WASHINGTON (Ucs News) — Former House speaker and potential presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has confessed, telling conservative Christian leader James Dobson that he was cheating on his wife at around the same time the House was impeaching President Bill Clinton over his White House affair with Monica Lewinsky.
Gingrich admitted that this makes him a two faced liar and a disgusting hypocrite. According to Gingrich “I was playing politics with the nation, while stupping my wife’s best friend.” Gingrich also stated that, “I’m a Republican with God on my side, I can stup anytime I want to, It’s Bill Clintons fault he is a Democrat.”
The admission of an adulterous affair places Gingrich in a difficult position. With his plans to seek the Republican Presidential nomination Gingrich must now admit he suffers from shockingly poor judgment and exceedingly poor taste.
Gingrich isn’t the only candidate or potential candidate with some messy marriage and divorce issues. Like Gingrich, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been married three times. He’s currently the Republican front-runner in the presidential derby.
Richard Land, head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, condemned Giuliani’s and Gingrich’s behavior, calling their multiple divorces immoral, utterly deplorable behavior.
