Republican Senator: 'F**k It,' Gays Should Marry

6/17/2011 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Republican New York State Senator Roy McDonald has SHATTERED party lines in support of gay marriage -- telling reporters, "F**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

The battle rages on in New York to legalize gay marriage -- but McDonald threw his hat in the ring earlier this week ... with the greatest statement of all time, claiming, "You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing."

"You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, f**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

"I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this."

With McDonald's support, the gay marriage bill is only ONE vote shy of being made into law -- which would make New York the sixth state to legalize gay marriage.

Good for him!!! His constituents should be proud to have a man like him representing them. It's refreshing to see someone who votes their own convictions and not the party line.

Yes! "F*** it, do the right thing" Words to live by!

The more America continues to turn away from God and his teachings; we will continue in a downward spiral. We are slowly elimintating God from our country, and look at how we are declining as a nation.

Horrible of him to give up on his morals. He lost himself to being pushed around and bullied into a decision he is clearly not satisfied in making.

this is where the rubber meets the road. first and foremost, our reprenatives are there to REPRESENT US, not wildly and without concent of the people he represents (a majority)run off of the mouth how HE feels about something. the proper responce to any issue is to express what those he represents have indicated they want him to do! he is not following what he was elected to do unless he has the majority of those that elected him solidly behind his flapping mouth. if he is NOT representing the majority, time everyone write him demanding he either follow the voice of the people or resign!

OMG, a politician with scruples. I'm so sick of these Republicans and Democrats acting like gang members, like it's all or nothing or you can't be in our club. Maybe they should wear gang colors.

Whoever this man is, I applaud his honesty.

It's people like Kathy who crack me up..After watching a clown get elected to thw White House because mindless sheep saw a rock star, I have to ask who really are the smart folks..Would it be the liberals like Kathy who always tell us how smart they are? Liberal Arts degree I'm sure or a person that is not afraid to stand up and say I DON'T AGREE WITH AN ISSUE???

A turncoat bending (pun intended) to the powerful minority. His constituency needs to kick his obviously-worn-out ass outta office.

SICK B*STARD!
