Gay marriage voted down in NY

The State Senate needed 32 votes for passage and only received 24 in a vote held about 15 min ago.

The bill had previously been passed by the State Assembly and Gov. Patterson had pledged to sign it.

I was watching it live on the internet, so don’t have a news link yet.

Support had been fading with the economic doom facing NY and the recent failure to pass gay marriage in Maine.

A bit of good news.
