'Newt Gingrich is a hypocrite', claims ex-staffer who had affair with thrice-married GOP candidate

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2071215/Newt-Gi...
GOP presidential candidate has apologised for affairs
But now Anne Manning has spoken of a 'fling' in 1977
She claims they had sexual relations in Washington
Experts say his behaviour suggests he's a 'sex addict'


Sexual deviance, regardless of its truth, has already brought down Herman Cain. But Newt Gingrich is so far holding up stronger than his fallen rival. However now an ex-mistress has told the National Enquirer that the GOP presidential candidate, who cheated on two previous wives, is a hypocrite'. Anne Manning claims she performed a sex act on him in his Washington D.C. hotel room while he was still married to his first wife Jackie in 1977.



Allegations: Anne Manning, left, claims she performed a sex act on Newt Gingrich, right, in a hotel room while he was still married to his first wife Jackie in 1977



Mr Gingrich married his first wife Jackie Battley, his former high school geometry teacher, in 1962 when he was 19 years old and she was 26. They had two daughters, Kathy and Jackie. But in the spring of 1980, they split after he had an affair with Marianne Ginther. He is said to have demanded a divorce from Ms Battley while she was in hospital for cancer treatment, but has always disputed this. Ms Ginther went on to become his second wife in 1981, six months after his divorce with Ms Battley was finalised. In the mid-1990s, he began an affair with House of Representatives staffer Callista Bisek, who is 23 years his junior. They married in 2000.




I never knew he was dating his High School Teacher! Lots of interesting stuff in that article.

3. I think Gingrich is totally made of Teflon. This
morning on MSNBC with Alex Twit she and that stooge Halperin were discussing Gingrich and Obama, She cited a CBS poll that had Obama 54 points in the red. I do not know who they polled but I do not believe those figure. Halperin said with those figure Obama would not win. I do not believe that either.

6. He Married His Teacher
I had a friend who had a crush on our math teacher in middle school. She swore she would marry him someday - I used to laugh at her, but now I know, it's possible to marry your teacher.

9. Oh Yeah Republicon Family Values!
I did not realize the teacher thing until I read that article turns out there is more to the Eye of Newt than I wanted to know but I can see he was more than likely being groomed by his Teacher for that position, hubby, while in class!

8. Sanctity!
The GOP has finally admitted that they have no 'family values' at all, just hate and bigotry and hysterical hypocrisy.
