Dov Hikind Hates Gay Marriage So Much He’s Willing to Suspend Party Allegiance


Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind, an outspoken Orthodox Jewish Democrat, is so opposed to marriage equality that he might back a Republican in the race to fill Anthony Weiner’s House seat. David Weprin, Hikind’s fellow Assembly Democrat, supports the right of gay couples to marry, and that’s a main reason he lost Hikind’s support for the Sept. 13 special election. Hikind, you may recall, recently wanted gay people and other non-Jews barred from recognition at a Holocaust memorial in his district. [NYP]
