THE WASHINGTON TIMES – CHERYL K. CHUMLEY
John Boehner, of former House Majority Speaker fame, dropped a bombshell — or dozens — during an interview with Politico that was just published.
For instance, did you know that fellow Republican Rep. Don Young once pinned Boehner against a wall and held a knife to his throat during a debate about earmarks that went awry? Nope. I did not, either.
And you thought House lawmakers spent all their free time chasing the media.
Boehner also has some blunt opinions of his former congressional mates, calling Jason Chaffetz, who used to serve in the House but now works as a paid Fox News contributor, a “total phony,” who was obsessed “with Chaffetz, it’s always about Chaffetz.
