The big news in the fight over Califiornia's gay marriage November ballot proposition is Newt Gingrich, who supports a "yes" vote, or the elimination of same-sex marriage. He wants you to vote yes on Prop 8 to "protect marriage," but like the San Francisco Bay Guardian said, he's a "three-times-divorced defender of family values." He has married and divorced three times over, twice dumping women after they were diagnosed with cancer or multiple sclerosis. Gingrich's YouTube ad can be seen here.
