    Newt Gingrich made over 1 million dollars working for Freddie Mac.

    Gingrich Said to Be Paid at Least $1.6 Million by Freddie Mac - Bloomberg

    If Republican voters truly had principals, they would denounce Newt with the strongest possible language.

    Instead, they are going to ignore, cover-up, and misdescribe his work for Freddie.

    Question for Republicans: Is it ok that Newt worked for Freddie Mac?

    Hint: liberals make excuses for their politicians, but Republicans stand for principals.

    Newt Gingrich DID NOT WORK for Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac--his company contracted with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to give advice & consultation services--as his company did with Micro-soft and other corporations. And your 1.6 million dollar fee for both of these companies was from 1999 to 2006 in different contracts with these two agencies.

    I'll have to see more before I make a judgment. Something tells me the Media will go balls out if there is anything and nuts to the wall looking if there is nothing.
