:30 ad run starting Jan. 23, 2012 in FL.

[Music][ticking SFX] Male Announcer:  While Florida families lost everything in the housing crisis, Newt Gingrich cashed in [cash register SFX].

[ticking SFX] Gingrich was paid over $1.6 million [cash register SFX] by the scandal-ridden agency that helped create the crisis.

Gingrich: "And I offered advice.  And my advice as a historian…”

Male Announcer: An historian.  Really?

[ticking SFX] Sanctioned for ethics violations.

Gingrich resigned from Congress in disgrace.

And then cashed in as a DC insider.

If Newt wins, this guy would be very happy.

Romney (voiceover): I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message.

Notes: A direct attack from Romney for President, not one of the super PACs.  According to the Romney campaign press release...

While Florida families struggled during the housing crisis, Newt Gingrich cashed in while working for Freddie Mac. After being sanctioned for ethics violations and resigning in disgrace, Newt Gingrich cashed in as a D.C. insider. President Obama and his campaign would be very happy if Newt Gingrich is the nominee.

“Newt Gingrich says he was not a lobbyist – he was just a politician who was paid millions after he left Congress to influence his friends in Washington. When it comes to his work for Freddie Mac, we still have more questions than answers. Speaker Gingrich should immediately make his Freddie Mac contract and work product available to the public.” –Gail Gitcho, Romney Communications Director
