With oral arguments on #MarriageEquality  set to begin today, the Supreme Court has an opportunity, once and for all, to guarantee equal rights and equal protection under the law for same-sex couples. I urge the Court to end this discrimination in all 50 states, and to stand on the side of dignity for all Americans. #LoveCantWait   #LoveMustWin

Years after the housing crash, abandoned foreclosed homes continue to be a blight on too many New York neighborhoods. Let’s finally put an end to the burdens placed on New Yorkers coping with high rates of foreclosure and demand that banks and other lenders take greater responsibility for properties that have been abandoned by homeowners.

Today's +New York Daily News editorial has an important message for the U.S. Senate: End the Loretta Lynch stonewall.

I agree: #LorettaLynch‬  is a "capable and effective advocate" who is more than worthy of the role as our chief law enforcement officer. It's time to #ConfirmLynch .

A big victory for New York workers today: My office reached settlements with 29 #Dominos​  stores statewide to return $970,000 to cheated workers. In the past two years, the owners of over 50 Domino’s franchise locations have admitted to violations of some of the most basic labor law protections – an appalling record of ongoing disregard for workers’ rights. #NYAG4Workers
