The first I had heard of Mayor Gavin Newsom was a few years ago. He was the “daring” mayor who decided that he was above the laws of his state of California and began issuing marriage licenses to any who came to his court house. I believe Rosie O’Donnell was one of the ones that came to celebrate the first time in the U.S. that “gays could marry.”
The California Court System put an end to these shenanigans, but it was not until now that we see just how much sexual perversion had taken over this man.
Mr. Newsom was married to Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Fox News correspondent. For whatever reason, their marriage did not work (a sign of problems to come right there) and they were in the middle of a divorce when Newsom decided to seek sexual pleasure for a different source, his appointment secretary Ruby Rippey-Tourk.
The only problem is that Mrs. Rippey-Tourk (as her name implies) is a married woman. And to make matters worse, her husband, Alex, was Newsom’s deputy chief of staff before becoming his campaign manager for re-election.
For what it’s worth, Newsom has publicly admitted to the affair, and accepted the resignation of his campaign manager “with much sadness.” Obviously not enough sadness to prohibit him from violating someone else’s wife, but the formal kind of sadness.
To me, all of these things tie together. This man championed the right for homosexuals to have a moral right to a perverted sexual lifestyle, and he himself broke two marriage relationships. While I don’t hold out much hope that he won’t be re-elected as mayor because of the district, one could hope that someone who ruins three people’s lives of those closest to him, was proven not to honor vows (either his own or those of others), and shows disregard for the rule of law would not be considered to care for many thousand other people’s lives.
