(Newser) – A new/old potential wealth gaffe from the mouth of Mitt Romney. The GOP candidate apparently gushed about his wife's much-deserved time off the campaign trail spent riding her "Austrian warmblood" horses (though he prefers his own "Missouri foxtrotter"); each costs as much as a pricey sports car. He made the latest revelation before a February interview on Fox—which aired shortly after his campaign slammed President Obama for wasting too much time golfing. He and Sean Hannity even guffaw about the footage of their pre-interview primping getting leaked. "You don't want to have a John Edwards moment," Hannity quips.

The video nugget is likely the first of many to come from a Fox News "mole," now working for Gawker. The mole plans to keep his/her day job while tattling on his/her employer—and, apparently, news subjects. The mole hopes to leave Fox "sooner rather than later," he/she notes. "But I can't just leave quietly, can I? Where's the fun in that?" Click to see the video of Romney prepping for the Hannity interview.
