- Ficha técnica
ABOUT THE BOOK Guide To Your Congressman: Newt Gingrich is your definitive pocket guide to Gingrich as a political figure and social persona. Informative and concise, this book serves as an election companion, a history and a profile. MEET THE AUTHOR Deena Shanker is a San Francisco newbie, having just moved out here from New York City. She is a recovering lawyer excited to get back to doing work she loves, like writing. She enjoys taking advantage of California's great outdoors with her dog, Barley, reading fiction, and eating cheese. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The 2012 campaign also has seen its fair share of Gingrich-related scandals. It was recently disclosed that Gingrich's consulting firm received payments of approximately $1.6 million from the federally financed mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Gingrich denies that he was "lobbying", and claims he was merely providing his "advice as a historian". However, Fannie and Freddie are considered by many to be major culprits in the mortgage crisis that demolished the economy and left many Americans without homes, making Gingrich's work with them suspect.
