Boehner, Quintessential Influence-Peddler

Bob Herbert, New York Times
It’s beyond astonishing to me that John Boehner has a real chance to be speaker of the House of Representatives.I’ve always thought of Mr. Boehner as one of the especially sleazy figures in a capital seething with sleaze. I remember writing about that day back in the mid-’90s when this slick, chain-smoking, quintessential influence-peddler decided to play Santa Claus by handing out checks from tobacco lobbyists to fellow Congressional sleazes right on the floor of the House.
