NY Senator Joseph Addabbo's B-Day Bash Disrupted by LGBT Protests | NowPublic News Coverage

New York State Senator Joseph Addabbo was among 8 NY Democrats who voted against the Marriage Equality bill in Dec. 2009.  This past  Sunday,  that came back to haunt him at his Birthday celebration and fundraiser  in Queens:  LGBT protestors showed up,  and yelled their protests.  
Call it fairness. Call it karma. Call it Joseph Addabbo getting a run for his money.
Members of the direct action group Queer Rising confronted Addabbo about the substantial financial and electoral assistance he received from gay groups in 2008.


Yelling  “Joe Must Go!” to a room that included the senator’s family, the gay advocacy protesters voiced their disappointment.  Some gays, though, have remarked that such tactics are unseemly, and work against the gay cause in the long run.  
NBCNewYork reached out to Senator Addabbo’s office, where he was not available for comment.
