Topless Newt Gingrich — On a Rock, In a Hard Place

Filed under: Newt Gingrich, Hot Bodies

TMZ has obtained a photo of a glistening Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich laying topless on a beach in Greece … days before his campaign staff quit over the timing of his two-week vacation.

The photo was taken on June 2 — as Newt chilled out on Paradise Beach on the island of Mykonos.

Newt’s decision to go on the trip — just weeks into a Presidential campaign that got off to a very rocky start — enraged his campaign staff to the point where the majority simply called it quits.

Despite all the drama … he looks pretty relaxed, right??
