David Norris Withdraws from the Presidential race
So, Ireland's favourite gay man has withdrawn from the race to be President after it emerged that he wrote a letter as Senator to an Israeli court, seeking clemency in a homosexual statutory rape case against a former partner of his.

So its too bad I reckon David Norris woulda been a good president but the oul position was a but untenable.
How would the other world leaders welcome him, when they knew his past? Don't think it would be good and he did the best choice, by pulling out.
