Serial adulterer and barely relevant Republican presidential Candidate, Newt Gingrich, appalled many with his Dickensian economic child labor plan of having school children from impoverished neighborhoods perform custodial duties. Despite having the obligatory “I’m not Mitt Romney” moment of popularity, Newt has failed miserably in the primaries, having only won South Carolina, and is scaling back staff faster than Mitt Romney fires factory workers. But that certainly hasn’t stopped people from expressing their complete and utter disgust of Gingrich.
During an event (apparently Newt still has them) at Georgetown University, a former Georgetown student who used to work as a janitor expressed his contempt to the fledgling presidential candidate over his janitor remarks.
“For me, it was embarrassing to be a janitor at my own high school. … I was poor. My mom was working super hard. I did not feel empowered by serving my classmates,” Hector Cendejas said, according to the Washington Post. “Why not invest on these kids to work for a law firm?”
“Your remark was a little offensive to me,” added Cendejas.
