"The interview with Marianne Gingrich is said to contain “explosive revelations”. Newt proposed to her before the divorce of his first wife had been finalized, and when he and Marianne divorced in 2000, Gingrich had already taken up with Callista Bisek, his third wife."
Interview with Newt’s ex-wife ‘could end Gingrich’s career’
Paul Joseph Watson
A bombshell interview with Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife set to air tonight could catapult Ron Paul into a shock second placed finish in South Carolina and confirm the Congressman as Mitt Romney’s main rival.
The interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s wife of 18 years, “could end her ex-husband’s career,” according to a Drudge Report exclusive.
Despite a “civil war” erupting within ABC News over whether or not to air the interview before Saturday’s primary, the broadcast will go out tonight on Nightline, less than 48 hours before SC voters head to the polls.
Gingrich is set to hold a press conference today during which he will try to engage in damage control.
With current polls showing Gingrich in second place behind Romney, with Ron Paul and Rick Santorum virtually tied in third, any collapse in Gingrich’s support on the back of the interview would directly benefit the candidates immediately behind him in the polls.
If Ron Paul beats Santorum to second in South Carolina, and the scandal torpedoes Gingrich’s wider presidential campaign, it would virtually guarantee a Romney-Paul head to head for the rest of the primary contest.
The interview with Marianne Gingrich is said to contain “explosive revelations”. Newt proposed to her before the divorce of his first wife had been finalized, and when he and Marianne divorced in 2000, Gingrich had already taken up with Callista Bisek, his third wife.
“The interview, should it air before Saturday’s primary, would shine a spotlight on a part of Gingrich’s past that could turn off Republican voters in a state filled with religious and cultural conservatives who may cringe at Gingrich’s two divorces and acknowledged infidelity,” reports ABC News.
Gingrich’s dishonesty when it comes to his personal life mirrors his political career. According to Gingrich’s first wife, Jackie Battley, Newt shocked her by demanding a divorce while she was still in hospital recovering from cancer surgery. According to L. H. Carter, Gingrich’s former campaign treasurer, Gingrich said of Battley: “She’s not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of the President. And besides, she has cancer.”
As we have documented, Gingrich is a ruthless Washington insider who routinely violates constitutional principles to serve the establishment. Gingrich is the ultimate RINO Republican, supporting Nancy Pelosi’s cap and trade plan, socialized health care, global government, and a plethora of other big government initiatives.
Despite obtaining the frontrunner position, when revelations about Herman Cain’s private life emerged last year, he was forced to drop out of the Republican race altogether.
Should the interview sink Gingrich’s presidential aspirations, the establishment will merely continue to throw its weight behind the anointed selection – Mitt Romney – who himself has a record of political deception on a par with Newt Gingrich.
