Gavin Newsom's Divorce is Final!

It's official!! For those of you who don't know. Gavin Newsom is the Mayor of San Francisco. "Newsom gained international attention, and attracted controversy, in February 2004 when he issued a directive for the city-county to start performing same-sex marriages. Newsom claimed the California Constitution's equal protection clause as his authority to do so. About 4,000 same-sex couples were subsequently married in San Francisco until the weddings were stopped by the California Supreme Court on March 11. Some prominent Democrats such as Senator (and former San Francisco mayor) Dianne Feinstein and Representative Barney Frank argued that Newsom's actions doomed the party's Presidential nominee, John Kerry. No evidence has ever been put forward to support such claims."
He's sexy, he's bright, and he's progressive. Time for me to move my ass back home!!
