The Incorruptible John Boehner

September 13th, 2010at 07:24am Posted by Eli

Boehner’s spokesman explains why the story about his boss taking huge bribes from lobbyists is totally false and unfair:

Boehner spokesman Michael Steel says he received a fact-checking email from Times reporter Eric Lipton Friday evening asking if Boehner did in fact oppose the cap on greenhouse gases, the tax change for hedge fund executives, the debit card fee cap, and increased fees on oil and gas companies. “Yes, that is correct,” Steel responded to Lipton, adding “I can tell you why, if you care.” Steel says he received no further notes from Lipton.

Steel says Boehner has long held those positions and does not hold them as a result of lobbying.

So Boehner isn’t corrupt because he already agrees with corporate lobbyists on everything anyway. ┬áThat’s a relief.
