Gingrich to FEC: "GFY"

Gingrich is all about fiscal responsibility, unless of course it's his own. The FEC has sent a second letter to the Gingrich campaign requesting "information essential to full public disclosure of your federal election campaign finances." The first letter, sent Oct 29th warned that failure to expand on the broad categories in the campaign's initial filing, including $88,000 in travel reimbursements to the candidate, "could result in an audit or enforcement action."

"You can gauge the level of terror this threat instilled by... [Campaign Treasurer Lisa] Lisker's casual, contemptuous, two-paragraph reply: Nov. 29. Lisker replied that the Gingrich campaign had concluded that "no further itemization is required" for the expenses and so none was forthcoming. Having informed the commission that she could not care less about its preoccupation with campaign finance details, Lisker concluded, "Thank you for bringing these items to our attention.""

You think he'd be able to afford his own travel expenses, what with all the money he saved on cancer bills and alimony that he neglected to pay. Newt Gingrich is to classiness as Jeremy Lin is to being bad at basketball.
