WASHINGTON — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich struck a nerve in the fashion industry and in human and labor rights circles after calling child labor laws “truly stupid” in a public appearance last month.
Gingrich, a former Speaker of the House who has gained significant ground in the polls and is seriously challenging Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination, said: “It’s tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children, in, first of all, child laws, which are truly stupid.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
