Newt Gingrich's Not-So-Welcome Endorsement

Wow.
Celebrity endorsements are nothing new in the world of advertising, but one dating website is running an ad campaign that probably isn’t such welcome publicity to the famous faces involved.

AshleyMadison.com, which hooks up married people with people they're not married to, mounted a billboard advertisement in Pennsylvania last week featuring Republican presidential hopeful and former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich.

The billboard depicts a frowning, solemn shot of Gingrich, who is holding up one finger as if scolding someone. In reference to Gingrich’s two marriages that ended in divorce due to his admitted infidelities, the billboard features the slogan: “Faithful Republican…Unfaithful Husband. Welcome to the Ashley Madison.com era.”
Gingrich's camp is correct in not responding to this billboard. But man, that is brutal.
