The Voice of San Diego is reporting that at least one of Newt’s former Congressional colleagues has his back:
Jailed ex-Congressman Duke Cunningham wants Newt Gingrich to know he’s got the Republican presidential candidate’s back. [snip]
Cunningham tells Gingrich in an electronic message he says he sent to the candidate last month that his fellow prisoners, and their families, support Gingrich:
Newt, a voice out of the past. Down but not out and still fighting. First I do not want anything from you but have been watching the debates. I have 80% of inmates that would vote for you. They might not be able to but their extended families will. [snip]
First when you were Speaker of the House having a Democratic president, you passed every issue working with the house and senate Dems. It was not easy and Mit (sic) just does not have this experience. It also shows that every bone in your body is for helping this nation become great again through conservative government. [ship]
The ideas are sound and pray they can help. What ever (sic) happens we have good candidates that will take out a president that believes that socialist policy is good for America. [snip]
You gave this nation its surplus Newt. You did it.
Somehow it is not a surprise that a Convicted Congressman who used his own House letterhead to draft a bribe by bribe price list, would endorse Newt.
I wonder if The Professor will brag tonight about his former colleagues sending him encouragement and offers of support…
