Back in 1977, when Newt Gingrich was a professor at West Georgia College, he had an affair with Anne Manning, the wife of another professor.

"We had oral sex," Anne Manning revealed. "He prefers that modus operandi because then he can say, 'I never slept with her.'" She added that Gingrich threatened her: "If you ever tell anybody about this, I'll say you're lying." This anticipated Bill Clinton's defense in the Monica Lewinsky scandal by many years. Great minds think alike!

Back in 1994, when Gingrich became Speaker, spouting family values rhetoric, Democrats were livid, because everyone on Capitol Hill knew that Gingrich was dating Calista Bisek, a Congressional aide who was 23 years younger.
Gingrich is now going through his second divorce. Lawyers for his estranged second wife, Marianne, have won the right to depose Calista Bisek.
