Newt Gingrich

Why did Newt Gingrich resign from speaker?

Ironically, he was the real casualty of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, not Bill Clinton.

The news of Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky broke out just before the mid-term elections in 1998. The Republicans hoped the dip in Bill Clinton's popularity would allow them to get more seats. Gingrich predicted they'd make a net gain 6-30 seats. Instead they made a net loss of 5 seats. The Republicans won 6 seats, but the Democrats won 11.

During the campaign, many people had felt the Republicans were only running on the issue of the scandal, rather than policy. As with the previous House election, the Democrats campaigned hard against the policies of Newt Gingrich, who had never been popular ever since the Government Shutdown three years earlier.

Many Republicans turned on Newt Gingrich after the results came him, believing he was becoming a liability. Committee chairman Bob Livingston, a key ally of Gingrich, anounced he would challenge the Speaker. Gingrich decided to resign from the Speakership. He then decided to resign from the House of Representatives altogether, as he did not want to overshadow his successor.

Same-Sex Marriage
Newt Gingrich

How is Newt Gingrich's belief in the sanctity of heterosexual marriage reflected in his personal life?

His actions do not seem to correspond to his stated beliefs. Famously, Mr. Gingrich cheated on his first wife, then divorced her, then married the woman he was cheating on her with. Then, he cheated on his second wife, divorced her, then married the woman he was cheating on her with. Commentators have noted that Gingrich himself was involved in an extramarital affair during the same time period in the 1990s that he was calling for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton because of the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal.

UPDATE:

On December 20, 2012, conservative Republican Newt Gingrich, who famously has a lesbian daughter, announced that he has given up his opposition to same-sex marriage. He said that its legalization is inevitable and that he is okay with that. He encouraged his fellow Republicans to likewise cease their opposition to the legalization of same-sex marriage.

Did Newt Gingrich receive annulments from the Catholic Church?

I can not answer how many annulments Newt may have received. I am aware of one and that was to his second wife. When Newt married her, she was a divorcee. The Catholic Church does not recognize divorce so considered his marriage to her as being invalid. Newt is a recent convert, or convert in progress, to Catholicism. It is not a matter of public record of what his current status as a Catholic is at this time nor am I able to find any references to other annulments.
