Someone Asked Newt Gingrich About All Those Affairs He’s Had

By

If Newt Gingrich is going to run for president, as it appears he will, he better gird himself for questions like the one he received last night during a forum with University of Pennsylvania students. As reported by Politico:

You adamantly oppose gay rights … but you’ve also been married three times and admitted to having an affair with your current wife while you were still married to your second,” Isabel Friedman, president of the Penn Democrats, said to Gingrich.

Not to mention the affair he had with the woman who would become his second wife while still married to his first! Sorry, didn’t mean to interrupt.

“As a successful politician who’s considering running for president, who would set the bar for moral conduct and be the voice of the American people, how do you reconcile this hypocritical interpretation of the religious values that you so vigorously defend?”

After trying to shame the questioner — “I hope you feel better about yourself,” he told her — Gingrich basically answered that he can’t reconcile it, and he hopes the voters don’t mind.

Don’t ask Newt about the past! It’s totally not important at all! You’ve been Joe Miller’ed.
