Seriously? Another Gingrich Scandal?


Is Newt Gingrich just desperate to go to jail, or has his ego grown so large that he imagines himself above the laws of the land?

According to ABC News, Gingrich's for-profit company has taken $220,000 from a charity founded by Newt Gingrich over the last two years. The non-profit was supposed to benefit the concept of returning Christian values to Washington, but found itself donating donor lists and paying full price for Gingrich memorabilia.

The idea of Gingrich spreading Christian values in Washington might seem like a serious endeavour to his die-hard follower(s), but it's a moment of clarifying laughter for the rest of the world. With his wife-mistress-wife sex-life pattern and his ethical lapses at seemingly every stage of his career, Gingrich is hardly the paragon of virtue and holiness.

For his part, Gingrich isn't apologizing. It's become his M.O. lately, hasn't it? He calls on Clinton to resign over a sex scandal while hiding his own sex scandals. He gets run out of Congress on ethics charges and then reinvents himself as an ethical, moral Catholic... all while doing the same sleazy BS that he got busted for in the past.

Now he's caught abusing taxpayer-supported non-profits for his own personal gain while running up, what, $500,000 in free credit at a company his wife helped regulate and his former top aide lobbies for? Let's not forget the 2-week luxury cruise vacation he just took, proving that Blingrich is a man of the people.

Oh, Newt. The race will seem so boring when you're no longer running.
