She was against it before she was for it.

Swerengin Voices Support for Gay Marriage

Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin has announced that she now supports gay marriage. Swearengin, a Republican who is running for state controller had been a supporter of Proposition 8. She announced her new position last week at a meeting of an LGBT conservative group in Southern California.


Swearengin: "It's not been a focal point of my campaign. it's unlikely I would ever have any opportunity to address the issue as state controller. So for the most part I'm staying focused on the two issues I'm campaigning on, the fiscal health of the state and economic development throughout California."

In a written statement released this week Swearengin said she recognizes that same sex marriage is now legal in California and that it is "time to move beyond this issue."


When she had to kiss up to the local religious right goobers she was a staunch supporter for Prop. H8. But because California's Republicans can't be quite as fanatical as their brethren in the rest of the nation (for example, you cannot run for statewide office, be anti-choice and expect to win), she's done 180 degree turnaround.

It's a miracle I tell ya!

2. Betty Yee, I think ...

has this job and I think as long as she wants it. She is a fantastic candidate and hopefully folks will get to know her story, soon?

Course having demos in the power structure in Sacramento hasn't hurt much lately.
