We came across this not so recent (but still scorching hot) photo of Mayor Gavin Newsom here. It looks like it might have been snapped back in the day when he was hitting the Shiraz too hard.

Is it real? Is it photoshopped? Do we care? It's stunning. We want to frame it and blow it baby kisses every night before bed.

And just in case any of you Newsom haters out there think that he's acting sleazy in this image -- which, by the way, he is not; men have the right and instinct to ogle women (or other guys), and vice versa -- he isn't. Maybe he's looking at her there for...any number of reasons.
