In 2009, moments after Senator James S. Alesi, a Republican, voted against gay marriage, he received a one-word text from a Democratic colleague, Senator Diane J. Savino, who represents parts of Staten Island and Brooklyn.

“Why?” she asked.

On June 13, a few hours after Mr. Alesi had declared his intention to reverse himself and vote for the bill this year, he received a new text from Ms. Savino.

“Thank you.”

Regarding this douchebaggery…
“Knowing that marriage equality was likely to pass, I thought it  important to force the issue of religious protections. Over the past few  weeks, I’ve had the distinct opportunity of listening to literally  thousands of residents, on both sides of this issue, by holding an  undecided stance. I thought it was important to listen to all of my  constituents and hold an undecided position until the actual bill  language was written and everyones voice had been heard. Now that the  final text is public, I am proud that I have secured some strong  protections for religious institutions and basic protections for  religious organizations. The bill still lacks many of the basic  religious protections I thought were vital, and for this reason, and as I  did in the Assembly, I will be voting no.” (Senator Greg Ball)

Brand this douchebag a douchebag.

WHAT A DOUCHEBAG.
