Is John Boehner A Drunk?

So I Google “John Boehner” and the first text suggestion from Google is “John Boehner affair.”

No, I’m interested in “John Boehner drunk.”

Mickey Kaus tweets: “Wish Brian WIlliams would just come out and ask Boehner if he’s a lush. The beating around the bush is tedious.”


According to Joe Scarborough, House minority leader John Boehner is a lazy bar fly, and maybe worse. On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” Scarborough went off on Boehner, a fellow Republican, leaving many viewers wondering if the Republican congressman suffers from alcoholism.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Scarborough said:

“I hear it on the Hill, I’m sure you hear it on the Hill all the time, it’s not reported. But so many Republicans tell me that this is a guy that is not the hardest worker in the world.”

“After five o’clock, six o’clock at night he’s disengaged — at best,” Scarborough continued. “You can see him around town. He does not have, let’s say, the work hours of Newt Gingrich. … Every Republican I talk to says that John Boehner, by five or six at night, you can see him at bars.”
