In Newt's marriage scandal, naturally, a lawyer speaks out

Just as in the case of Herman Cain's own sex scandal, there's a lawyer throwing herself in the middle of Newt Gingrich's. But rather than Gloria Allred, it's Victoria Toensing, who is currently representing Gingrich's ex-wife's media affairs.

In an op-ed for The Daily Beast (was that the best she could do?) Toensing rehashes the icky allegations of the extramarital affair Gingrich had with his current wife Callista and describes him as someone who makes up the rules as he goes.

From the column:

Newt takes on a foe with such ferocity that Republicans, hungry for a fighting candidate, have not sought to challenge the veracity of his words. Consider his debate exchange with CNN moderator John King, who opened with a question about [his ex-wife] Marianne’s revelation.

In claiming as false Marianne’s statement that he asked for an open marriage, Newt asserted,” Every personal friend I have who knew us in that time period said the story was false.”

How could that be? Marianne has said the discussion occurred during a private conversation when they were in counseling. How would any friend know what Newt said only to his then wife?

Moreover, Newt had been having this affair with Callista for six years—in Marianne’s bed and when talking on the phone to Marianne in Callista’s presence, ending always with “I love you.” Newt had been in an open marriage for six years; only Marianne had not been told of it.

The issue of Gingrich's old affair didn't matter to Republicans in South Carolina. Gingrich won the state's primary. Next?
