Pastor Cary Gordon is warning Christian voters in Iowa not to trust Newt Gingrich. The attack, in the form of a three-minute satirical Web video, is a sign of Gingrich's growing strength among evangelical conservatives in a state where that voting bloc is extraordinarily influential.
The hip-hop video circulated by Gordon calls Newt Gingrich "the GOP's Kim Kardashian for his many infidelities on marriage -- gay, straight and his own." The star of the video is a filmmaker and entertainer, Molotov Mitchell, whom Gordon describes as "the guerilla warrior of Judeo-Christian political commentary." (Watch the video below.)
Gordon is sending the video via text message to every registered Republican or non-aligned Iowa voter with a cellphone on record. He says it is necessary because Gingrich's favorability rating among Iowa Christians "keeps going up and up."
Gordon, who leads the 1,000-member Cornerstone Church in Sioux City, Iowa, says he feels he must speak out against Gingrich because "he terrifies me" as a potential leader without a strong moral compass.
