Candice Gingrich

Danny talks to Candace Gingrich, half sister of House Speaker Newt Gingrich, about her new book `The Accidental Activist' (Scribner Publishing) She talks of the pain she felt when she learned through research of Newt's congressional record and speeches, how he felt about homosexuals. She admits that she has become a national spokesperson on the issue because of her famous brother, but isn't bothered by that because she says the situation has given her a chance to speak out about something she feels deeply about.
