CREW Requests Gingrich Investigation Records

Maybe we won't have to wait until Newt Gingrich gets the GOP nomination to find out what Nancy Pelosi knows. Pelosi has taunted that she "knows something" about Gingrich from her involvement with his ethics investigation that leads her to believe he will never become president. The House minority leader has insisted that if Gingrich becomes the Republican to challenge Obama in 2012, this information—whatever it is—will become public and surely kill his campaign. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a watchdog group, doesn’t want to let things get that far before finding out. CREW has filed a FOIA request for the documents and plans to discover just what presumably juicy gossip Pelosi is withholding.
