This is the headline from the ABC News website:
Gingrich Daughters: ‘Open Marriage’ Charge ‘Simply Not True’
Hey, they are his daughters. They obviously want to refute the allegations against him. Frankly, I don’t care to even talk about the veracity of Marianne Gingrich’s statements regarding the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. Of course, these women would want to deflect such an accusation:
Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman, Gingrich’s daughters by his first wife, told ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross they had spoken with their father about Marianne Gingrich’s allegation and that he had assured them he never asked for an open marriage.
There, you see? The daughters are sure it’s not true because their dad told them it wasn’t. Out of curiosity, about how many specific details in Newt’s sex life are his girls privy to?
Of course his daughters would want to defend him from their stepmother. They want to protect their dad (Strangely, the guy who also cheated on his first wife, their mom). But that’s neither here nor there. Basically, this is a sordid story with super-high ick factor that I think just got weirder by having this type of “defense”. Thanks ladies for the unverifiable, self-serving hearsay from your father in refutation of the self-serving, conveniently-timed allegation from your former stepmom.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to consume less drama by watching a Real Housewives show.
