Book: Newt Gingrich Spent $1 Million on Jewelry to Get Wife on Board
A new book claims Newt Gingrich spent $1 million on jewelry to "buy off" his reluctant wife and stop her objecting to his running for president.
"Election 2012: The Battle Begins," by reporters Tom Bevan and Carl Cannon, follows up on previous reports about Gingrich's unpaid $500,000 charge account at Tiffany's and his Greek cruise with his third wife, Callista.
Gingrich's staff denied the latest account, which details the GOP hopeful's extravagant spending while he professes to be a fiscal conservative.
Unidentified sources in the book are believed to be former Gingrich aides, many of whom now work for rival Rick Perry.
The Bevan-Cannon e-book was released on Friday for $2.99 by Crown Publishing, and will be followed by two more installments, reported the Daily Mail of London.
