Rosie O'Donnell's gay brother is star plaintaff in gay marriage ban
Rosie O'Donnell's brother will be the star plaintiff in a new lawsuit aimed at ending New York's ban against same-sex marriage, the Daily News has learned. New York Assemblyman Danny O'Donnell, D-Manhattan, and his partner will join a constitutional challenge to the law that the New York Civil Liberties Union will file today. The lawmaker is in political lockstep with his sister: The former talk-show host recently wed her longtime partner, Kelli Carpenter, in San Francisco. "This is really the first case that is statewide in scope," NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman told The News. "This will be a frontal attack on the validity of the discrimination in the New York state marriage law," Lieberman said.

...there's no genetic link damn it! Pat Robertson wouldn't lie to me!

Geez, two people "chose" to be gay in the same family. What are the odds of that? :crazy:
