Newt Gingrich (R-GA) loves the country so much that it has caused him to stray from his marriages.
At least, that what the former House speaker seemed to be saying in a recent interview with CBN's David Brody.
"There's no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate," Gingrich said.
"What I can tell you is that when I did things that were wrong, I wasn't trapped in situation ethics, I was doing things that were wrong, and yet, I was doing them," he said.
Gingrich has been married two times and divorced twice.
His second wife, Marianne, revealed to Esquire last year how the former speaker had presented his first wife with the terms of their divorce while she was in the hospital recovering from surgery for uterine cancer in 1980.
