Newt Gingrich Bit By Angry Penguin


A penguin at the St. Louis Zoo, who was reportedly angry over a bounced check from the Newt Gingrich campaign, bit the candidate on the finger out of retaliation. The penguin could not be reached for comment to verify this story. However, the former Speaker of the House did say he will be selling his donor lists to raise funds.

The day after Newt Gingrich was bit by a penguin at a zoo, he acknowledged he is “the underdog” and said his campaign began renting their donor list because they needed money.

“Money — it is a very common reason why people rent things out,” Gingrich said standing inside the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C. “We wanted the money.”
Being roughly $4.5 million in debt has caused the Gingrich campaign to rent out their list of donors, POLITICO reported Friday.
