Oh, the irony:
Republican frontrunner Newt Gingrich has received an endorsement that he probably would’ve preferred kept a secret, like some other things in life. Ashley Madison, an online dating site specializing in extramarital affairs has endorsed the thrice-married former Speaker of the House, who remains haunted by his philandering past. “Now that Newt is the leading contender in the race for the GOP nomination, we felt compelled to make a point to illustrate how times have changed when a serial divorcee/adulterer is capturing the hearts of the American people,” said site founder Noel Biderman,
Biderman has erected a billboard in Pennsylvania with Gingrich’s likeness, and a headline reading “Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband’ with the former GOP speaker pictured making a shushing gesture.
Political blog The Morning Call was curious why the sign went up in the Keystone State, which doesn’t vote until April: “Biderman said Pennsylvania is the only state where new membership to the site — which opens “Life is short, Have an affair — did not decline this month.”
