At an invitation-only panel today, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said that at the root of all opposition to marriage equality is a desire to discriminate against gay people:
CUOMO: Ultimately, there was no answer by the opposition. There isn’t! There really isn’t. And as soon as you ask the question, and you probe the answer, the only answer is ‘I want to discriminate against gay people.’ And that is anti-​New York, it’s also anti-​American.
