Tumblr hires, the candidates and K St., super PAC funds, and more political law links

ROMNEY, GINGRICH, AND K ST.  Roll Call.  “Grass-roots Republicans may be flocking to Newt Gingrich in key primary states, but when it comes to winning over establishment Washington, D.C., the former Speaker still has a long way to go to catch former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.”

GINGRICH AND K ST.  Politico.  “Newt Gingrich likes to boast that he runs an unconventional campaign that relies more on grassroots outreach than expensive infrastructure, but as he’s soared in the polls, he’s turned his sights to a traditional cash source: K Street.”

URGENT:  RAISE FUNDS.  The Times.  “With just four weeks to go until the Republican primary season begins, Newt Gingrich spent his Monday not on the hustings of Iowa, New Hampshire or South Carolina, but in Midtown Manhattan, prospecting for what his newly resurgent campaign needs most desperately: money.”

TUMBLR PICK UP.  Politico.  “Tumblr has hired former White House technology expert Andrew McLaughlin to join its team in New York.”

SUPER PAC MULLS MONEY.  Story here.  “A cash-flush super PAC that supported Herman Cain plans to pivot away from the conservative businessman and potentially support another GOP hopeful.”

ETHICS COMMITTEE HISTORY IN THE NEWS.  Here.  “Newt Gingrich shot back at House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today, after Pelosi threatened to reveal details of the ethics investigation into the former House Speaker almost 13 years ago.”

CAIN AND MATCHING FUNDS. Story here.  “Undetermined is what will happen to Cain’s campaign war chest. At the end of September the Cain campaign reported $1.3 million in cash on hand, though Cain had loaned the campaign $675,000 of his own money.”
