Sex, Lies, and Mayor Gavin Newsom

July 27, 2008

Apparently San Francisco Democratic Mayor Gavin Newsom prefers homosexual marriage to heterosexual unions. Already outed as a cheating husband, and with a messy divorce behind him, Mayor Newsom got caught with his instrument of lust inside a married woman’s skirt.

(Update July 27, 2008): Much has happened since this article was published. Gavin Newsom is now married to actress Jennifer Siebel.

And this married woman, Ruby Rippey-Tourk, happens to be the wife of his best friend and long-time political aide Alex Tourk. And to top it off, she was Newsom’s secretary. Tourk confronted Newsome in a surprise meeting on Wednesday and resigned on the spot. Inside reports are that Newsome is reeling from getting caught with his hand in his best friend’s cookie jar.

See the sordid details in the San Francisco Chronicle.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s re-election campaign manager resigned Wednesday after confronting the mayor about an affair Newsom had with his wife while she worked in the mayor’s office, City Hall sources said.

Alex Tourk, 39, who served as Newsom’s deputy chief of staff before becoming his campaign manager in September, confronted the mayor after his wife, Ruby Rippey-Tourk, told him of the affair as part of a rehabilitation program she had been undergoing for substance abuse, said the sources, who had direct knowledge of Wednesday’s meeting.

Rippey-Tourk, 34, was the mayor’s appointments secretary from the start of his administration in 2004 until last spring. She told her husband that the affair with Newsom was short-lived and happened about a year and a half ago, while the mayor was undergoing a divorce from his then-wife, Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, said the sources, who spoke on condition they not be identified.

Alex Tourk “confronted the mayor on the issue this afternoon, expressed his feeling about the situation in an honest and pointed way, and resigned,” said one source close to Tourk and his wife.
