Newt Gingrich said in an interview with conservative website Newsmax that he believes President Obama's decision to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act is a potentially impeachable offense.

He did say, however, that if a hypothetical President Sarah Palin similarly rejected congressional legislation, she would be crucified by the left.
