Newt Gingrich Pimps Out His Email List to Pay His Bills — Again

First he racks up an $800,000 bill for a website and email system that should have cost him a few grand, then he rents out his email list to LifeLock, now he’s letting someone sell you stock advice. What’s next, pushing gold a la Glenn Beck? Rent-a-Center endorsements? Natural Male Enhancement? Here’s the intro text to the Newtster email that arrived today:

Please find a special message from one of our advertisers, Fisher Investments. Please note that the following message reflects the opinions and representations of our advertiser alone, and not necessarily the opinion or editorial positions of the Newt 2012 campaign.

Fisher Investments

Where is the stock market headed?

So glad this hucksterism doesn’t reflect Newt’s own editorial position! His predictive abilities haven’t exactly stood the test of time of late…. Full text here, as a PDF. I’d call this pitiful, but that would be charitable. Sad to see you go, Newt! You’ve brought so much joy to the e.politics bunker this year.
