Gingrich is Finished: Gay Stepsister Pledges Vote for Obama

Need a nice flashback to 1995? Well, back then New Gingrich has just ascended to Speaker of the House and was hit with an endless fusillade of attacks by the lamstream media. They threw the kitchen sink at him, from the infamous Connie Chung interview with his mother to shamelessly using his gay stepsister as a weapon against him. So during this current cycle we’d been wondering where Candace Gingrich was.

Well, here she is, brought to you by none other than the low-rated Rachel Maddow.

Newt Gingrich might be confident he’s got the votes to be the Republican presidential nominee, but he may have trouble convincing his own family to support him

The gay half-sister of the ex-House Speaker said Wednesday she’s going to stick with President Obama because of her sibling’s stance on same-sex marriage.

“He is definitely on the wrong side of history when it comes to those issues,” Candace Gingrich-Jones told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

Gingrich-Jones, a gay rights activist at the Human Rights Campaign, said she and her half-brother are “mutually respectful” of each other, but she would “work really, really hard to make sure that President Obama is re-elected next year no matter who the Republican candidate is.”

Gingrich, who has surged ahead as a top-tier candidate, is known for his views against gay marriage.

So she’ll be voting for Obama over her step-brother because of gay marriage, an issue on which Obama has the exact same viewpoint as Newt Gingrich.
Is Ms. Gingrich-Jones even aware of that? We doubt it. Liberals are never the most informed people out there.
Meanwhile, if you think dredging up 1995 is bad enough, how about going back to 1977 for some juicy tidbits?
A woman who worked for Newt Gingrich’s first successful congressional campaign in 1977 is sharing allegations of an adulterous affair with her boss in an attempt to stem the rise of the current GOP front-runner.

Anne Manning says that she had an adulterous relationship with Gingrich 34 years ago. At the time, he was married to his first wife, Jackie Battley, and campaigning for Congress with the slogan “Let Our Family Represent Your Family.”

So, what was the president up to in 1977? Well, we’re not even allowed to ask, because that would be racist or something.
