Jan 23, 2012
Personal life scandals can help or hurt anyone, especially Presidential candidates. Scandalous news often are a free and good advertising.
According to casino gambling news, Newt Gingrich is doing well in his Republican presidential campaign despite a scandal involving his allegedly ”open marriage” proposition to his former wife.
This scandal seems to have helped him as the victory in the South Carolina primary shows. This puts into the corner his rival, Mitt Romney who still leads Republican race, but without dominating it.
Meanwhile, Gingrich’s recent scandal and win are giving him wings as his campaign machine is raising some serious greenbacks.
