The Newt site's background photo

If you’re wondering about that background image on Newt Gingrich's new web site -- the one featuring a racially diverse crowd peppered with American flags --  it’s a stock photo from Getty Images subsidiary Digital Vision.

We tracked it down here:  http://www.gettyimages.ie/detail/dv1992033/Digital-Vision

A representative from ThinkStock, an image subscription service that’s a part of Getty, says that these stock photos are staged and all of the participants have signed a model release.
