Check-Kiting Con-Man Newt Gingrich Has Been Bouncing Checks To Everyone, Forever (VIDEO!)

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Money makes the world go aroundAnd Buzzfeed Wins Lunchtime with this epic old Public Service Announcement about how bankrupt fraud Newt Gingrich is a Congressman Joe Walsh-level monster who cheats everybody in the universe because he is a sociopath. The ad’s got a catchy beat that you could dance to and great lyrics like “Newt Gingrich wrote a rubber check/To the IRS/That checked bounced like all the rest/This time for nine grand” and “Because bouncing checks is such hard work/He raised his pay 40 thou a year.”

That is some good lyrics yo! But you guys, we are worried! We are starting to think Newt Gingrich might not be good with money! Gingrich for SecTreas! The end.

[Buzzfeed]

That picture… are we sure Kim Jong-Il is dead?

Mumbletypeg April 12, 2012 at 2:28 pm

These are blunders of Titanic proportions, Newt.

Mahousu April 12, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Newt is only bouncing checks because the foundations he creates keep going bankrupt before they pay him all the money they "owe" him. So really, it's all the fault of the Obama economy. Send him the bills.

Goonemeritus April 12, 2012 at 2:29 pm

He’s great with money he just doesn’t have enough of it.

Yay! Now defrauding the government! Awesome. No wonder he won't get out of the race. He's hoping everyone hates the IRS more than they loathe him, his 80 million ex-wives and people who pay their taxes on time. With real checks.

Radio福井県 April 12, 2012 at 2:31 pm

It's called "being gingRICH."

Jus_Wonderin April 12, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Wow, not paying bills nets more pocket money. Who would have Newt.

Generation[redacted] April 12, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Wait, I just thought of a solution to our national debt.

MarionNYNY April 12, 2012 at 2:31 pm

But he didn't write any bounced checks for ice delivery. http://motherjones.com/mojo/2012/01/bob-dole-ging

CogitoErgoBibo April 12, 2012 at 2:39 pm

So, in a nut shell, he claims to have ended an anachronistic ice distribution system. However in reality, he just took jobs from the ice distributors and forced legislators to send their most recently hired intern to go get ice twice a day. Why does Gingrich hate interns?

On the other side, I'd rather make up rumors about what was inside in the theoretically empty ice bucket he insisted on carrying around. Boehner's balls? His own lost morality? Lunch?

Not_So_Much April 12, 2012 at 2:31 pm

That scratch-resistant coating on his wife's head isn't cheap.

Looks like it's time to have another shitty 'historical' novel ghost-written.

elgin_pelican April 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

LOL – Callista always brings to mind the final scenes of "Death Becomes Her."

el_donaldo April 12, 2012 at 2:33 pm

But as long as he can string together unrelated buzzwords guaranteed to stoke the rubes' outrage, they'll continue to send him their checks.

SorosBot April 12, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Would you trust that face with your money?

Jus_Wonderin April 12, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Well, no, but I could sure stuff more in there than I can under my mattress.

Biff April 12, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I'm sure there's a perfectly cromulent explanation, such as he just loves his country so much, you guys…

anniegetyerfun April 12, 2012 at 2:53 pm

It'd abundantly clear that he fundamentally cares for this country more than any other candidate. That's indisputable.

AlterNewt April 12, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Lying, adultery, corruption, yes, but writing bad checks? Never!

ManchuCandidate April 12, 2012 at 2:35 pm

"My checks are rubber and you are glue. Your bills bounce off me and stick to YOUUUUUUUUU!!!"

Personal Motto of Newton "Bad Credit" Gingrich

Schmannnity April 12, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Bounces bimbos and checks.

LesBontemps April 12, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Maybe Newt could get a job as a school janitor to help make ends meet.

Radio福井県 April 12, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Two toilets at a time.

SayItWithWookies April 12, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Don't blame Newt — it's Congress' fault for making him pay $300,000 in fines for fraud.

