Gay Marriage Advocate and S.F. Mayor Newsom: Miss California 'Being a Little Unfairly Maligned'
NewsBusters ^ | April 23, 2009 | Jeff Poor

The attacks on Miss California Carrie Prejean have gotten so bad that even same-sex marriage champion and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is taking notice.

Prejean, the runner-up of last Sunday's Miss USA pageant, has been the target of reports from the Hollywood media intelligentsia after her feud with gossip blogger Perez Hilton for the stance she took on same-sex marriage. And Newsom, who had just announced his intentions to run for governor of California, has noticed.

"I want to challenge her on her point-of-view," Newsom said in an appearance at Sapphire Energy, a bio-tech company, which aired on NBC's San Francisco affiliate on April 23. "She challenged me on my point-of-view and she spoke her conscience. What more can you ask? I speak my conscience, she should speak hers. So, I think she's being a little unfairly maligned."

The story of Sodom lays the foundation for all understanding of the homosexual dynamic.

When they don’t get what they want, they get violent.

Boy, if that isn't being overly generous... I didn't know Hard Copy and the likes of some confused tramp who calls himself Perez Hilton counted as "intelligensia." The bar has certainly been lowered, if not dismantled.

The mayor of San Francisco is known to appreciate the company of beautiful women. No doubt he’s got his eye on Miss California.

She’s much prettier and smarter than the “winner.”

Saw the winner on Fox today.

Nice, soon to be a trophy wife to a dentist somewhere.

I gotta just say, if I were gay (WHICH I AM NOT) she would be enough to change my mind. I would need lots of intensive therapy, but she could do it :)

There's a lot of criticisms one can level at Newsom, but his taste in women isn't one of them.

If that's the best the idiot mayor of Jerksville can do - he still trying to avoid alienating his fudge packing and carpet-munching pervert constituency...

Wow, that comment sure has a bite to it.

A little unfairly maligned? What would it look like if she was A LOT unfairly maligned? Her head on a pole?

This Newsome guy is a pussy, just like Obama.

I love the top pic. I don’t know if alot of other guys think this way, but to me a pair of jeans and a nice top is the sexiest thing a woman can wear.

A group of typical San Francisco Democrats gathers outside city hall to discuss Mayor Newsome's comment about Miss California.
