The Buffalo community is still reeling from the death of Jamey Rodemeyer, who was bullied for being gay, but the National Organization for Marriage is now bullying New York state Sen. Mark Grisanti (R) with a new billboard that simply says, “Mark Grisanti, You’re Next.” NOM has pledged millions of dollars toward defeating the Republicans who supported New York’s marriage equality law, but Grisanti has repeatedly said he doesn’t see the group’s efforts as a threat to his reelection. NOM has not commented on the billboard, but activists worry that with such little context, it could incite violence. WGRZ has a video report on the controversy.
