Assemblyman Dov Hikind Uses Lady Gaga To Demonstrate Gay Marriage Opposition (VIDEO)

Brooklyn Democrat Assemblyman Dov Hikind is tired, apparently, of celebrities telling New Yorkers what the right, moral thing to do is in regards to gay marriage. And his example? None other than the Fame Monster herself, Lady Gaga.

During the debate on same sex marriage, Hikind held up some laminated, cartoonish picture of Gaga--who is a New York native an outspoken marriage equality advocate--and said sarcastically, "She is my example of how I should lead my life and how I should behave."

(And Albany, of course, always acts morally, ethically and never has any scandals.)

He then holds up what is presumably the Bible. "I wish it wasn't in the book," he says. "If it wasn't I'd be standing right next to you over there, pushing this, supporting it because there would be no reason not to."

It's ridiculous antics such as this that have stalled the proposed gay marriage bill, which before now had been gaining swift momentum. Now The New York Daily News reports that it's likely the senate vote on the measure will be pushed to this weekend or next week at the soonest.
