|Newt & Wife #1|
Um, wrong. See, not only do we all know that Newt was married and fucking around with a mistress, but then he divorced his wife to marry the mistress, on whom he began fucking around so he could divorce her and marry that mistress. You know, the helmet-haired devout Catholic who fucked a married man and now stands like a Stepford wife at his side?
But what we are just learning is that, the story that Newt has been telling about Wife One isn't exactly true.
Newty says that it was his first wife, Jackie Battley, who initiated the divorce from him, and not the other way around. But now a confidant of Newt's has told CNN that Gingrich said he dumped Jackie Battley--his one-time high school geometry teacher--in 1980 because he felt she wasn’t “young enough or pretty enough” to be First Lady.
That's our Newt.

Oops, not so fast. Newly revealed 30-year-old court papers show that Jackie Battley had asked the judge to reject her husband’s request for a divorce: “Defendant shows that she has adequate and ample grounds for divorce, but that she does not desire one at this time. Defendant does not admit that this marriage is irretrievably broken.”
Battley, who survived her cancer, has not criticized Newt publicly but, in one of her only public comments on the divorce, says “it came as a complete surprise.” She described being in the hospital after her third cancer surgery when he came to visit. “He wanted to discuss the terms of the divorce while I was recovering from the surgery. To say I gave up a lot for the marriage is the understatement of the year.”
That sure sounds like he asked for a divorce while she was undergoing cancer treatments, eh?

Carter also said Gingrich initially refused to pay alimony--a claim supported by the court papers--and a local church had to launch a food drive for Battley and her two daughters.
When Gingrich left Jackie Battley, he was schtupping a young congressional aide, Marianne Ginther, whom he married in 1981 on the heels of his divorce. He divorced her 19 years later after schtupping another young congressional aide, Callista Bisek, who is now his third wife, automaton and main campaign strategist.
Marry. Fuck an aide. Divorce. Marry the aide. Fuck an aide. Divorce. Marry the aide.
And then lie about it.
That's our Newt.
