Gingrich Trying to Release Freddie Mac Contract

The Republican presidential candidates are really trying to open up to the public. Not only will Mitt Romney be releasing his tax records this week, Newt Gingrich announced that he is working on releasing his contract with Freddie Mac. His work with the mortgage firm has been the subject of scrutiny, sparking arguments from rivals such as Romney that Gingrich is a corrupt political insider. Though Gingrich acknowledges that his Freddie contract would be helpful if released, he maintains that he was not a lobbyist and that the person who's records should be public is Romney. "Here's somebody who has released none of his business records, who has decided to make a stand on transparency without being transparent," he said.
