Conservative businessman Carl Paladino is opposed to gay marriage in New York State. But because Paladino favors Initiatives and Referendums, he has proposed it be put to a vote and would abide by the result as Governor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOnNXQ71m4 Paladino may have a point. If the New York Legislature won't give New Yorker's marriage equality, polls show the voters will. I say Initiative and Referendum now.
