me and my fellow Angelinos in our efforts to retain our equality.

Orale! That’s FANTASTIC news!!! Kudos to Mayor Villaraigosa for his courage and his generosity! Especially considering the extreme homophobia and bigotry that exists within the Hispanic community. This will go a LONG way in supporting our cause and showing Hispanics the road to inclusivity.

California – Vote “NO” on Prop. 8!
Arizona – Vote “NO” on Prop. 102! AGAIN!
Florida – Vote “NO” on Amendment 2!

OMG!!! Here’s a guy who is fiddling while LA is in flames. He cheated on his own poor wife, after he paraded her around during the ‘see I have family values’ campaign for mayor.

Can you all say PANDER!!!
He’s bad karma for marriage people!

I wouldn’t vote for him if you paid ME. I’ll believe that pledge when it happens, he makes SO many empty pledges.

And even then, he’s dirty as the bottom of a mucker’s boot. So the money would be too.

Gavin Newsome sank us badly too with his own marital piccadillos.
These men are willing to fuck over anyone to get what THEY want.

Why should gay folks be any different?
