“Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband”: Online Adultery Site Endorses Newt Gingrich

An website dedicated to helping married couples carry out extramarital affairs has thrown in its lot with Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich.


According to, pro-adultery site, the self-proclaimed “most recognizable name in infidelity,”  has endorsed the former House Speaker for president. Ashley Madison has even rented a huge billboard in Bucks County, Pennsylvania to promote Gingrich. It shows a much-larger-than-life Newt with the caption “Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband” beside the image.

Gingrich, who is clinging to his GOP frontrunner status heading into next month’s Iowa caucuses, has been married three times. He readily admits that he was once prone to extramarital affairs but claims to be a changed man since meeting his current wife Callista and converting to Catholicism.

Ashley Madison founder Noel Biderman released a statement explaining his company’s endorsement of Gingrich:

“Now that Newt is the leading contender in the race for the GOP nomination, we felt compelled to make a point to illustrate how times have changed when a serial divorcee/adulterer is capturing the hearts of the American people.”

It continued:

“Gingrich proves that marital fidelity has no bearing on someone’s ability to do a job. Rather than judge him, Americans have finally embraced the reality that affairs are commonplace, and perhaps paradoxically, might be an indication of great leadership to come. He is not the first nor last politician who will step outside of their marriage.” has been courting controversy as of late. Last month, the company raised eyebrows and ire with an ad mocking overweight women in an attempt to appeal to men whose wives may have lost their sex appeal.
