From Joe DeSantis, one of the few Newt Gingrich advisors still working for him, on why the rest of his team quit en masse last week:

Newt was just too smart for those dullards! That explains it.

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
