Correcting the Record on Newt's "Deathbed Divorce"

Well, we've heard for years that Newt Gingrich "divorced his wife on her deathbed as she lay dying of cancer so he could be married to someone else."

Not true, like most media stories about Republicans.

Sez who?

Sez his (and her!) daughter, who was there. In short:
My mother and father were already in the process of getting a divorce, which she requested.

Dad took my sister and me to the hospital to see our mother.

She had undergone surgery the day before to remove a tumor.

The tumor was benign.

As with many divorces, it was hard and painful for all involved, but life continued.

As have many families, we have healed; we have moved on.

We are not a perfect family, but we are knit together through common bonds, commitment and love.

My mother and father are alive and well, and my sister and I are blessed to have a close relationship with them both.

So. That puts paid to THAT media lie. I can't wait to hear the next one.
