NewtGingrich.com Now Redirects to Newt's Embarrassments
Type in NewtGingrich.com and you'll be surprised with the results. Gingrich's campaign will be too!
Type in NewtGingrich.com and you'll be surprised with the results. Gingrich's campaign will be too! A Talking Points Memo's Pema Levy points out, the website redirects to news stories about Gingrich's campaign problems or to sites associated with Gingrich's luxury lifestyle. Among them:
- Freddie Mac (where Gingrich earned $1.6 million as a historian.)
- Gingrich's global warming ad with Nancy Pelosi (where he sat with one of the politicians most hated by conservatives to call for action on one of their most hated issues.)
- Tiffany's (where Gingrich had a million-dollar credit line.)
- Travel Guide to Greece (where Gingrich disappeared a week after announcing he was running for president for a luxury cruise with his wife.)
- The Washington Post's June 9 story "Gingrich presidential campaign implodes."
- The Atlantic Wire's December 9 post "Gingrich's Campaign Still Looks an Awful Lot Like a Book Tour" (what an honor!)
Gingrich's official campaign site is Newt.org. It still looks normal. The Wayback Machine hasn't been much help with NewtGingrich.com. And the Whois record only shows a DomainsByProxy.com registration.
Update 12:39p.m.: Pro-Obama PAC American Bridge bought the NewtGingrich.com, The Atlantic's Molly Ball says. It's "for sale" on Craigslist: "We're asking for $1 million, but we'd be happy to accept $500,000 in bling. Heck in the spirit of Christmas we might even let it go for $10,000."
