The Professor and Marianne

As a previous post mentioned, a 1997 report from the House Commmittee on Ethics is a valuable resource on Newt Gingrich. Among its many exhibits is a set of Gingrich's notes from a 1992 meeting with a potential donor. On one page, Gingrich drew a stick figure representing himself ("N") and a smaller one for this then-wife Marianne ("M").  They are at the center of a constellation including: "House and other GOP members, National Whip, technology, quality, Olympics, the rest OF Georgia GOP, 6th District, Military Foreign policy, Speeches, C-SPAN, Other GOP, recreation, Mission-Movement planning-development, health, Teach?, write books."
