Gingrich releases Freddie Mac contract - Jan. 23, 2012
The contract “was solely for consulting purposes and not lobbying,” Nancy Desmond, CEO of the Gingrich Group, said in a statement.
But the contract discusses the Gingrich Group’s specific work only briefly, saying the firm is to provide “consulting and related services.”
A copy of the contract is here.
The document, made public by the Gingrich Group, the firm Gingrich founded in 2000, covers only 2006. The firm provided consulting services to Freddie Mac for roughly six years in total.
A person familiar with Gingrich’s work for Freddie Mac told CNNMoney that the widely reported figure of $1.7 million that his firm is said to have earned from Freddie Mac is “generally accurate.”
