Lobbyists heart Boehner

Dear MoveOn member,

It's true. Right now, Republicans have a good shot at winning Congress. And yesterday, the New York Times published a must-read article about John Boehner, the man who'll be Speaker of the House if they do. The gist: Boehner's passion is representing the scores of corporate lobbyists who are his best friends.

It shocked even us—but then we remembered that Boehner started his career in Congress handing tobacco lobby checks out to other Republicans to keep his "friends" from having to make the trip to the Hill themselves.

Take a look at the article and please share it, so folks know exactly who'll be in charge if the Democrats lose this fall.


Thanks for all you do.
