Newt Gingrich

Tony Sidaway
Some sources on my Wikipedia search are showing reports that prospective US
Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich's staff have become embroiled over
edits they wanted made to his Wikipedia article.

Given the prominence of the personage and the current point in the
seemingly interminable US election cycle, the more eyes on this the better.
Gingrich is probably more sympathetic to Wikipedia than most politicians
but we probably wouldn't want to get into a fight needlessly, especially
one in which we may appear to take a partisan position.

It was reported in the NY Times that the campaign manager has a habit of
whitewashing the article on Callista Gingrich.

Re: Newt Gingrich

Steve Summit
I saw that, too.
Michele Dowd, in <http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/05/opinion/sunday/dowd-the-great-mans-wife.html>.
Although there's evidence at [[Talk:Callista_Gingrich]] that COI
policies are being observed.
