WEINER PRAISES CALIFORNIA'S SUPREME COURT DECISION TO ALLOW MARRIAGE EQUALITY

Representative Anthony D. Weiner (D - Brooklyn and Queens) today released the following statement commending California's ruling to allow same sex marriages.

"I celebrate the California Supreme Court's historic decision in favor of marriage equality. As someone who has long fought against discrimination, I believe that the time has come to extend to all Americans the fundamental right to marry the person of their choosing, regardless of sexual orientation."

"I join Governor Paterson and my fellow Democrats in the New York State legislature in looking forward to the day when New York reasserts its rightful place as a national leader on civil rights and extends full marriage equality to all of our citizens."

Rep. Weiner has supported marriage equality since 1998 when he first ran for Congress.
