Spitzer, Faso Clash On Gay Marriage
http://www.365gay.com/Newscon06/09/092706spitzer.htm

The first one-on-one debate in the race for New York State governor was filled with fireworks Tuesday night as Attorney General Elliott Spitzer unleashed a barrage of verbal missiles at his GOP opponent.

Spitzer is so far out in the polls the debate was considered "break or make for John Faso. But from the start Faso was on the defensive as Spitzer painted him as being so far to the right he is out of step with New Yorkers.

When the candidates were asked their positions on same-sex marriage Faso tried to claim some ground, declaring that Spitzer is "going to force gay marriage down the throats of New Yorkers."

"Let me respond to John without responding to his use of metaphors," a calm Spitzer replied. He then reiterating his pledge that he would propose legislation to allow same-sex couples to marry. Spitzer also said that if the Legislature passed its own gay marriage bill he would sign it.

1. Oh faso dying to have the bush base vote for him
"Force gay marriage." That's a chuckle ... A New York state of mind? faso would no doubt love to parade gays out on the town square and have them whipped and no doubt "conservatives" would vote for him for doing it.

2. Someone needs to tell Faso
he is campaigning in NY! This just isn't the vote getter here for him, the majority say gay marriage is fair.
I taped the debate last night because I was out and have to listen to it still.
