Gingrich pushed for stimulus his clients could profit from
In debates, on Fox News, and on the stump, Newt Gingrich provides the potent, anti-Obama, anti-Washington rhetoric that conservatives crave. He is appealing to angry, libertarian-minded voters who seek less government influence in the lives of individuals and business. The result: he has soared in the polls. But the former speaker also has spent the last decade using his clout and old contacts to remain a major player in the culture he publicly reviles, playing the inside-the-beltway influence game at a high level.
