"As a Republican congressman, Newt Gingrich filed ethics charges that led Democratic House Speaker Jim Wright to resign in 1989. Later, the House elected Gingrich speaker. Then, in 1998, Gingrich resigned after his own close encounter with an ethics probe. Wright said he didn't want to gloat, but he did compare Gingrich to 'an arsonist who sets fire to his own building without stopping to realize the flames are going to consume his own apartment.'"
