(CNN) - During Thursday's Republican debate, Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney spent time recounting the ethics investigation into former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
The statement: "But the truth is that the members of his own team, his congressional team, after his four years of leadership, they moved to replace him. They also took a vote, and 88 percent of Republicans voted to reprimand the speaker. And he did resign in disgrace after that. This was the first time in American history that a speaker of the House has resigned from the House."FULL STORY
