Boehner Beats Blunt!

February 02, 2006

In surprising news John Boehner of Ohio beat Roy Blunt of Missouri to become the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives.

Blunt had previously claimed he had enough votes to win. Either people changed their minds or Blunt was lying about the level of his support. If so, this would not be the only problem with Blunt, who like Tom DeLay is Southern Baptist and has been accused of ethical problems (for details see my previous article about Blunt at Ethics Daily).
