FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday June 9, 2011
Atlanta – Campaign staffers of Newt Gingrich’s flailing presidential bid walked off the job en masse today, demonstrating the power of organized labor and teamwork while serving in a hostile work environment.
“Working on a semi-serious presidential campaign with an absent candidate is incredibly stressful,” said Eric Gray, Democratic Party of Georgia spokesperson. “On the other hand, Republicans are taking ‘job-creation’ seriously by making dozens of new jobs available within Gingrich’s own office.”
According to the AP, Gingrich staffers who resigned include the campaign manager, press spokesman, and key staffers in primary states. The candidate is apparently on a two-week vacation, just three weeks after he began his disastrous 2012 campaign.
“After three grueling weeks on the campaign trail, Gingrich needed a vacation and his entire staff needed to quit the campaign entirely,” concluded Gray. “I don’t know which is worse- his work ethic or his people skills.”
