Newt And Callista Began Affair In 1993

Newt And Callista Began Affair In 1993, Enough about how America would feel about having Newt Gingrich as the president of the United States after his known personal problems of the past with infidelity. Remembering the old adage which says ‘it takes two to tango,’ how would America feel about Newt’s tango partner being FLOTUS – the First Lady of the United States?
While Newt Gingrich may fly past the criticism and end up becoming the 45th president, would a FLOTUS like Callista Gingrich get the same pass? If Newt continues a successful route to the White House with Callista in tow, having a past-adulterous couple in the White House will be yet another first for the nation that keeps thinking – or hopes – it’s seen it all.
Yes, Americans have had Bill Clinton with his shenanigans in the Oval Office of the White House, but his wife Hillary came out smelling like a rose. There was talk of other past presidents being naughty, too – you probably know the ones – but the women were viewed as near-saintly in their trusting stance alongside their conniving men. After all, all the rumor-laden history books can’t be wrong. Beyond JFK, at least once it was printed that even Richard Nixon was naughty during his White House years – as difficult as that may be to envision.
Nonetheless, America is now faced with the possibility of having the first adulterous FLOTUS bedding down at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – or, as far as we know, she would be the first one.
This is not being scandalous either. It has been published that Callista Gingrich testified in 1999 that she and Newt began an affair in 1993 – which was when Newt was still married to his second wife Marianne Gingrich. Marianne, of course, just made headlines for Newt by appearing in an ABC-TV ‘Nightline’ interview in which she said Newt requested an open marriage which was to involve Callista. And Newt, of course, denied the story before it even aired as he was answering a question about his second ex-wife’s comment during a live GOP presidential debate on CNN just hours before the nation saw the ex’s interview.
If all of this sounds incredibly and unbelievably confusing – and unreal – pinch yourself – it’s real. It’s not like the White House walls will start shaking if Newt and Callista move in the White House, but let’s face it, it’s going to be a major change from having the wholesome family images of Barack and Michelle Obama, or of George W. and Laura Bush – or even of the Mitt Romneys or the Rick Santorums or the Ron Pauls.
Here’s what we know about the potential FLOTUS Callista Gingrich, other than the fact that she messed around with Newt while he was married to Marianne in the 1990s and became Newt’s third wife sometime after he divorced his second wife.
She was born on March 4, 1966 in Whitehall, Wisconsin and named Callista Louise Bisek. While her biggest claim to fame is having had an affair with and is now married to former U.S. Speaker of the House and GOP presidential candidate of 2012 Newt Gingrich, she is also an honored graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and currently the president of Gingrich Productions which is based in Washington, D.C. Additionally, she is the president of the Gingrich Foundation, a charitable nonprofit corporation.
She has done voice work on films at Gingrich Productions, written children’s books, and has had her photography published by name publishers. The third Mrs. Newt Gingrich also sings and plays the French horn. According to Wikipedia, she is a Republican – which most people have figured out – and a Roman Catholic.
Through the years, she worked in Washington, D.C. from 1988 to 2005 as a staffer in the United States House of Representatives, for the House Committee on Agriculture, and in the congressional office of Representative Steve Gunderson who is a Republican from Callista’s home state of Wisconsin. Undoubtedly, she met Newt sometime after 1988 when she began working and playing in the nation’s capital – the same town that Newt was working in during the 1990s.
She currently lives in McClean, Virginia with husband Newt.
So, Callista Gingrich as the First Lady of the United States. Though this certainly wasn’t what Barack Obama would have meant back in 2008, perhaps we’re finally going to get a ‘change’ in the White House like he promised us.
