Weyrich Rewrites Election History
Topic: Free Congress Foundation

From a Jan. 30 column by the Free Congress Foundation's Paul Weyrich (also appearing at CNSNews.com and Accuracy in Media):

After the 1998 election, with its razor-thin victory for Republicans in the House of Representatives, a dozen conservatives informed the Republican Leadership that they would not vote for Gingrich as Speaker under any circumstance. That was when Tom DeLay and others in the GOP Leadership told Gingrich that the ball game was over.

In fact, Republicans lost five seats in the House in 1998 -- hardly a "razor-thin victory."

UPDATE: Added AIM link.
