• Newt Gingrich Makes Ultimate Sacrifice, Closes Tiffany's Credit Line

    The sacrifices that candidates make for their campaigns. Some of them are just too heartbreaking to fathom

    Presidential candidate and former House speaker Newt Gingrich has released his personal financial disclosure report.

    The document confirms that Gingrich closed his interest-free credit line at Tiffany's. The Post reported last month that Gingrich had a second 2010 credit line of $500,000 to $1 million at the jewelry company. In May, personal financial disclosure forms for Gingrich’s wife, Callista, showed that the family had carried a line of credit ranging between $250,000 and $500,000 at Tiffany’s during 2005 and 2006.

    So, what does this mean? He's going to have to pay in cash? Or maybe he can send his valet over with a trunk full of gold doubloons. Either way, kind of humiliating. He's really going to be the punchline of the yacht club this season.

    Just don't tell me he was forced to empty out his caviar wading pool. Tell me that's not happening. Because I will cry.
