Only a few days after his fellow candidates in the presidential race questioned his tax returns, Newt Gingrich has come forth, demanding that Romney should also produce a verifiable certificate of birth in the United States.
“It has become very clear to me and my colleagues,” said Gingrich, “that Mr. Romney is hiding more from the American people than his questionable financial dealings. I feel that all of his secrets should be revealed immediately, before he can continue his path to eventually dropping out of the race.”
A cloud of controversy has engulfed Congress with the announcement by Gingrich, with many members quite puzzled as to what his goal is. “Mitt is a confirmed Mormon, and though he served as a missionary in France, he is clearly an American. This is yet another attempt by Mr. Gingrich to distract voters from his own flaws, which, not unlike ourselves, are too many to list at this time.”
Gingrich returned with a rebuttal to comments made by members of Congress, stating that, “since France is not in the United States, I question Mr. Romney’s dedication to America, and his family values, in hopes that people will forget that I have none in both categories.”
Sources close to Romney said that he had no comment at this time, but was discussing future political maneuvers with Gingrich’s second ex-wife, Marianne.
