Skip to comments.Drudge: Gingrich’s ex-wife is ready to dish (Marianne Gingrich interview to be released tomorrow?)

You know who this benefits?
Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husbands career with a single interview. Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours. Her explosive revelations are set to rock the campaign. But now a civil war has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly when the confession will air!
Just a little more late intrigue for a race thats already in flux from Newts post-debate surge, Palins quasi-endorsement, Santorums possible victory in Iowa (the official results will be announced tomorrow morning), Perrys uncertain status vis-a-vis calls for him to drop out, and yet another debate tomorrow night. Drudge says the interviews tentatively set to air Monday, after the vote in South Carolina, but reporters from Politico and the NYT are hearing itll air tomorrow, presumably before the debate. Im surprised his ex didnt insist that it be broadcast ASAP. If shes coming clean now after years of silence, just as hes readying his last stand against Romney, shes obviously doing it to try to take him out. If you were her, wouldnt you want it to drop before the primary?
Actually, she hasnt been completely silent. Go read the Esquire piece from 2010 that everyone will be murmuring about until this thing finally airs. Quote:
Back in the 1990s, she told a reporter she could end her husbands career with a single interview. She held her tongue all through the affair and the divorce and even through the annulment Gingrich requested from the Catholic Church two years later, trying to erase their shared past. Now she sits quietly for a moment, ignoring her eggs, trying to decide how far she wants to go.
Heres the most sensational bit, after she found out about Gingrichs new mistress:
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.
Hed just returned from Erie, Pennsylvania, where hed given a speech full of high sentiments about compassion and family values.
The next night, they sat talking out on their back patio in Georgia. She said, How do you give that speech and do what youre doing?
It doesnt matter what I do, he answered. People need to hear what I have to say. Theres no one else who can say what I can say. It doesnt matter what I live.
If her interview runs along those lines Gingrichian egomania and hypocrisy but nothing criminal or lurid I dont know how much itll change things. You never know what information voters have and havent fully assimilated about a candidate, but Newts values problems have been public knowledge long enough that I take it theyre already mostly priced into his stock. Hes going to say shes a disgruntled ex whos making things up and, in any case, that hes found redemption in his faith since the divorce. Unless shes got a bombshell shes ready to drop, how many voters thinking of voting for him at this point will really think twice?
Exit question: If the interview does air tomorrow, how hard will Santorum and Romney go after him at the debate over it? Santorums desperate to have social conservatives unite behind him, but this is an awfully messy attack to try with the, er, Chevrolet sitting in the audience in front of him.
This smells to high heaven...
Doesn’t matter though... It will have it’s intended effect. More news cycles of negative stuff...
Except against Mitt
Hell hath no fury like..... you know the rest. Would anyone expect her to say sweet and charming things about Newt? It is what it is.
How ironic would it be if the last man standing is indeed Rick Perry? Fine with me, of course, though I like Newt.
Gee I wonder whose campaign is pushing this?
Can there be ANY doubt that the MSM wants Romney to be the nominee? I wonder why. On second thought, I don’t.
Chevrolet is so American.
I want to see Obama’s college admission records, transcripts, Harvard Review writings, and find out how sealed divorce records from his first Senate opponent became public. I also want his employment records from his ACORN days.
I don’t know. If she comes across as a bitter ex-wife, it could do more to damage her than Newt.
Remind me again how much play there was in the MSM about Larry Sinclair.
So they’ll do anything to make sure that Milt faces Obama? What does that tell us? Watergate, you’ll remember, was part of an operation to make sure that President Nixon faced the weakest candidate possible, which turned out to be Senator George McGovern.
Hell hath no fury. . .
and sleazy old Newt has it coming. We all knew that, so no surprise.
Too bad the future of the country is at stake. Otherwise, this could be quite entertaining.
From another thread:
"........But his greatest presidential stumbling block may be right under his nose. At home, Newt's second wife, Marianne Ginther Gingrich, tells me she doesn't see herself in the First Lady's job. "Watching Hillary has just been a horrible experience," commiserates Marianne. "Hillary sticking her neck out is not working."
What happens if Newt runs?, I ask.
"He can't do it without me," she replies. "I told him if I'm not in agreement, fine, it's easy" --she giggles at her naughtiness. "I just go on the air the next day, and I undermine everything...I don't want him to be president and I don't think he should be."
"Right now, the presidency is not a single person. It's not so much what he'd be doing. It's what I'd be doing.".........
This is the high school teacher that married her student (Newt) as soon as he graduated high school?
When you put it in that context, it’s not surprising the marriage had problems and they eventually divorced.