Baconzgood April 12, 2012 at 2:37 pm

He's not very good at stuff. Except shutting down the government for not sitting where he wants to on a plane.

ManchuCandidate April 12, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Not surprising when he views every bill like a wife who gets cancer.

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 12, 2012 at 2:37 pm

People still write checks? I didn't know that was still a thing.

LesBontemps April 12, 2012 at 2:45 pm

If you're going to bounce it, it's still pretty much required.

anniegetyerfun April 12, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Just got back from the grocery store, and I can attest that, yes, people write checks, but not until their entire order has been rung up – THAT'S when you start fishing around for the ol' checkbook.

BaldarTFlagass April 12, 2012 at 2:59 pm

And then they stand there and balance their checkbook right there at the counter.

anniegetyerfun April 12, 2012 at 3:02 pm

I'm pretty sure this guy went as far as taking his teeth out and polishing them while we waited.

BaldarTFlagass April 12, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Man, Roy Orbison looks terrible.

Generation[redacted] April 12, 2012 at 2:39 pm

After being dead for 20 years, he looks surprisingly spry!

BaldarTFlagass April 12, 2012 at 3:01 pm

That's just what Nelson/Spike Wilbury said!

Sir_Fartz_Alot April 12, 2012 at 2:38 pm

that ditty needs MOAR WHORE DIAMONDS

BaldarTFlagass April 12, 2012 at 2:39 pm

I'm surprised Newt didn't offer to send a check to Larry Scheffler there at Las Vegas Graphics to cover his $8,000 invoice.

Callyson April 12, 2012 at 2:40 pm

I'll never be able to listen to Mo Money Mo Problems again…

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 12, 2012 at 2:40 pm

If only passing bad checks were a crime, or enough to lead to the over throw of Congress.

RedneckMuslin April 12, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Tem bitchez ain't free, y'all!

SorosBot April 12, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Well of course; would anyone be willing to fuck Newt without getting lots of whore diamonds in return? I mean, look at him; it probably takes a lot of work to find his cock among those rolls of fat.

SorosBot April 12, 2012 at 2:42 pm

It's not his fault; that first grader Newt hired to balance the checkbooks fucked it up.

edgydrifter April 12, 2012 at 2:45 pm

If Newt pays you with a check and it bounces, blame yourself.

ThankYouJeebus April 12, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Three biggest lies: the check is in the mail, I won't come in your mouth and, uh… I forget. Oops.

James Michael Curley April 12, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Newt thought he still had money in the account because he still had checks in the book.

owhatever April 12, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Oh, that balanced budget stuff, that's for other people. I think big, grand, huge, stupendous thoughts, as did Audie Murphy when he was awarded the Queen's Crown in 1845 and prevented the Japanese from driving the Titanic into Hawaii.

weejee April 12, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Aren't there some hungry gators in Florida that need feeding and would like some rubbery Gummi™ Newt?

IncenseDebate April 12, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Don't write a check with your mouth that your body can't cash.

DetectiveGrey April 12, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Much like white boy gangsters 3OH!3, Gingrich apparently believes he can do anything, anything, anything he wants.

sullivanst April 12, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Fundamentally, we cannot comprehend how fiscally responsible Newt is being by bouncing checks.

barto April 12, 2012 at 2:54 pm

newt just wants to play with the big boyz: fail an enterprise – get a raise!

comrad_darkness April 12, 2012 at 11:18 pm

At taxpayer expense.

mrblifil April 12, 2012 at 3:00 pm

When Calista dumps his loser ass, he won't be bouncing back.

DahBoner April 12, 2012 at 5:03 pm

With the trucker's wipers keeping time, Newt played his bone while Calista sang the No Mo Tiffanys Blues…

Tundra Grifter April 12, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Is that photo James O'keefe's father?

comrad_darkness April 12, 2012 at 11:17 pm

It's not Newt's fault because he was sleeping with his math teacher in high school and therefore didn't have to study. It's all about the free market, people.

ttommyunger April 14, 2012 at 10:05 am

"Insufficient funds? Impossible, I still have checks!"
