Newt Gingrich Bouncing Checks in Utah

Hopefully with debt of over $4.5 million he will soon drop out and then there will be no more party distractions to prevent Dr. Paul from winning the entire thing :)

"Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich may not appear on the ballot for the June 26 Utah primary, after a $500 check - the required filing fee - bounced, an official said.

State election director Mark Thomas told ABC News that a $500 check given by the Gingrich campaign to secure his place on the Utah ballot bounced on March 27.

"Our office immediately attempted to contact the campaign and the designated agent but no phone calls were returned," Thomas said. "We also asked the state Republican Party to assist us, but they also could not get into communication with them, although I do not know how they attempted to contact them."

Newt's stepford wife "Calista" has over a million dollars in jewelry that Newt bought her at Tiffany's...maybe she could pawn a necklace?

Just not in Vegas...

Corey Harrison and Chumlee of the show "Pawn Stars" endorsed Ron Paul so she better not take her jewelry there.

"We'll give you $1 for that diamond necklace. It's all about the Ron Paul in this pawn shop."


Rid herself of her pawn. Newt, the pawn ain't gonna be kinged!

Ain't gonna make it across the board anyway. Ain't a knight... Nor bishop... Nor rook.

Won't somebody who does photoshop stuff-PLEASE do one of Newt in his new Emperor of the Moon suit???

We could distrubute it far and wide and make him look even more ridiculous.

It's not funny to laugh for the disgrace of other human being no matter if you agree or disagree with him.


Thanks for mentioning this. I don't intend to harp on the poster, but I also want to express some related thoughts. I find it important to always maintain a healthy sense of humility and our own experiences should tell us how uncomfortable it feels to be the subject of some ridicule and whatnot. I figure we should be thankful to have some cause that we have a passion for. I know it feels good to speak out and have a jab and I wouldn't deny wanting to do the same sometimes. But I think it feels better to, win or lose, live or die, pursue all things with as much grace as possible. Always do your best and always be excellent to each other. lol :-)

Balloon brain, big belly,

Balloon brain, big belly, bubble bursting, budget bouncing blowhole.

What the hell Newt?

Stop bouncing checks or we'll never get that moon base!

guess the sin of greed

guess the sin of greed finally is coming back to bite himin the butt. karma's a b1tch.

Those darn promissory notes to return debt...

Maybe Newt just needs to be informed that Utah is now again accepting Gold and Silver as legal tender, which could have saved him from all of this embarrassment.

A check is just a promise that someone can obtain dollars which are themselves just a promise of yet someone else to return a debt that hopefully sometime in the future will be returned to the people who issued the dollars and whom have created those dollars for the sole purpose of tracking the debts of others at no risk to the issuers of the dollars themselves.

Most of those dollars as promises aren't even worth the paper they aren't even printed on.

Raise it !

Newt should have emulate what the congress has been doing for the past 100 years. Say Raise his campaign DEBT CEILING to 10 Million or his check will bounce, and thats not a good sign of a wanna be President. People will ask if you cant tidy up ur account in the campaign, what more if he accounts for the nations budget or worse the moon base colony his been promising.

Heard Newt on the Radio today

He was on with Laura Ingraham(please don't blast me for listening, I was driving and I can at least tolerate her, plus she is on a small local station that I want to support for carrying Jerry Doyle). Anyway, she asked him about the bounced check and he said he hadn't heard about it until now and that it must be some kind of error. You could tell he was lying and she seemed like she wanted to call him on it. Apparently Newt would have us believe that he hadn't even heard about something going on with his campaign that had already been on the frontpage of Drudge for like 12 hours. She closed the segment by telling him not to feel bad, that we all have bounced checks at some point.

Word to the wise: get paid upfront if Newt wants you to help

build the moon base.

@ 1/7th the gravity (or so..)

you get a lot more bounce...


Good play on words!

Wouldn't it be better for the Paul campaign...

...if Newt was running in Utah? The more voters we can take from Romney in Utah the better, right?

Its so funny it's sobering

This is a man running for the most powerful position in the world. The bounced check is bad - but could happen to anyone. The fact that they cannot even get in touch with someone - yet the media doesn't call BS on his whole campaign. Its not a campaign - its a book drive. We no longer have a press - we have Russian media circa 1985.

Russian Free Press, 1917

The Russians are not coming for dinner sir. Seems they have lost all their money in some sort of a scuffle.

They would like to know if your offer still stands. If available, would you be so kind as to send your surrey & related travel expenses?

"This is another example of why I am perfect for the office of President. My inability to make good on a simple $500 check is exactly the kind of resources this nation needs to manage it's multi-trillion dollar economy. I have plenty of experience at being in debt." --Newt Gingrich



lol :-P

lol :-P

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

Why did this get front paged over this one?:


Just curious how that works since it was posted yesterday and has 27 up votes.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Search before posting. It is very difficult to get the jump on the investigative journalists and editors of the DP.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

funny thing is I did use the

funny thing is I did use the search so I wouldn't be double threading but didn't find it....

Either way Newt's days in this race are numbered.

If Paul's campaign had done this,

you can be sure the blackout would be over. ;)

Paul Bouncing a Fee Payment

would probably be in the form of accidentally dropping a silver round on the floor while getting his wallet out.

Paul's almost boringly responsible with his money. His consistently good investment and careful accounting has been legendary for decades. (-:

Plus They Wouldn't Have Reached Out To The Campaign

Gingrich is inept. If it weren't for Adelson, he'd have been gone long ago.
