Republican State Sen. Roy McDonald is one of the few members of his party currently backing an initiative to legalize gay marriage in N.Y. State.
Today, in response to pressure from some conservatives opposed to the measure, McDonald gave a tremendous statement in his own defense.
According to the The N.Y. Daily News, the 64-year-old said THIS:
"You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing."
"You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, f--k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."
"I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can all take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background."
"I'm trying to do the right thing. That's where I'm going with this."
Somewhere, former Super Bowl hero David Tyree is very upset.McDonald's support for the potential gay marriage bill leaves it only ONE vote shy of having enough support to be made into New York State law.
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg - an outspoken gay marriage advocate - visited Albany today to try to persuade a handful of undecided senators.
Regardless of your political persuasion or stance on this issue, you gotta love a politician who will straight up defy the often-polarized system.
If only more had the guts to stand up and just say f--k it!
