SAN FRANCISCO -- In the midst of an election year, Mayor Gavin Newsom's campaign manager Alex Tourk has announced that he will step down from his post.
SFGate.com reported Tourk resigned after confronting Newsom for allegedly having an affair with his wife, Ruby Rippey-Tourk.
The admission from Rippey-Turke came as part of a rehabilitation program she has been undergoing for substance abuse, according to sources to the paper.
Newsom refused to comment on the report, according to NBC11.
Rippey-Tourk, 34, was the mayor's appointments secretary at the beginning of his administration in 2004. She worked for the mayor until the spring of 2006, according to the paper.
"It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the Newsom campaigns and the city of San Francisco and its residents," Tourk said in a statement.

Anyone have pics of the wife and the other woman?
I get to guess first, the mayor is a rat, right?
I've always thought he was gay, and the wife and girlfriends were just beards.....this surprised me a bit.
So Tourk will be divorcing a wife who is a slut and druggie. Can't blame him. But the courts will still see him as the bad guy and will screw him over. I hope there are no children involved.

At least the Mayor wasn't doing her husband also.
Wonder if the Mayor had any of the substance she abused, as an enticement?
A little white line makes her go go go...........
Rats, fruits, nuts
Wasn't Newsome dating some 21 year old and taking her to public events where she was dressed like Britney Spears just recently?
I remember he also dated that greek actress from some law show on tv while seperated from his ex-wife.
No wonder he's so popular in S.F.
Ach, I'm sorry to say that there appears to be at least one very young child involved. I hope it was not affected by its mother's drug use. Very sad. What a stupid skank the mother is.
Who wants to be he still gets screwed in divorce court? Even though his wife cheated on him and is a drug abuser.
I bet if there was kids involved, the court would still give her custody.
This is great. It reminds me of scumbag Torricelli. He was doing the wife of his biggest contributor, a toy manufacturer. Not surprisingly, for the next campaign the guy supported the Torch's opponent.
You had to guess the Mayor of San Francisco is a democrat?
A Republican in that town would qualify as a zoo exhibit.
I am guessing women do pretty well in divorce court in San Fran.
Newsom is straight? Who knew.
Nope. Just a gullible reader. Newsome is gay (not a problem in SF), but wants to run for higher office.
The reason that the aide isn't upset is because the affair story is just to cover Newsome's gender calisthenics.
The mayor of San Francisco is having an affair with a WOMAN? What is he? Some sort of homophobe?
wow - no slamming newsom - just automatically slamming the female involved. How very FR.
