Lizzy lied to get gay vote
When asked about gay marriage at yesterday's Queens Tribune round table discussion, Elizabeth Crowley stated she was against gay marriage. Which is the complete opposite of what was told to the Lesbian and Gay Democratic Club of Queens in order to get their endorsement. They were duped by their own district leader, Daniel Dromm. Crowley committed to put the club's logo on all of her literature but has failed to do so. The Lesbian and Gay Democratic Club of Queens does not give support to any candidate that does not support gay marriage and place their logo and name on their literature. In addition, Crowley had sent Alyson Grant, her campaign manager, to the endorsement meeting. She stated that she had not discussed the 3 major issues that were important to that Club with Elizabeth even though she had a copy of the questionnaire in advance and purposely failed to fill it out.
From Gay City News:
Pauline Park, a gender rights activist and Pride House co-founder, was harsh in criticizing the gay Democrats' endorsement, saying, "It's really hypocritical and extraordinary that they would not endorse a qualified gay candidate especially when they endorsed a candidate who has no apparent qualification for public office at all except that she's the cousin of the county boss."
