Some people have no shame. Getting your picture taken several times per day can be tiring for sure, but, it’s part of the game, so man up. If this is an example of  ‘Southern Strategy”, I’m glad I’m a Yankee.

 

Newt Gingrich’s Southern strategy to get back into the race for the Republican presidential nomination has collapsed, and his campaign is in the red, but the former US House of Representatives speaker is marching on.

In Delaware Monday, Gingrich started charging $50 to anyone who wanted to take a photo with him following a campaign speech to Republicans.

“Some campaigns make you travel all the way to Wall Street to pay $2,500 for a photo with a candidate,” a Gingrich spokesman told the National Journal, which broke the story. “We are trying out a new tactic and asking our supporters at our rallies for a nominal donation. And guess what, it is working.”
