Newt Gingrich Says Elections Rigged “In Favor Of The Wealthy”

June 13, 2012

Say it isn’t so.

“It is very difficult in America today,” he told MSNBC’s Al Sharpton. “If you look at New York where Mayor Bloomberg spent an extraordinary amount of personal money to buy the mayor’s office for the third time. It is fairly hard to compete with a billionaire if — if they get to spend all the money they want and the middle-class candidate’s raising money in $2,500 units. So I think the current system is rigged, frankly, in favor of the wealthy.”

    I guess Newt should know. He must have time on his hands now that he’s lost his personal Big Daddy-deep pocketed financial backer. Or maybe he just spent some time observing Wisconsin’s recall elections…. (I wonder if he actually thinks about what he says before he says it.)
