Bum Rap for Newt

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich has been chastised for his response to a gay Iowa voter, during which Gingrich said that those who think gay marriage is the most important issue should support Obama. But, when you go to the video, there was nothing dismissive or disrespectful about what Gingrich said. He even acknowledged that it is "totally legitimate" to support his opponent if the issue is the most important to you. Trying to make it seem like Gingrich somehow dissed gays is a bum rap.

You can see the video for yourself here.
