News Roundup for 6/14/11

Newt Gingrich, on a book signing tour where he sold books to Newt Gingrich

-Headline of the day-
"Newt Gingrich Charity Paid Cash To Gingrich For-Profit Business."

If there ever was a presidential campaign in need of a shot in the arm, it's Newt Gingrich's. Newton got that shot today, but it turned out to be poison. Brian Ross's investigative team over at ABC have discover that Gingrich has basically been money laundering.

"The charity, Renewing American Leadership, not only featured Gingrich on its website and in fundraising letters, it also paid $220,000 over two years to one of Gingrich's for-profit companies, Gingrich Communications," the report tells us. "It purchased cases of Gingrich's books and bought up copies of DVDs produced by another of the former House speaker's entities, Gingrich Productions."

If this all sounds familiar to you, it should. Some people never learn -- or, at least, never figure out a different scam to run. (ABC News)
