Governor Vetoes Wildly Popular Bill to Spite Trump

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently vetoed a bipartisan bill giving all federal judges the ability to marry people because President Trump appointed some of them.

Per Mediaite:

The legislation was sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Liz Krueger and passed both branches of the New York State Legislature by wide margins. It passed the Democratic-controlled state Senate by a 61-to-1 vote and it passed the Democratic-controlled state Assembly by a 144-to-2 tally.

“I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this federal administration,” Cuomo’s veto message said, according to NBC News.

“President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers,” the Democratic governor added Friday. “The cornerstones that built our great state are diversity, tolerance and inclusion. Based on these reasons, I must veto this bill.”
