Buono’s Daughter Comes Out Against Christie

tessa bitterman, buonos daughterTessa Bitterman, State Senator Barbara Buono’s 23 year old daughter, sent a fundraising email to her mother’s supporters this morning where in she declared she is gay and blasted Governor Chris Christie for vetoing same sex marriage.

Growing up, my mom was always there for me no matter what. I’m gay and from an early age I felt free to express myself with my mother, knowing she would always support me for who I am.

As a gay American I have a stake in what our governor says about marriage equality. And I have been deeply shocked by Chris Christie. As governor, he has been a giant roadblock to New Jersey achieving equality for all. By failing to support marriage equality, Christie is blatantly delegitimizing an entire group of people.

I have also seen Chris Christie misrepresent himself as a moderate to New Jersey – that’s why it’s even more important to stop him before he takes his radical show on the road when he goes national after this election.

My mom is facing a huge deadline on June 30th at midnight. If we want to stop Christie – if we want to keep his politics of polarizing and dividing people from spreading beyond New Jersey – we’ve got to click here and donate to my mom’s campaign before the big deadline on Sunday.

Now that Christie is running for re-election, he is more than happy to try and portray himself as a moderate. But the truth is – his record scares me. It scares me because if he takes his brand of deception national, all Americans are in for a rude awakening.

It might not seem like a lot but anything you donate now will go a long way. Can you click here and donate today?



Bitterman, of San Francisco, California, is Buono’s daughter by her first husband, Lawrence Bitterman.

    They can’t help themselves: continue to polarize and divide us : highlighting all our victim-hood at all times: exploit minorities of any type for money and votes..same old playbook, now this one using her own child..Is anyone else completely fed up with the Dem/socialist play book?

    I don’t want to jump all over this young woman, she simply loves her mom. No problem with that- I love mine too.

    The problem is that everything she said was total BS. The people of NJ are more united than ever before. I have empirical evidence of this by virtue of CC’s poll numbers and all of the Dem endorsements.

    If anyone is polarizing and dividing people, isn’t it her mom? The numbers back me up.

    THAT was no surprise. Again, like “what next” said, this is the typical play book from the liberals, exploit all victims, even if it’s your own child.

    Oh and Tessa, Christie is a moderate.

    Why do the real “gay American women” never look like the ones from the movies?

    It’s funny how all you Republicans hate facts. Christie is no moderate.

    Why can’t a man or woman marry a different species? (A dog is man’s best friend!)

    Buono should be ashamed of herself. This kid is a mess, and mom is using her for a prop for an issue that no one could care less about. If you asked 100 people to rank the important issues in NJ, this one would come in around 184 behind the cost of salt water taffy and too many Steve Adubato commercials on NJN. If this angry lesbian wanted to help her mother, she would get her to break the unions, and get rid of prevailing wage, Abbott funding and COAH. For starters.

    @give me a Break – You are nothing more then a right wing nut who doe’s not know what they are talking about.

  11. @bill said at 9:02 pm on June 25th, 2013:

    maybe YOU should be looking in a mirror when you say “you don’t know what you are talking about”

    The Dumbos always use (insert victim of the day, children, ect) as props.

    Bill is a typical liberal democrat who can never refute facts or make the case for issues that dems love like prevailing wage, COAH or Abbott. Instead, they call names and run away. Just curious – are you also pining away for “marriage equality”?

  13. bill said at 9:38 am on June 26th, 2013:

    For a person not using a name. You talk a lot of BS,I support marriage equality who are you to tell a person who they can love? I also support a minimum wage increase.All you right-wing Republicans are the same only care about–YOU
