Not to be anal but there are 11 members on the Board of Supervisors, not 9.
It was ConcordeBoy who called him McHottie. He has bad taste in just about everything.
Gavin Newsome shouldn't be arrested for this. How much time did Roy Moore serve?
I agree with TWFirst and Aaron747. They are standing up for what is right.
Gay marriage WILL be accepted and WILL be the norm in about 20-30 years. Newsome's move may not be that popular in Waco, Texas or Incest, Alabama but then again, Gavin isn't the mayor of those towns.
I have no doubt that Gavin Newsome WILL run for Governor at some point and this issue will not keep him from winning. This will only help his political career. This issue is gaining more and more attention and support for it increases the more people know about it. I know many people who voted Yes on Prop 22 but regret it and would vote differently if they had the choice again.
I am a straight guy who may end up married someday. I don't feel threatened by this at all.
Let the gays have there marriages!
I didn't vote for Gavin Newsome but I'll support him as long as he keeps his hands off of existing rent control laws.
Gavin needs to win over some liberal voters in S.F. to stay in office. Keep in mind folks, Gavin Newsome was the conservative
candidate in that recent mayoral race. There were three other candidates more liberal than him. I was for the centrist
Angela Alioto who didn’t make the runoff but does have a position in Newsome’s staff. He also appointed her niece Michaela to his old Board seat. Another great move on Gavin’s part.
Gavin Newsome had to bring in the entire Democratic Party big Whigs to win with only 53% of the vote.
Gavin Newsome brought in Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Gray Davis (still liked in SF
), Willie Brown, Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Tom Lantos and outspend Matt Gonzalez 30-1
, and used the race card at the last minute only to win by 6 points.
Willie Brown and his pals can only help so much. Gavin seriously needs to reach out to more liberal voters to stay in office in S.F. so he can further his career.
The gay marriage issue doesn’t piss off developers.
