Mayor Bloomberg brings unwrapped toys, bad jokes, and untruths to noble annual gay party to benefit poor children during the holiday season.
Last week-end, Mayor Michael Bloomberg showed up to a gay holiday party at Chelsea Piers organised and hosted by Robby Browne, David Tufts, and Chris Kann. Mayor Bloomberg donated several gay-themed toys to the charitable event.
"You should see what's in my closet," the mayor said, according to The New York Daily News.
Besides bringing toys and making jokes, the mayor told a glaring lie to the crowd, which The Daily News estimated to be over 2,500 people, mostly gay men. Here is what was reported :
''It wasn't all fun and games for the billionaire : He did take a moment to restate that he hopes to one day live in a city where marriage equality exists for everyone, causing the biggest uproar of clapping and yelling from the male-mob, among shouts of 'Bloomberg for President.' ''
All the festive celebrations are causing some reporters (like Brian Moylan) to forget, and some people (like Mayor Bloomberg) to lie about, the secret that Mayor Bloomberg would like to keep hidden in his gay marriage closet : the fact that in 2005 Mayor Bloomberg ordered lawyers for New York City to appeal the trial court ruling issued by New York Supreme Court Judge Doris Ling-Cohen, who decided that marrying the person of one's own choosing was both a privacy right and a liberty right.
If he really believed in marriage equality, why did Mayor Bloomberg appeal Judge Ling-Cohen's ruling ?
