Newt Donated $350K to Antigay Effort


Newt Gingrich offered more than vocal support to the ultimately successful campaign to oust three of the nine Iowa supreme court justices who unanimously ruled in favor of marriage equality.

According to, Gingrich bankrolled more than one third of the $850,000 campaign to boot the justices.

The website previously reported on $200,000 Gingrich funneled from an anonymous donor to the antigay group Iowa for Freedom, which was also being funded by the political arm of the American Family Association, AFA Action.

On Wednesday the Associated Press revealed one of Gingrich's many business enterprises, ReAL Action, had donated $125,000 to AFA Action, and The Des Moines Register reported Thursday the group had donated $25,000 to another antigay group, the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition.
