Actor John Slattery, who endorsed Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice last year for attorney general, is now apart of the Human Rights Campaign’s effort to legalize gay marriage in New York.
Slattery, who is best known as the boss at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce on AMC’s Mad Men, shot a video for the group, as have other celebrities.
“I’m a New York who supports marriage equality, because every family deserves the same protections,” Slattery says in the brief YouTube video.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said earlier this month that he wants the Legislature take up a gay marriage legalization bill this session. Democrats tried passing the measure in 2009, but it failed in the state Senate.
