For those of you who’ve been floating in a sensory deprivation tank since last night, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom slept with one of his staffers, who also happens to be the wife of one of his best friends, his deputy chief of staff and his campaign manager. Here’s some video of the brief news conference this morning at which he owned up to it.

    God is good, everyone has something they have done in their life that they wish they could go back and change. And we all have some kind of habit that we don’t like. But but God is good and able to forgive us. Hold your head up high and don’t let nobody stop you from doing a good job now. That was the past. Take it one day at a time and work the program and you will do just fine. In AA you will find a lot of love. There we are the same and nobody looks down on you. Keep doing your job as mayor. And put God frist. And don’t worry about what others have to say, because that will throw you off from what you have to do for the city of SF. God Bless you. Just think, what would Jesus do? WWJD.
