It never bothered former Mayor Gavin Newsom that his slick-back hairdo sometimes got more media attention than his policies. But Newsom, who is now lieutenant governor, says people need to tone it down when attacking a female politician's physical appearance — even Republican ones.
Newsom never seemed to feel devalued by the media's fascination with his perfectly coiffed hair. ( SF Weekly even participated in the 2009 Comb Your Hair Like Gavin Newsom Day.) But Newsom says that's different — he wouldn't stoop so low as to call out a lady for her potentially fake bosoms.
