Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference today, Saturday, November 12th to demand that Newton Gingrich authorize the release of his Freddie Mac files and that Freddie Mac independently release the “Gingrich files.” Martin calls Newton and Callista Gingrich “classic Washington grifters” who profited from the collapse of America’s economy. Andy says Gingrich’s “surge” is based on Gingrich’s latest fraud scheme to conceal the true nature of his relentless illegal activity in Washington. In an Atlanta news conference Andy previously called Gingrich “unfit” (link below).

(NEW YORK) (November 12, 2011) Corruption-fighting Independent Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin will hold a New York City news conference today, Saturday, November 12th to demand that Freddie Mac and Presidential Candidate Newton Gingrich release all of Gingrich’s files at Freddie Mac including emails, reports, internal memos and Gingrich’s “consulting” contract.
Andy calls Newton Gingrich “the latest con man in a ‘Hit Parade of Hucksters’ that is devastating the Republican Party’s presidential campaign and helping to reelect Barack Obama.”
Andy previously asked the IRS to investigate Gingrich’s misuse of tax-exempt organizations to support Gingrich’s lavish lifestyle and political activity (see Atlanta link below).
“Gingrich says that he was hired as a ‘historian’ by Freddie Mac,” Andy says. “If Gingrich has nothing to hide, why should he hide it? A simple letter by Gingrich to Freddie Mac authorizing the release of Gingrich’s complete records will lift the curtain of suspicion and scandal that now envelops Gingrich’s latest financial scam in Washington.
“How can anyone in the Republican Party seriously consider voting for a man whose entire professional life has been a series of financial and political scams,” Andy asks. “The latest scam is claiming Gingrich was paid $300,000 to be a ‘historian’ for Freddie Mac. Gingrich was nothing more than an influence peddler, which is why his own party had previously thrown him out of congress.
“The Republican Party’s presidential prospects are being undermined by a ‘Hit Parade of Hucksters’ that is appealing to primary voters while concealing their histories of corporate misfeasance (Herman Cain) or blatantly lying about insider profit making deals such as Gingrich’s looting of Freddie Mac.
“Gingrich is now the Republican Party’s own ‘face’ of the financial crisis that has devastated Americans. How does he have the gall to claim he was paid a third of a million dollars to be a ‘historian?’ How can Gingrich attack Democrats for looting Freddie Mac when he did the same thing? Gingrich running against Obama’s ‘corruption?’ Give me a break.
“Well let me teach ‘Perfesser Gingrich’ a little historical lesson. The Emperor Nero is reputed to have fiddled while Rome burned. Gingrich was looting Freddie Mac while the government enterprise was collapsing into de facto bankruptcy. Gingrich was looting a bankrupt enterprise and selling ‘influence’ and ‘access’ while Freddie Mac was burning.
“I would like to know which Republican voters think looting Freddie Mac qualifies Gingrich to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate. ‘Newt’ Gingrich should now be known as ‘Fig Newton Gingrich’ because his candidacy is hanging by a Freddie Mac fig leaf.
“Unfortunately for the American people, I am the only Republican presidential candidate with a long and documented history of successfully exposing and fighting political corruption in both parties (www.AndyMartin.com). At a time when the American people are outraged that their nation’s financial health has been poisoned by influence peddlers such as Gingrich, I am the only Republican presidential candidate who can credibly stand up to Barack ‘Solyndra’ Obama.
“Gingrich is nothing more than a common thief who helped himself to $300,000 while Freddie Mac was collapsing,” Andy charges. “He and Freddie Mac must release any and all of the ‘Gingrich files’ at Freddie Mac. All of them. Not just the Gingrich employment contract but any and all reports, memos, emails or other internal communications which document what Gingrich did, how he did it, and when he did it to earn a third of a million dollars.”
