here is an excerpt ......
Back in 1994 on the eve of a midterm election, House Speaker Newt Gingrich used the horrifying case of Susan Smith, who had killed her two young children in hopes of being united with her lover, as evidence that the Democrats were ruining the country, saying: "How a mother can kill her two children,14 months and 3 years, in hopes that her boyfriend would like her is just a sign of how sick the system is, and I think people want to change. The only way you get change is to vote Republican."
Gingrich's charge that Smith's murder of her children had something to do with the Democratic Party was deluded and slanderous from the start, and most thought that capitalizing politically on such a horrible event was disgusting. This did not keep the media from publicizing his claim, however, and for all anyone knows Gingrich's smear tipped some votes the Republicans' way. In any case, the election was a big victory for Newt.
Only after the election did the real facts come out. Susan Smith's stepfather, Beverly Russell, was far from a Democrat: he was a figure of some importance in the South Carolina Republican Party and in Pat Robertson's Christian Coalition (and in fact had just recently been investigated for misusing CC funds). This revelation alone invalidated Gingrich's ludicrous argument; but on top of this it turned out that Russell had been molesting Smith for years, starting when Smith was in her middle teens.
So see your Boy Newt opened up a can of worms he didnt want no part of ....... and you are about to do the same
