Newt Gingrich and Marriage [POLL]
Now that Newt Gingrich is leading in many polls the target on his back will get bigger. And one of the first shots rang out yesterday. Rex Andrew has brought it up on the show, and now others are as well. Newt Gingrich and marriage. The Huffington Post and Politico both reported on flyers circulating from an Iowa Christian group.
Gingrich also told HuffPost that he was aware of a flyer being distributed in Iowa that attacked him for previous infidelities, an incident first reported by Politico, but he brushed it aside.
“Look, this is a free society in which various random strangers can do many things,” he said. “And I think if you read the flyer, it was clearly written by a random strange person. I don’t worry very much about what happens in a free society.”
The flyer purports to have been paid for by Iowans for Christian Leaders in Government. When asked a second time if he thought a political opponent or rival campaign had designed the flyer, Gingrich said, “It was worded too badly. None of the campaigns I know would have written it that badly.”
Gingrich spoke with HuffPost after touring North Iowa Area Community College with his third wife, Callista. Callista Gingrich is mentioned in the flyer as a “young staffer” who carried on an extramarital affair with the then-House Speaker for several years before Gingrich divorced his second wife and married her.
So Newt has been married three times and apparently some people have a problem with that. Would that issue alone be enough to stop people from voting for him? A few sure, but those people probably weren’t going to vote for him anyway.
So what about you? Do you care about Newt’s personal life and the fact he has been married 3 times? Let us know in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
