Tea Party Holds ‘Retirement Party’ For John Boehner
The Tea Party really wants to bid adieu to House Speaker John Boehner.
Tea party activists are sending out invitations for a “surprise retirement party” for House Speaker John Boehner, targeting inside-the-beltway Boehner backers and reporters.
The email invites are paid for by the Tea Party Leadership Fund Political Action Committee, a conservative organization that has spent more than $300,000 this cycle supporting 32-year-old J.D. Winteregg’s primary challenge to Boehner this year.
“We’re throwing a retirement party for our John Boehner, and 1,000 of his closest Beltway buddies are invited. I’ve pledged to get him a shuffleboard set so he can enjoy his new Florida retirement in style,” PAC spokesman Rusty Humphries said Friday.
