New York City Mayor offers donation for same sex marriage

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is offering to match up to $250,000 of donations made by the end of the week to the campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state.

In a release issued today, Bloomberg said that he "does not believe that government has any business telling one class of couples that they cannot marry."

Washington United for Marriage has raised $10.5 million for its overall campaign. Preserve Marriage Washington, which opposes the law, has raised $1.8 million.
