Naughty Newt’s Bossy Wife Blamed for Staff Desertion

What drove the entire Newt Gingrich 2012 senior staff to simultaneously resign in protest? Two words, says Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard: Callista Gingrich. Barnes doesn’t cite any sources—not even anonymous ones—but he says the aides were fed up with the amount of control Gingrich gave his wife, who essentially pushed for a part-time campaign. The final straw, apparently, was the Gingrichs’ just-concluded two-week Mediterranean cruise, which Callista insisted on despite the staff’s objections.

In a New York Times profile last month, Callista was described as lukewarm about the prospect of a White House run. But Barnes says she had nonetheless supplanted Newt’s oldest allies—including aide-de-camp Rick Tyler and Sam Dawson, who’s been with Gingrich for more than thirty years—to become Newt’s foremost adviser. With fundraising down, the staff believed Gingrich could not win without a vigorous campaign, so while he was away at sea, they planned their mutiny.

    She looks like the woman that crashed the state dinner. Could it be? God I would hate to wake up to that every morning before she put her make up on. 🙁
