Newt Gingrich Might Be Lying About First Divorce

Post By RelatedRelated Post

 

 

Carrollton, Georgia (CNN) — Newt Gingrich claims that it was his first wife, not Gingrich himself, who wanted their divorce in 1980, but court documents obtained by CNN appear to show otherwise.

The Republican presidential candidate, now in his third marriage, has been peppered with attacks and questions about his divorce from Jackie Gingrich for the past three decades.

Questions about his past — and what that past tells voters about his personal behavior — have re-emerged as he has returned to the political scene 13 years after he resigned as speaker of the House.

A new defense that has arisen as Gingrich entered the presidential race this year is the insistence that she, not he, wanted the divorce.

On the “Answering the attacks” page of his campaign website, Newt.org, which “(Sets) the Record Straight: Newt’s Positions on the Issues and His Record,” the campaign discusses Gingrich’s first divorce.

“It was (Jackie Gingrich) that requested the divorce, not Newt,” the campaign website said, referring readers to an online column written by Gingrich’s youngest daughter, Jackie Gingrich Cushman, last May.

  1. I did not know Newt Gingrich is also a liar. I know he is adulterer was inhuman to his ill wives. And Republicans want to nominate him as their their WH candidates. What should we conclude about Republicans! They must also be liars and corrrupt to nominate Newt.

  2. If you are a Republican you’ll just have to admit that your selection of potential GOP nominees has be the worst in the history of presidential elections. Everyone of them appears to have some extremely deep flaws. There are adulterers, sex abusers, racist, idiots, and established liars among these so-called presidential hopefuls. It is certainly not a good time to be Republican these days.
