goodbye, statewide office.

San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom was getting enough attention (not negative, but not exactly great) for dating a 20-year old restaurant hostess named Brittanie Mountz (insert your preferred joke here) after divorcing his newscaster wife (who got knocked down a couple pegs on the "hot" chart after going to Faux News to work), but this week's revelation that he had an affair with his former campaign manager's wife damn near ensures Californians will hear these words come 2010: "Your new governor, Antonio Villaraigosa!"

It's not necessarily the affair itself -- I doubt you could find anyone who cares about politicians getting some on the side any more -- but it's this:

1) Ruby Rippey-Tourk is not only his ex-campaign manager's wife, but was also Newsom's secretary -- and there are laws on the SF books against this.
2) He just fucked his best (political) friend's wife.

Never mind statewide office -- it turns this fall's mayoral race in SF into an actual race.
