Romney Offers $1M for Newt Docs

Now that everyone has a better idea of just how much money Mitt Romney actually has, he doesn't need to make measly $10,000 bets for the public’s benefit—he can just go all out. The latest email from the Romney campaign offers supporters a $1.6 million reward for the person who can present Newt Gingrich’s contract with Freddie Mac. Romney has accused Gingrich of lobbying for the federal mortgage firm, but Gingrich insists he was hired to help as a historian. While the Gingrich camp did release a contract from 2006, the memo says that this “covers just one year of his multiple years of service and documents only $300,000 of the $1.6 million he received from the mortgage company.”
