Alex Baldwin Takes Aim at Anti-gay Legislators with Fight Back New York Campaign

With less than two weeks left until the mid-term elections and LGBT rights being the political hot potato that no politician has the balls to stand up for, one New York State political action committee has a message for anti-gay legislators: There are consequences for standing in the way of equality.

Fight Back New York launched a celebrity-filled ad campaign this fall, using comedy to send a clear message to state senators who voted to defeat a measure that would have legalized same-sex marriage in the Empire State. "Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, the openly gay actor who plays one half of a gay couple on the hit ABC sit-com, appeared in a video where he says he's going to marry the man he loves next year. The only problem with that statement, aside from the legal obstacle, is that the object of his affection is Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin follows up with his own video response while lending his support to the effort to throw the homophobic bums of this year. This is just one of the reasons I love Alec "Daddy Bear" Baldwin.
