The Rev. Salvatore Cardileone, the bishop of Oakland whom the Pope picked as the next Archbishop of San Francisco, was arrested early Saturday in San Diego and accused of driving while under the influence.
Cardileone is well-documented for his efforts to raise money in the effort pass California’s Proposition 8, which took away marriage for gay and lesbian couples. He helped to create the initiative, and rallied Catholics to support Prop 8 through donations and at the ballot box. The Associated Press reported that Cardileone gave at least $6,000 of his own money, according to campaign finance records.
