Irish Times Reports Newt Gingrich Associated with Washington Call Girl Ring

    When the campaign by the special prosecutor, Mr Kenneth Starr, to impeach Mr Clinton for his deceit concerning his affair with Ms Monica Lewinsky began to pick up steam, Mr Flynt placed a full page ad in the Washington Post offering to pay $1 million to anyone who could prove they had a sexual affair with a member of Congress, or a high-ranking government official. His aim, he said, was to expose hypocrisy.

    "My whole objective was about hypocrisy," he said. "If these people on the Hill are going to sit in judgment, they should not have skeletons in their own closets. Sex should be a private matter."

    Mr Flynt hired a Washington firm of former CIA and FBI officials to help him assess the responses to his ad and confirm their credibility. One of the first investigations surrounded Mr Newt Gingrich, then Speaker of the House.

    Mr Flynt began negotiating with several parties, people described as having an association with a prostitution ring, for a series of credit card receipts that showed Mr Gingrich paying for services.

    In the midst of that negotiation, Mr Gingrich resigned suddenly. Then Mr Flynt and his team began discussions with four women who claimed they had extra-marital affairs with Mr Robert Livingston, the incoming Speaker of the House. Aware of the investigation, Mr Livingston abruptly announced he had strayed from his wife of 33 years "on occasion", but that she had forgiven him and their marriage was solid.

    On the morning of Saturday's impeachment vote, Mr Livingston suddenly resigned, ending a 22-year Congressional career, stunning colleagues and close friends who thought the matter was closed.
