Newt Gingrich

Admitted House rules violations have put Newt Gingrich's future as Speaker of the House in jeopardy. Members of a House ethics panel have come up with a tentative agreement to punish Mr. Gingrich — a reprimand that would allow him to keep his job. But will his House co-workers grant him the same privilege? On the next Talk of the Nation, host Ray Suarez will talk with Gingrich supporters and critics in Congress about the Speaker's actions, and his future. Guests: Representative David Dreier (R-28th CA) Other Representative (D- NY) Listeners call in.
