Former House speaker Newt Gingrich had a second line of credit at the high-end jewelry store Tiffany’s for as much as $1 million dollars, his presidential campaign acknowledged Tuesday.
Joe DeSantis, a spokesman for Gingrich, said that the candidate’s personal financial disclosure filing, which is due within 30 days of his formal entrance into the presidential race, will “show that the Gingriches had a $500,000 to $1 million line of credit at Tiffany’s, that it has a zero balance, and it has been closed.”
DeSantis added that all debts to Tiffany’s had been paid in full. He offered no details about when the second line of credit was taken out, what it was used for or when it was closed.
This revelation comes roughly a month after personal financial disclosure forms for Gingrich’s wife, Callista, showed that the family had carried a line of credit ranging between $250,000 and $500,000 at Tiffany’s during 2005 and 2006.
Maybe Newt's new platform will be 'Vote for Newt and You too Will Know the Glory of Tiffany's"
