ABC News was exposed last year as a hostile work environment and a den of sexual harassment.

The 241 insider testimonials have all since been scrubbed from the original story's website, but some of the comments have been captured at this post in the FR thread.

ABC News is the LAST place with any credibility to discuss someone else's marriage.

No problem! If I had just read the words and not heard the show, I would have thought the same thing.

never heard that, it would somewhat explain her look, but not the bitterness.

One thing about Newt, I don't think he will be "polite" like McCain was in 2008, and it scares Obama.

You don't THINK he will?

Let’s not forget Hillary’s Muslim Brotherhood aide, Huma Abedin and husband Anthony *show-my-weiner*’s indiscretions. IIRC, she didn’t say much, although she was preggers.

Reading through the posts, I'm not seeing much in the way of conservative values. I mean, if Gingrich abandoned his wife (shortly after a diagnosis of MS) and/or if he wanted an "open marriage"; THEN he made choices and he is RESPONSIBLE for his actions.

Personal responsibility, that is what we conservatives continuously and continually stand for.

Anything less, and we are no better than the lying Democrats (and arguably worse, because we allegedly know better).

Personal responsibility.

It applies to everyone, including Newt.

he actually has the look of an alcoholic, not meaning to be rude here

Yup, Multiple Sclerosis is what you get when you drink too much. And if your husband dumps you just after being diagnosed with MS (while informing you of an affair that he has been having), why should you be bitter? You should be happy and cheerful about it.
Hope the sarcasm does not come off as "rude".

HINT: sclerosis sounds a lot like ‘cirrhosis’, as in cirrhosis of the liver from excessive drinking of alcoholic beverages.

Hell, for all I know we should be getting disability from the government.

No, you shouldn't!

There can be no doubt that this is a hit job by the media on Newt, but this is pretty mind-boggling stuff from Rush, even if he is probably trying to be funny here. In his best interests he should move on to other topics, IMO, because he is spewing a lot of amoral nonsense on the subject of Newt's infidelities.

Well I see she has duped you as well. She is a BITTER little SHREW, and from the new report of the FBI investigation on her, it appears she was also an opportunist, using her husband for money and influence and a bit of BLACKMAIL on him to make him fall in line.

Looks like NEWT was not buying her GREED and Mode of operation, sperated from her and finally she PUSHED one time to many, he would not go along with her schemes for money and she asked for the divorce.

Newt being the gentleman, he simply could/would not expose her for the SHREW she is. He was no longer afraid of Virginia Wolfe. VERY SICK WOMAN.

New thread out on her FBI investigation, GO READ IT.

"So Newt wanted an open marriage. BFD. At least he asked his wife for permission instead of cheating on her. That's a mark of character, in my book.

Newt's a victim. We all are. Ours is the horniest generation. We were soldiers in the sex revolution. We were tempted by everything from Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice to Plato's retreat, Deep Throat to no fault divorce. Many of us paid the ultimate price, AIDS, abortion, or alimony for the cultural marching orders we got. Hell, for all I know we should be getting disability from the government." That's from a good friend of mine, "Newt's slogan ought to, 'Hell, yes, I wanted it.'" (laughing) I'm sharing with you how some people are reacting to this.

We're FINALLY fighting back...

Rush has lost it on this one. This is indefensible.

What, the fact that Newt went to his wife about the affair or the fact that Newt went to his wife about the affair and it is now a ridiculous public issue and Rush made a comment about it?

LOL! I love the obsession of you guys, you can find just about anything to bash Rush with..........

Rush was spot on, with over half the population of adults in this country being divorced, since when did it become a presidential primary issue?

You obviously fell for the MSM bait, you want some help removing that treble hook?

Wow, important BREAKING news ...from 1994.

This is almost as important as the DUI President George W. Bush got ...twenty-one years before he ran for office.

Wondering why the lame stream dinosaur news media is always a decade or two late with their BREAKING stories.

Help me out here, my FRiend.

Did Mister Gingrich abandon his wife shortly after her MS diagnosis?

And, did Mister Gingrich ask for an "open marriage".

If he dismisses all this as "mistakes", fine. I would, however, like a little more from a presidential candidate in the way of character and good decision-making.

The fact that Rush finds it the mark of character if anyone goes to his wife and seeks permission to bed other women. That is not the mark of character.

She is out for revenge. She is jealous that she is not in Newt's life.

She may have a desperate need for cash. Illness, eg.

What goes on the bedroom with couples, is none of my business.....

Really? Rape? Wife-beating? Murder? Drugs? Come on. It all goes to character -- and character points directly at "figs and thistles".

If the Kennedy family had been truly upright and observant, do you think there'd have been any dealings with Sam "Momo" Giancana and his Chicago gargoyles, and graveyard votes in the 1960 election? Do you think the Mob would have blown Jack away for not telling Bobby to back off on the Valachi Papers and embarrassing J. Edgar Hoover, who was on a Mob leash because of his predilections?

Look the other way, and you will pay eventually, voter.

I have a feeling that you already know this, but what the heck I'm gonna offer it anyway.

Newt and Marrianne guttersnipe had been separated for a number of years, they got back together briefly, then wrote up mutual separation papers in which they agreed to not attack over dating while their separation continued to the divorce date. IOW, in legal documents, Newt AND Marrianne agreed to accept the other dating during the separation.

My husband took one look at the Marianne tape tonight, and said she looks like a lush.

I’m reminded of the Jack Ryan court ordered divorce papers release and the allegations his tv star wife made during divorce proceedings. He said, she said.

I’m no Newt defender (yet) but the “leaving the wife after her MS diagnosis” story is a gross over-simplification. You have bought into the MSM version of the story and need to read his daughter’s account of the event. As to the “open marriage” question he’s roundly denied it so it’s his word against hers and we can’t know who did what.

I agree with your observations, my FRiend.

I do tend to think, however, that Mister Gingrich has such an extensive trail of examples of poor judgement, that he is "damaged goods" insofar as a potential standard bearer of the GOP.

The ex wife's accusations may be false, but the Dems will have no compunction about using them to influence voters who look no farther than 30 second political smash mouths from which to derive their voting decisions. I wish this were not the case.

Then there are conservatives, just like moi, who will not get over the Pelosi-love-seat-global-warmist lecture, and doubt that we can trust this (is there a nice word for "weasel"?).

Please understand, if Newt wins the GOP nomination, I'm in his corner with all my energy, and some of my $.

I do believe, however, that the man will be a tough sell to politically pliant "moderates" and indies.
