Newt’s Sister: Vote for Obama

According to polls out on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich has opened a big lead in three of the first four voting states—but there’s one vote he won’t be getting: his sister’s. Candace Gingrich-Jones, Newt’s lesbian half-sister, will be voting for Obama, she told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. Gingrich-Jones said she’s particularly troubled by the GOP’s opposition to gay rights, and while she and Newt are “mutually respectful,” she believes “he is definitely on the wrong side of history when it comes to those issues.”
