Newt Suggests Romney Guilty Of Foreclosures For Owning Bank Stocks

During the most heated exchange in Thursday’s CNN debate, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney traded punches over Gingrich’s consulting contract for Freddie Mac and Romney’s stock portfolio.

Gingrich pointed out that Romney had investments in Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Goldman Sachs and, therefore, was complicit in multiple mortgage foreclosures. Romney responded with a detailed explanation of his investments and reminded Gingrich that he too had multiple stock positions in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
