A blogger from the Daily Kos alleged that House Minority Leader John Boehner is having an affair with a lobbyist. The lobbyist denies it. But it’s not just a liberal blogger trying to smear John Boehner before the November elections. The New York Times is in on the action, according to the New York Post.
Insiders on Capitol Hill are buzzing about an upcoming New York Times exposé that will detail an alleged Boehner affair. Sources say the Times is looking for the right time to drop the story in October to sway the election, similar to how the Times reported during the 2008 presidential campaign on an alleged John McCain affair that supposedly had taken place many years before and that was flatly denied by the woman in question.
“Catching Boehner with a mistress is the only way to destroy him politically before the election,” a source said.
A rep for Boehner’s office said, “This is bull[bleep]. The American people oppose Washington Democrats’ job killing, so their desperate liberal allies are resorting to outright lies. It’s low, and it’s dirty.”
Low and dirty – that’s about what we can expect from the New York Times.
