Speaking of Those ‘Swing’ Counties Outside Philly….

Dec 19, 2011 2:48pm

The Allentown (Penn.) Morning Call reports that “AshleyMadison.com,” a website for would-be adulterers has posted a billboard in Bucks County, Penn., with a picture of Newt Gingrich making a “ssshhh” sign and reading: “Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband. Welcome to the Ashleymadison.com Era.”

The founder of the website said in a statement that, “Now that Newt is the leading contender in the race for the GOP nomination, we felt compelled to make a point to illustrate how times have changed when a serial divorcee/adulterer is capturing the hearts of the American people. Gingrich proves that marital fidelity has no bearing on someone’s ability to do a job. Rather than judge him, Americans have finally embraced the reality that affairs are commonplace, and perhaps paradoxically, might be an indication of great leadership to come. He is not the first nor last politician who will step outside of their marriage.”

He added that Pennsylvania is the only state where membership did not decline this month.

Bucks County is one of the swing areas around Philadelphia … apparently in more ways than one.
