George H. W. Bush Attends Gay Wedding

Took place in Maine

George HW Bush has attended the same-sex wedding of two friends as an official witness.

The former US president and his wife, Barbara Bush, attended the ceremony at the weekend of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen in Maine.

Mr Bush's spokesman said he and Mrs Bush, who have ties to the area and own a compound in the coastal town of Kennebunkport, attended as private citizens.

The news became public after Ms Thorgalsen posted a photo on her Facebook account showing Mr Bush at the ceremony signing a piece of paper.

    Why is this picked up by a British source, is this an example of the American media ignoring it? Curious.

    Fun Fact: The married couple own a nice store in Kennebunk. I met Bush once when he came in looking for dog toys, seems like a decent guy.
