Log Cabin Republicans will honor New York’s top GOP lawmaker at an Albany fundraiser on Monday.
The group will honor New York Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) at the Brown Derby. The Long Island Republican is the only member of the Senate’s GOP conference who is thus far scheduled to attend the event that will raise funds for Log Cabin Republicans of New York’s PAC.
The fundraiser comes less than a year after the state Senate narrowly passed a bill that Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed that allowed gays and lesbians to marry in New York. Skelos is not among the four GOP state senators who supported the bill, but he announced at a 2010 Log Cabin Republicans fundraiser in Manhattan that he would allow his members to “vote their conscience” on the measure.
