Newt Gingrich

“To take an ex-wife and make it two days before the primary a significant question in a presidential campaign is as close to despicable as anything I can imagine,” said Newt Gingrich at the Jan. 19 presidential debate in response to the opening question about allegations made in an ABC News interview by ex-wife Marianne that he wanted an open marriage. “…And I am frankly astounded that CNN would take trash like that and use it to open a presidential debate.”
