Newt Gingrich Wanted an Open Marriage, Says Second Wife

Try to keep up. It’s tough.

From the Wall Street Journal:

Newt Gingrich wanted an open marriage, former wife Marianne Gingrich said in an interview with ABC News.

ABC just put out a video clip and excerpts of the interview, which is scheduled to air on Nightline tonight after the GOP presidential debate in South Carolina. Ms. Gingrich, who was married to the former House speaker for 18 years, said she is disclosing details of her marriage now to tell voters what she knows about Mr. Gingrich’s character. The two divorced in 1999, after, she says, Mr. Gingrich had suggested an open marriage that would allow him to continue an affair with Callista Bisek,  the congressional aide who later became his third wife.

Ms. Gingrich told ABC’s Brian Ross that after Mr. Gingrich made that suggestion, “I just stared at him and he said, ‘Callista doesn’t care what I do’…  He wanted an open marriage and I refused.”

That’s Newt Gingrich, conservative Catholic.

Yoi.