Obama studied the Koran but yet Romney’s Mormonism is an issue. Clinton had sexual relations in the oval office but women from decades ago who alleged ‘misconduct’ brought down Cain. Obama thinks we have 57 states but Palin couldn’t be VP because she could see Russia from ALASKA. GO FIGURE. The only perfect conservative walked on water AND HE IS NOT RUNNING.
A witch! Burn her!
I would hope that most women would know that she fooled around with him while he was still married and she was just getting her fair share of karma. I’ve heard many women say it, IF he’ll cheat with you . . . he will cheat on you. Yes, I’m a woman. I don’t care about his affairs, he has asked for forgiveness from God and that is between them. I’m looking for a leader in this election, not a husband . . . while I’d rather he didn’t have a past . . . it is what it is and considering Washington it isn’t like nobody else ever did it too.
If they succeed in destroying anyone but Romney they will insure Sarah’s entry into the race.
Nothing she could say will overshadow the “rumors” about “Bath-House Barry” Soetoro’s “down-low” antics.
As a matter of fact, a skirt-chaser seems pretty damned boring compared to a Homo-potus.
Women were generally down on Newt already . This’ll really get them scurrying away in droves . He’ll be lucky if his own kids vote for him .
Marianne and ABC had both better hope that any and every accusation can be proved beyond a preponderance of the evidence; otherwise, they can both expect to be sued into the poor house. Newt can afford the kind of lawyers that you do not want coming after you for civil damages.
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.I can sympathize. Willard Romney is a duplicitous jerk-off butt-dragging "free abortions for all" progressive, and I want a non-duplicitous jerk-off butt-dragging progressive candidate.
Her timing is interesting. One wonders if she is pulling the knife out of her boot to inflict the greatest hurt to her unfaithful husband at a point when she can wound him more deeply than any time in the past, or is she sincerely concerned for this country?
Uriah could have authored quite a hit piece on David, had he been up for re-election and things gone a little differently.
Sometimes God raises up leaders who are quite fallible but are called for a destiny- Samson, etc.
Romney’s next wife?
Not all women are down on Newt. Go Newt!
Aren’t you tired of the leftist media picking your candidates? That would be Romney in this case who is really toast in the general election and he should know it. People should be tired of being puppets to these clowns.
What else lays eggs? A duck! She really is a witch. She turned Newt into...oh, never mind.
It will take more than a 20 year old “bombshell story” to take Newt out. This will be a weak attempt.
People want to forgive and forget, by this time.
I would think you all would have learned that refusing to pay attention to things like this is a mistake.
Remember Marianne was there during Newts skyrocketing income days. Just sayin”
Whenever The Chosen One is looking like there might be a legitimate threat to his Ascendency, the smear-machine goes into over-drive, led by the State-Run-Media.
This pattern is soooooooooo predictable, you can smell it a mile away.
In fact, Palin alluded to this happening all the way to November, when the Dem's start their assault on whatever Candidate survives.
ABC is just as sleazy as their master Obama.
Side note: I have not lived a storied life filled with an angelic past; but I truly like who I am now at half a century of age and would not be the man I am, I feel, without doing the good and the bad I did in the past. I consider the skeletons in my closet to be my friends...ugly, hideous Helen Thomas type skeletons, but my friends.
Does she describe his “magic underpants”?
When they stop trying to throw everything including the kitchen sink at anybody that even has the remotest chance of getting more than 2% on any election, including lies and innuendo with bo basis in fact or foundation, and then start reporting even 10% of what is out there in the lib side, then maybe they should be allowed to influence political discussion.
Wasn’t Marianne the one that stole him from wife 1?
So who paid her? I want to know. Newt has been in politics for decades and she steps forward now. Come on she is a bitter ex wife as far as I am concerned I don’t care what she has to say.
So, this is like “I don’t want to be the one to reveal horrible information, but those who do want an answer?” Get the damage done but have deniability? What is this crap?
Heehee...I see where you went there.
My wife had a great observation about Romney.
She thinks the left knows, not just concerned about, KNOWS that nobama is going to lose to anyone and the libs and RINOS want Mitt because he is at best a Mass. moderate and actually a liberal to all of us. By their accepting Mitt, they and the power brokers maintain the status quo because Mitt will not rock the boat full of USA cash.
LOL, And just what has she said that's untrue?
I hope Newt can stand up and say, “what ex-wife has anything good to say, and not get in the he said, she said dialogue.)
Oh, BFD Maryanne! Rumor, innuendo, and outright lies. Get over yourself.
If Newt goes down, it will be over with Florida, before Sarah could get her boots on. Nope, it's Newt or Romney now.
Which one of his ex-wives is this one?
