Is Bigoted Troop Defender Sen. John Boehner Cheating On His Wife With a Lobbyist?

Mike Stark has made a career, or at least a few blog headlines, by confronting elected officials without appointments and asking them invasive questions. Like whether Sen. Lindsey Graham is a gay, or whether Rep. Patrick McHenry is too close of a friend to Dorothy. Now Stark is back with accusations that House Minority Leader John Boehner, a family values father of two, is cheating on his wife of 37 years with a lobbyist.

Last year Boehner was the guy opposed the Defense Department’s spending bill because the Matthew Shepard Act was attached to it. This year he opposed it because the compromised DADT repeal was attached to it. And now the stand up lawmaker is accused by Stark of sleeping with Lisbeth Lyons, a lobbyist for the trade group Printing Industries of America. In the above video, you’ll see Boehner doesn’t respond to the question (posed at the Republicans’ launch of their “Pledge to America”), but Stark insists he “began hearing this from several sources last month with increasing amounts of detail” the two were involved.

Next, might Stark get to the bottom of Boehner’s tanning scandal?

Mr. Boehner’s opponents, including the president, delight in painting him as a perpetually tan, country-club Republican out of touch with the American people. Mr. Boehner, in response, talks about his father’s work running the family tavern. To put himself through Xavier University in Cincinnati, he says he worked “every rotten job there was and damn glad to have them,” including janitor, roofer and heavy-equipment driver.

His mother “was always pregnant with cloth diapers hanging everywhere to dry,” says Jerry Vanden Eynden, a childhood friend who manages Candle-Lite, a local candlemaker.

Addressing a perennial source of jokes, Mr. Boehner says his dark complexion is natural, similar to that of his mother and four (of 12) siblings. “I have never been in a tanning bed or used a tanning product,” Mr. Boehner said. His staff showed a high school group photo where he has the darkest face in Moeller High’s all-male class.

    REP. JOHN BOEHNER – He’s in the house not the senate (at least you got it right in the article, Queerty).

    Boehner. What a unfortunate name for a complete dickhead.

  • reason

    Rep. Boehner has the closest relationship with lobbyist in the entire congress spending most of the year in five star hotels and lush gulf courses and to his dismay paying for first class tickets to ride their jets up and down the country. He is also a drunk that hits the bars every night, quite unbecoming of someone in the leadership. Would it be a surprise, the main ingredients are always at his side a lobbyist and a bottle perfect storm for mile high hookups. It would be good fodder for the Democrats but it will not stop the republican storm thats coming in November granted they are coming to power based on frustration not merit; most of the polls show that the public feels that the GOP is less fit to lead than the Democrats.

    Orange is not natural.


    This piece of shit pratcicing true gutter politics, blocking an act named for a kid who was basically crucified simply for being Gay. Because the Gay lifestyle is “immoral”…………

    If only for the way Matt was murdered one would think no one would be so low as to oppose a measure in his name. I gotta repeat this story because it makes such an impact. The most gut wrenching tear your heart right out of your chest and rip it to pieces stories I ever read was an iterview with the nurse who first tended to Matt Sheppard when he was first brought into the ER barely clinging to life. She said that his entire face was covered with dirt, mud, and dried blood. The only part of flesh she could see was the trail his tears made as they ran down his face……………..

    Yet he has zero problems betraying his “sacred vows” of marriage…..

    Like I said in the Eddie Longs (for cock”) post: “Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. It is oh so very obvious the lemming like lunatic rightwing nutbags who support these frauds obviouslsy love having shame showered upon them in buckets………..



    PS: Did asshat borrow this from the wife or the slut????

    Queerty, i’m surprised at you, you start the article with a HUGE bang! The family values guy cheating with a lobbyist, then you go off topic about his tan. Stay on the most horrible topic for this guy!


    @Cam: Anything which shows just what total frauds these asshats truly are is welcome in a thread. If ya think about it, the stories are actually a nice segue . His commitment to “values” is as fake as his tan………… :p

    There is a special place in hell for Boner and Mike Pence. Does anyone else notice how they always seem to be annoyed to be having to do anything, like they can’t believe we’re in a democracy.

    When your name is spelled “Boehner” you’re faced with a choice of pronunciations. He goes with “baner.” BANE, by definition, in Webster: 1. obsolete: killer, slayer b. poison c. death, destruction d. woe 2: a source of harm or ruin: curse.
    Either way, he lived “up” to his name.
