News in Photos: Newt Gingrich Campaign Staff Quits Over "Unpleasant Working Conditions"
Newt Gingrich’s embattled campaign for the 2012 Republican nomination imploded Thursday as two dozen top aides resigned en masse, citing “an explosive and unpleasant working environment.” The shakeup threatens to cripple the former House Speaker’s efforts at a comeback. While many have speculated that Gingrich’s campaign officials quit over his lack of direction, organization, leadership or consistent messaging, those departing blamed Gingrich’s toxic and chronic flatulence – and his insistence on playing the “pull my finger” game – as the reason.
