McCain Ladies Surprise Country With Gay Marriage Support
January 22, 2010
U.S. (ChattahBox) – In a move that has caused a number of raised eyebrows, Cindy and Meghan McCain, the wife and daughter of Senator John McCain, have posed for the website and gay rights group NOH8.
The photos and support put them in direct opposition with Senator McCain and policies of the Republican party, and show the vast change in direction that many more moderate members have taken in recent years.
The appearance of the two women at the NOH8 shoot was shocking for the photographers, especially of Cindy McCain, who has shown a streak of defiance for the beliefs of her husband.
“We were shocked,” Adam Bousk, the photographer who did Cindy said. “We were in the studio from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. together, so it was really clear she understood [the issue].”
The photographer also said that John might be singing a different tune on gay marriage as well.
“Um, I got that impression. I don’t know that I should speak much about it, but I definitely got that impression.”
McCain denies this, and says that he still supports the controversial Proposition 8.
But the Senator’s years in politics have been riddled with confusing and sudden shifts in beliefs, policies, and platforms, including a sudden shift from Moderate to extreme Conservative during the past election.
Maybe we can see his next back flip on this issue soon.
