Gingrich talks the talk
GOP presidential candidate and current frontrunner Newt Gingrich is hitting headlines because his second wife told ABC News he wanted an open marriage. Gingrich refuted the claims and attacked anyone who asked about the allegations. But Gingrich doesn’t want an open marriage, he wants a mistress, as activist and author Dan Savage said, “Newt Gingrich wants us to know that he did not ask his second ex-wife for an open marriage. An honest, open relationship was never on the table. Newt and Callista’s six-year adulterous relationship was grounded in deceit and betrayal from the start, and Newt and Callista never wavered from the path of deceit and betrayal.”
