It’s getting dirty in South Carolina.
Someone sent out a fake CNN Breaking News alert early Thursday morning claiming that Newt Gingrich pressured his ex-wife to have an abortion.
It’s not clear how many people received the fake email, though at least two members of the South Carolina GOP Executive Committee, who did not want to be named, were among those who found the missive in their inboxes this morning
The fake email read:
“A source close to Marianne Gingrich tells CNN that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich forced her to abort a pregnancy conceived during the affair that preceeded her marriage to Gingrich.”
