Some Members Quit as Stonewall Democrats Stand By Stringer

Several members of the Stonewall Democratic Club of New York City quit in disgust after the club voted to uphold its endorsement of mayoral candidate Scott Stringer.

The club held an emergency vote on May 5 to ask members whether they wanted to pull the endorsement of Stringer in the face of sexual misconduct allegations. In order to rescind the endorsement, however, the club needed two-thirds of its members to agree — and that didn’t happen.
