Gingrich’s Dirty Laundry
January 19, 2012 by Sam Rolley
Tonight on Nightline, Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s second wife Marianne Gingrich may provide insight to some of the candidate’s personal baggage that his opponents are so fond of mentioning.
Marianne Gingrich said she is coming forward now so voters can know what she knows about her ex-husband, according to Global Post.
Newt Gingrich’s two daughters from his first marriage, Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman, sent a letter to ABC News saying that the media should focus on other issues, “ABC News or other campaigns may want to talk about the past, just days before an important primary election. But Newt is going to talk to the people of South Carolina about the future– about job creation, lower taxes, and about who can defeat Barack Obama by providing the sharpest contrast to his damaging, extreme liberalism. We are confident this is the conversation the people of South Carolina are interested in having.”
In an interview with ABC News, Marianne alleged that when she found out that Newt Gingrich was having an extramarital affair with his now-wife Callista, he asked if they could have an open marriage and said that Callista did not care what he did.
