Sure, Rick Perry may have the endorsement of the racist, sadistic, and constitution-defying Sheriff Joe Arpaio. But Newt Gingrich has a very special endorser under his belt (no pun intended): the pro-adultery dating website Ashleymadison.com. “The world’s leading married dating service for discreet encounters” whose motto is “Life is Short. Have an affair,” has endorsed the Newt in a billboard ad for its site in Bucks County, PA. The Billboard features Gingrich and the text “Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband. Welcome to the Ashleymadison.com Era.” If you’re looking for a poster boy– or billboard boy– for adultery, Newt Gingrich is your man! He has admitted to cheating on his wives, he’s on number three now, but chocked it up to his love for his country. In one particularly charming adulterous move, he delivered his wife divorce papers while she recovered from surgery from cancer and then married the woman with whom he was cheating on the wife.
Ashleymadison.com’s motives are pro-Newt and pro-adultery. Its founder explained
“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…. Gingrich proves that marital fidelity has no bearing on someone’s ability to do a job. Rather than judge him, Americans have finally embraced the reality that affairs are commonplace, and perhaps paradoxically, might be an indication of great leadership to come. He is not the first nor last politician who will step outside of their marriage.” read the rest of the post here at feministing.
