Gingrich Says Elections are Rigged

Newt Gingrich told MSNBC that elections are "rigged, frankly, in favor of the wealthy."

Said Gingrich: "It is very difficult in America today. If you look at New York where Mayor Bloomberg spent an extraordinary amount of personal money to buy the mayor's office for the third time. It is fairly hard to compete with a billionaire if -- if they get to spend all the money they want and the middle-class candidate's raising money in $2,500 units. So I think the current system is rigged, frankly, in favor of the wealthy."
