How about the fact the slick hair cheated with his best friend's wife and didn't have the guts to say anything until she came out of rehab which then saw Newsom going into rehab for alcoholism.
|Now, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is another example to study in the interplay of sex and politics.|
On Wednesday, the dashing, ambitious and hugely popular Democrat came crashing into a crisis. Alex Tourk, Newsom's buddy and campaign manager, abruptly quit after confronting the mayor about having an illicit affair with his wife, Ruby Rippey-Tourk, 34, who once worked as an appointment secretary to Newsom. Apparently, while in rehab for substance abuse, Rippey-Tourk told her husband about her affair with Newsom. Rumors about the apparently short-lived affair had been circulating for about a year, according to City Hall staffers. "I didn't pay that much attention," City Supervisor Tom Ammiano said. "I dismissed it."
But, on Thursday morning, Newsom acknowledged the infidelity and apologized at a hastily organized press conference at City Hall. "Everything you have heard and read is true," Newsom told reporters, responding to a story that was first broken by the San Francisco Chronicle. "I am deeply sorry." The 39-year-old-mayor also accepted responsibility for his "personal lapse of judgment." Then, he pledged to work hard at "reconciling" and regaining the trust of citizens and his staff. The briefing lasted just minutes.
I know that sort of stuff doesn't bother the valueless people of San Francisco since they reelected him. But you would hope people outside of the city limits have some sort of value system and think this guy has bad judgement and do you want him leading California?
He broke one of the top man rules around, he is a punk bitch that deserves nothing.
