Former Pres. George H.W. Bush Official Witness at Same Sex Wedding

Former President George H.W. Bush served as an official witness to a same sex wedding ceremony on Saturday in Kennebunkport, Maine. Bush, along with his wife Barbara, participated in the wedding of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, who, a Bush spokesman said, are friends of the family.

On Sunday, a photo posted on Thorgalsen's Facebook page showed Bush signing the couple’s marriage license with the caption: "Getting our marriage license witnessed!"
