    Washington – Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been honored for his advocacy of marriage equality in New York at a Washington, D.C. awards dinner headlined by President Barack Obama.

    Bloomberg was presented Saturday night with the National Ally for Equity Award from the Human Rights Campaign, a major gay rights organization.

    In his acceptance speech, the New York City mayor praised the President and Congress for winning the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for gays in the military. He also said the question is not if marriage equality will come to all 50 states, but when.

    Bloomberg was a big backer of a law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in June making New York the sixth and largest state to allow gay marriage.

    1. How shallow can you get?
      A new award? When did they make up this one?
      The “National Ally for Equity Award” for people that need to be ‘bought’ by Ossama?
      I thought you had more brains than that Bloomie.
      For shame!
