A porn DVD superstore in Van Nuys, Calif., was named "entrepreneur of the year" by Newt Gingrich's American Solutions for Winning the Future PAC, which credited it with helping to -- ahem -- stimulate the economy.
"Newt would like to arrange a private dinner with you at the historic Capitol Hill Club on the evening of October 7, 2009 in Washington... You’ll dine privately with Newt at this exclusive venue and he’ll take the occasion to present you with your well deserved award and have your photo taken together." the Pink Visual store was told in a faxed invitation, which was later rescinded.Think Progress adds
Ironically, on May 17, 1995, Gingrich led a press conference on Capitol Hill announcing the Christian Coalition’s 10-point “Contract with the American Family,” a conservative legislative wish list. One of the items in the contract: restricting pornography.Awesome.
