We're surrounded by GDINOs!

An e-mail circulating among NYC gay politicos of a poorly photoshopped wanted poster, attacks the many gay New Yorkers who recently endorsed the reelection of Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The image contains some familiar faces including Corey Johnson, Brian Ellner, Andrea Batista Schlesinger, Co-founders of Friends of the Highline: Robert Hammond and Josh David, Kelli Conlin, former Clinton aide Richard Socarides, and me. We're all GDINOs, Gay Democrats In Name Only, and wanted for treason against the LGBT Community for supporting Michael "Leviticus" Bloomberg.

We're lucky that the anonymous author, obviously ashamed of their design skills, is only going after gay Democrats. I'd hate to have both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama wanted for treason, after having said favorable things about Bloomberg in public. New York's openly-gay City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has, so far, refused to endorse a Democratic Candidate for Mayor. However, she did appear on stage with Bloomberg at last week's Gracie Mansion Gay Pride Celebration, a wonderfully fun and well attended BBQ. There sure are a lot of GDINOs.

A recent poll, showing the Mayor up 22% against the presumptive Democratic opponent, also had him leading with Democrats by 9%. Bloomberg is just 2 points shy of being the choice of a majority of New York City Democrats. Only 40%, the loyal Democrats, are voting for the party's choice.

It will be interesting to see in November just how many real, loyal, non-treasonous, Democrats will show up to vote for whoever that guy is running against Bloomberg.

  1. Yeah - I hope the NY1 Poll that said over 50% of those polled said 2 terms is enough, is correct. For people to vote Bloomberg is basically a vote against their own votes for term limits for Mayor.

  2. Wonder if the source is Alan Roskoff or someone inspired by his regular rants against "Michael 'Leviticus' Bloomberg" in the NY Blade?

  3. Good on the poster's creator for calling you out, RyanI! It has nothing to do with Bloomberg not being a Democrat and everything to do with democracy and term limits! If Giuliani did what Bloomberg and the City Council is doing, you'd be apoplectic, and rightly so! But you love the power and glory, so you'll suck the ass of whomever you think is gonna be the winner, won't ya!
