What Really Happened in the Gingrich Ethics Case?

Romney has been bringing up the fact that Gingrich was expelled from his leadership position based on ethics complaints, and yesterday Nanny Pelosi was grinning from ear to ear about how she could prevent Newt from becoming President based on the investigation. Because I am old, I remembered that there were something like 67 allegations but only one or two that stuck, and considered doing the research to write about what actually did happen then.
Luckily, Byron York did it for me. Read the whole thing for a shameless political hit job to find out what it was that he was guilty of and had to pay a $300,000 fine.
And people wonder why he goes after the "news" moderators for their stupid questions.

And Mitt Romney's super PAC used the fiction to pound Gingrich in Iowa and now again in Florida. The GOP candidates need to get back to following Reagan's 11th commandment - thou shall not speak ill of a fellow Republican. I'm sure there are some "crooks" who need to be bashed, but fact checking and running truthful ads is something all of the campaign staffs need to do more thoroughly.
