For Immediate Release
State Senator Rubén Díaz to the Media: Please Quote Me Correctly
Albany, New York- State Senator Rubén Díaz released the following statement:
“I am amazed at how quickly I have been misquoted in the press regarding the issue of gay marriage.
“The press took one phrase from my comment and as a result it has appeared in this morning’s newspapers completely out of context.
“For the sake of accuracy, this is what I said:
“Because the Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo is making the Republicans do what the Democrats could not do when they were in the majority, the Republicans are bending to the Democratic Governor and gay marriage is inevitable in the State of New York.”
