Per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jim Galloway, Gingrich says the checks were found in a drawer in his Atlanta office. He accused his former aides of not doing their jobs.
"There were $13,000 in checks that were just sitting in a drawer that nobody processed," Gingrich said in a radio interview. "To have people that I had trusted, I'd known for years, fail that deeply was very sad."
But Scott Reis, the ex-Gingrich staffer who was in charge of the office, tells Galloway that all "vetted" campaign checks had been forwarded to Gingrich's headquarters in Washington.Read More »from Gingrich accuses ex-staffers of mishandling donation checks
