LGBT Rights Group Mocks “Hypocrite” Gingrich on Marriage

An LGBT rights group mocks former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as a hypocrite in an ad that ran in today’s Roll Call.

Truth Wins Out highlights Gingrich’s opposition to marriage for same-sex couples within the context of his own marital infidelities—including the affair he was having with his third wife Callista during impeachment proceedings against then-President Bill Clinton over his relationship with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

“On behalf of loving, life-long same-sex couples denied marriage equality: Newt you are a spectacular hypocrite!” reads the ad.

The ad ran a day after Washington lawmakers passed a marriage equality bill and two days after a federal appeals court ruled that California’s voter-approved ban on nuptials for same-sex couples is unconstitutional. Gingrich sought to position himself as the conservative who could most effectively combat so-called judicial activism on the federal bench in response to the Proposition 8 position.
