She said when Gingrich admitted to a six-year affair with a Congressional aide, he asked her if she would share him with the other woman, Callista, who is now married to Gingrich.
"And I just stared at him and he said, 'Callista doesn't care what I do,'" Marianne Gingrich told ABC News. "He wanted an open marriage and I refused."

He said/She said....ex-wife BS from years ago, doubt anyone will care.
And when Newt and Callista say to Marianne “You’re full of sh$t!”, Then what?
Yeah i’m sure all the soccer moms around the country will just laugh it all off. You know, tnose indepentd women voters, im sure they won’t care one bit. Especially the over 50% of them who have been through a divorce themselves.
You’re fooling yourself. The ladies will care. And believe it or not...some men will too.
Who cares what she says? I don’t. I’m voting for Newt. He’s the only one that can take out Obama, and the only one I’m voting for.
Why didn’t Cains’ “ex’s” and Newts ex say these things when their campaigns first started?
When is ABC News going to interview Larry Sinclair?
Newt definitely has a problem w/female voters already, but this neither hurts or helps him, I think its a wash.
.....as opposed to Bill Clinton and the Kennedys.
Well that’s true, but this news isn’t “news” to them that really makes much difference. They already know his history.
Isn’t it interesting these women all think they are experts on the requirements to be president?
And what a shock, they want the whole world to know their ex boyfriend or ex husband isn’t qualified.
How much ‘moral character’ does it take to appear on TV and divulge personal and very private marital issues?
Ex-wife is right.
“Youre fooling yourself. The ladies will care. And believe it or not...some men will too.”
I hope someone cares so everyone will vote for Santorum! Thank you ex-wife, Romney and ABC! My candidate sucks but I’m willing to team up with you guys in order to win.
Well, that’s it. As an ex wife, she’s got no motive to lie.
Why wasn't anyone listening?
So people are just supposed to take the word of an ex-wife at face value?
Here it comes! For all you CfGs out there (chumps for Gingrich), I hope you enjoy mouthing, "character doesn't count," which you decried in 1992. ANY adulterer is a serial liar capable of convincing himself fully of the rightness of any course. This is why Newtie can turn on a dime, blowing "insurance mandate," "Global Warming," and "Contract with the Earth" in one instance and repudiating it the next.
Santorum for President. At least we won't have to be explaining away what happens because he is far less likely to "change his mind" after the election. All of those who mouth, "he can't win" should remember: That's what they said about Reagan. My dog could beat Barack Obama, as long as he is a conservative.
After Clinton, there is no one that “lacks the character to be president”.
After 0bama, there is no one that is “unqualified to be president”.
“Calista doesn’t care what I do”...
Wow maybe she into so bad after all.... a model wife...
This is the exact reason why I am supporting Santorum.
-stolen from FReeper Gritty
That is right.
We can all look down our pointy noses and play right into the Dims Saul Alinsky tactics, or negate them.
The train carrying the perfect candidate has never reached the station. You wait on the platform for a train that will never come, or get on a train that gets you close to where you want to go.
I didn’t say that. I’ saying that this will damage him politically with female voters. Many of them who have been through a divorce, many of whom are independents, and many of them who vote on character over policy.
Just my opinion.
But we once had a President, without a hint of scandal, was faithfully married to his wife, never divorced, no DUIs, or anything like that, if fact, the worst thing was that he had lust in his heart....AND HE SUCKED!
It's a shame Ms. TellTale cannot get on with her life and stop living in the past.
You can remove those concepts from the list of qualifiers for the office of President of the United States!
Sour grapes. Anyway whatever happened to repentance, forgiveness - change. There is NO ONE person under God and Jesus that is/was perfect! I don’t trust a person who can’t admit they are wrong or can’t think about something and actually change their minds! It is called awakening - growth. the Obama waterboy media will go to Newt’s 2nd grade teacher next to find out if he ever wet his pants!
An endless marriage? Like the one he vowed to uphold when he married her?
With Obama, there is only the Wookiee.
Oh you mean those very same women who still fawn over Clinton? I guess Newt doesn't get "One Free Grope" from them.
1)Perry’s gone. 2)This crap surfaces again which just reinforces that Gingrich is a sleaze. 3)Gingrich was voted out of the speakership by the most conservative congress ever for a reason.
1 + 2 + 3 = I’m supporting Santorum.
Don't think that's true.
I've seen countless Freepers already confused about Wife #1 and Wife #2 and who did what when.
Many don't even know that Newt was caught having this affair during the Clinton impeachment. It was sad to see the Speaker of the House who was running the impeachment trial not able to speak up because of his own sexual indiscretions.
I'd vote for Newt if he got the nomination but although he can talk he's far from the image of the White Knight that he's so recently acquired.
What was she thinking when she was the mistress against wife #1, that she's so outraged now?
Based on that picture, I heartily congratulate Newt for making the decision to upgrade.
“Santorum for President”
Opportunistic weasels team up with Romney and the MSM to pump their fading candidate by using trash.
Because we all know they would never do the same with Rick, right?
For all of your moral righteousness, you sure know how to align yourself with some real scumbags.
Buh bye Newt, thanks for playing.
Newt said the field should be narrowed in order to stop Romney. Ask and ye shall receive. Perry is dropping out. This will toast Newt.
Santorum vs. Romney... (yeah, I know Ron Paul is there for the kooks).
wow. She’s her own worst enemy. Imagine what she looks like without the makeup?
People will see her for what she is....angry & bitter (not that Newt didn’t treat her like dirt)
Newt’s track record with women is abysmal. See link listed below for all of Newt’s sordid sexcapades:
“But Marianne was having problems of her own. After going to the doctor for a mysterious tingling in her hand, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Early in May, she went out to Ohio for her mothers birthday. A day and a half went by and Newt didnt return her calls, which was strange. They always talked every day, often ten times a day, so she was frantic by the time he called to say he needed to talk to her.
He wanted to talk in person, he said.
I said, No, we need to talk now.
He went quiet.
Theres somebody else, isnt there?
She kind of guessed it, of course. Women usually do. But did she know the woman was in her apartment, eating off her plates, sleeping in her bed?
She called a minister they both trusted. He came over to the house the next day and worked with them the whole weekend, but Gingrich just kept saying she was a Jaguar and all he wanted was a Chevrolet. I cant handle a Jaguar right now. He said that many times. All I want is a Chevrolet.
He asked her to just tolerate the affair, an offer she refused.”
For all the lurid details of Newt’s sexcapades, not only with his 2 ex-wives, see:
It’s like a flashing light goes off in these women when poll numbers go over 25%. Or, are they given other incentives to squeal?
Yeah like Clinton had the moral character???
So, Marianne, how big of a check did Mitt send you?
Does Wife No. 2 has a husband No.1?
Seriously,Wife # 2 can’t complain. She did to Wife No.1 what Callista did to her.
Besides, I’m not trying to elect a Pope.
I want the person who can best beat Obama.
I don’t care about Newt’s past.
I care about America’s future.
No, Marianne's been saying this for years. Many weren't listening. Now they are.
