"Ethically Challenged" Newt Gingrich Lectures America's Poor

Newt Gingrich: English: Newt Gingrich at a political conferen...                          Image via Wikipedia
"Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works, so they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday."

Newt Gingrich is going to lecture American youths on the work ethic?
Newt has no idea what is ethical.  After an almost year long investigation Newt was charged with 84 ethics violations.  The house voted 395-28 with 5 voting present to adopt the select committee's ethics report on Speaker Gingrich.  Newt  is lecturing the poor on the work ethic, but right after Newt announced his run for President of the US, he went on a two week luxury cruise and almost his entire campaign staff quit in protest.   Newt also isn't on the GOP primary ballot in Missouri, he neglected to fill out the paperwork. 
Newt also wants to repeal child labor laws and fire union janitors in our schools and have the poor children work as janitors.
"I believe the kids could mop the floor and clean up the bathroom and get paid for it, and it would be OK,"
It would be OK?  Okay for whom?  Sure, the rich 1% who don't want to pay taxes will love it,  but is it okay for the kids?  Okay for the parents who have chores that need doing at home?  Okay for the now unemployed janitors who have to compete with child labor for a living wage to feed their family? 

I'll start listening to Newt Gingrich on Ethics right after I finish Hermann Cain's lecture on sexual harassment in the workplace.
