Can’t Quit Da Ladies

You probably remember how earlier this month Newt Gingrich somehow managed to have his 527 Group award its “Entrepreneur of the Year” award to porn exec Allison Vivas and invite her to an “intimate event” with Newt himself. Vivas was game. But Gingrich’s group soon rescinded the award.

Today we learned there’s been another misunderstanding. Gingrich’s outfit, American Solutions for Winning the Future, gave a new “Entrepreneur of the Year” award to Dawn Rizos, owner of The Lodge, which the Dallas Morning News calls “one of the best-known gentlemen’s clubs in Dallas.”

Alas, again, the offer has been rescinded. But TPM’s Ben Frumin got a chance to talk to Rizos to get her take on getting the Newt jilt.
