Congressman John Kline (MN R) and the GOP Congressional Republicans voted for Boehner to be the new Majority Leader. How did he get the Majority Leadership? Well let's see:
Boehner gave $150,000 to 30 Republicans on December 15, according to his filing for the Freedom Project, his leadership PAC. In other words, he 'bought' the votes for his new leadership position. So much for cleaning up GOP corruption.
Kline's friend Boehner is a member of a 'male only' country club with a $75,000 initiation fee. With dues that high Boehner has had to take almost $14,000 in free trips from lobbyist connected Ripon Society. He's repeatedly voted against local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act, against all nondiscrimination legislation and voted to bar same-sex couples in DC from adopting children. He is one of only a handful that refused to sign a pledge indicating that he would discriminate against his own staff based on sexual orientation and consistentistant rating of ZERO from the Human Rights Campaign. (nice guy hey?)
So just how does Kline pronounce Boehner? As his 'friend'
But most Americans would pronounce it as 'Crook'.
