Newt Gingrich : Callista Bisek



THE FROLIC: Back in 1998, Newt Gingrich was all over then-President Bill Clinton for his moral weaknesses, leading the charge to impeach Clinton for getting it on with a much younger intern. After a long day of cheerleading Clinton’s crucifixion, the then-Speaker of the House went home to the comforting arms of his… mistress. Yep, the leader of the family values pack was seeing Callista Bisek — a woman 23 years his junior — behind his second wife’s back. Pot, meet Kettle. He eventually made an honest woman out of the blonde staffer but kept their near two-year adulterous affair on the down low.

THE FALLOUT: Those in glass houses should never throw stones. In 2007, the über conservative admitted to wooing his now wife while he was still married, but saw his extracurricular activities as far from hypocritical. After all, Clinton was impeached not for having an affair but for lying about it. The spin seemingly saved his career. The Fox News analyst is reportedly considering a run for president in 2012 with his former fling at his side.
