San Diego Mayor Has A Change Of Heart On Gay Marriage
San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders displayed a surprising change of heart on Wednesday when he signed a City Council resolution supporting a challenge to California's gay marriage ban. Sanders previously had gone on record saying he would veto the resolution. Sanders, who has a lesbian daughter and several gay staff members said, "In the end, I could not look any of them in the face and tell them that their relationships—their very lives—were any less meaningful than the marriage that I share with my wife Rana."
