Gingrich Picks Up Major Endorsement…from a pro-adultery website

Think Progress reports, in part:

A website that promotes adultery has endorsed Newt Gingrich for president, and even erected a giant billboard in Pennsylvania to announce it. Next to a picture of Gingrich making a “shh” gesture, the billboard reads:“Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband.” Ashleymadison.com, a dating website for people looking to cheat on their spouses, welcomes visitors with the tag line, “Life is short, Have an affair.” Gingrich has admitted to cheating on his wives, and Noel Biderman, the founder of the cheaters website 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.”

Scoring “political points” from a person’s personal struggles is bad form and worse taste, but this really leaves one speechless.  How could Americans vote for a man who cannot keep his vow to his wife, but expect him to keep his vow to the Constitution?

This is a touchy issue for many who are weary of mud-slinging politics, but note that this is not being thrown out by another candidate.  This is an endorsement from a website that delights in adultery and is happy to support Gingrich because of his previous affairs.
