Cindy McCain endorses gay marriage
The wife of the 2008 Republican nominee for president, Cindy McCain, posed for an ad endorsing pro-gay marriage forces in California. The ad shows McCain with duct tape across her mouth and "NOH8" written on her cheek. NOH8 is a gay-rights group challenging Proposition 8 passed by voters in California which bans same-sex marriage. Her husband, Senator John McCain of Arizona, issued a statement saying he respects the views of family members but remains opposed to gay marriage.
