Remember Mindy Meyer, the self-declared “diva of the district” who is running for the New York state senate in a campaign that looks like a combination of Elle Woods and Paris Hilton? Well she’s giving interviews now and showing just how vapid she truly is.
YK: Do you have any friends who are gay or lesbian??
Mindy: I have a friend that actually works at the U.S. Attorney’s office and she said I have a very big gay following.
YK: Is that right?
Mindy: That’s what I’ve been hearing, you know, from the streets…
YK: Okay. So, let me ask you a question, do you support marriage?
Mindy: Um, I personally do not have anything against people being gay. I know my party line does not support it, but I definitely wouldn’t try to repeal it. I feel there’s other issues to focus on, so-
YK: So if I wanted to marry my partner, would you be against that?
Mindy: Again, I personally feel that it’s not a platform for marriage, I think marriage is between a man and a woman. But again, I would not go and repeal it. I feel there are more important issues to focus on in my district than — I really feel, personally, it’s within a person’s discretion what they want to do and I would not oppose that.
YK: So you wouldn’t oppose — if it were my discretion to want to marry a same sex partner, you wouldn’t oppose that?
Mindy: I’m not particularly for gay marriage, I’m just not against it. I’m saying, as I mentioned, I don’t necessarily feel it’s a platform for marriage, but again, it’s within a person’s discretion to decide what they want to do. Me personally, those are not my views.
YK: But let’s say, would you block–
Mindy: As I mentioned, I would not repeal it. I would focus my energies to other issues.
YK: So marriage equality is now legal in New York State, you would support and recognize that law as it stands today, meaning you wouldn’t try and overturn it and you would recognize it–
Mindy: I would just leave it alone, meaning I wouldn’t necessarily try and repeal it, but I wouldn’t necessarily vote for it.
YK: Okay, huh. And then let’s say that moved forward on a national platform, so now to try and repeal federal laws, if the people you represented, if the LGBT members of your community, asked you to support a repeal federal DOMA, is that something that you would do?
Mindy: Not necessarily, I am running on the Conservative Party line.
