Gingrich Rents Donor List

"Scrambling to dig himself out of a $4.5 million hole," Newt Gingrich "has resorted to renting his presidential campaign's most valuable asset - its donor list - for as much as $26,000-a-pop," Politico reports.

"Campaign insiders attribute the problems partly to Gingrich and his wife Callista's, asserting that the couple was unwilling to downgrade from private jets and security details even as the campaign floundered. Insiders say Callista Gingrich required an entourage of at least two staffers - including one who dressed in an elephant costume to promote her children's book - and a contracted security guard who followed her even on non-campaign trips."
