NY GOP state senators watch their donations increase after they vote “for” marriage equality

Gay rights advocates from Wall Street to Hollywood poured donations into the budgets of four little-known Republican state senators after the lawmakers provided the decisive votes for same-sex marriage in New York last June, according to new campaign finance filings. Independent Bloomberg co-hosted a fund-raiser for the four Republicans, and contributed $10,000 to each. Maryland, New Jersey, and Washington state are expected to consider marriage equality legislation this year.
