From The New York Post :
Two Republican state senators who voted against gay marriage are collecting the same hefty campaign contributions from Mayor Bloomberg as the four who bolted their party to pass the historic law that takes effect today.
Campaign records show that Bloomberg, who castigated opponents of same-sex nuptials as "obstructionists," delivered $10,300 to Brooklyn state Sen. Marty Golden on July 11.
That represented nearly 20 percent of the $54,550 Golden's campaign took in over the last six months.
Not only did he steadfastly oppose the new law, but Golden even tried to overturn an executive order that permitted New York to recognize gay marriages performed in other states.
"I believe personally it shouldn't be done here in the state of New York," he declared in May.
A mayoral aide said Bloomberg would also be sending a $10,300 check to Staten Island state Sen. Andrew Lanza, another Republican in the anti-gay-marriage column.
Last week, The Post reported that the mayor gave $10,300 to each of the four Republicans who took the political risk of backing marriage equality.
That put him in the funny position of rewarding both backers and opponents of the law.
"No one agrees on everything," a mayoral aide commented.
Golden and Lanza, as the only two Republicans representing the city in the Senate, are frequently called upon to push the administration's agenda in Albany, the aide said.
"While there was no quid pro quo, Marty Golden carried the taxi bill for us. I'm saying there are lots of issues."
The bitterly contested taxi legislation -- which Gov. Cuomo has yet to sign into law -- would establish a new system of metered cabs serving the outer boroughs.
