Quickie- Newt Gingrich Still Has Secret Service Protection


Because he's still officially a presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich is "likely costing the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars a day with his Secret Service detail on the campaign trail," the Daily Caller reports.

Gingrich recently had three people on his personal security detail, though sometimes there are "many more."

I know in the big picture it's not much, but it feels very wrong for tax payers to be footing the bill for what is obviously now just a vanity campaign to generate income in the future. Give it up Newt. Via.

  • Whaaaaatt????

    And he talks about "government waste".  

  • David G.

    Newt's government protection is just against Penguins only.  There's no longer any fear that he'll be targeted for anything but laughter, and so far, they haven't passed a law against that.  DG
