Journal News copy editor Frank “Buddy” Waller III, attended last Sunday’s Gay Pride Parade in New York City and tells me he had a great time.
Buddy reports that a number of politicians marched in the parade, including Jeanine Pirro, the former district attorney for Westchester County and the GOP candidate for attorney general. Buddy watched the parade across the street from the New York Public Library. Toward the end of the four-hour procession, Pirro strolled by.
“I wave my rainbow flag as a gesture of courtesy to a fellow Westchester resident. She sees me and breaks into a big smile and gives an open-arms wave of recognition, as if she knew who I was. In fact, we’ve never laid eyes on each other. This is another example of how much a part of a politician’s life acting has become.”
