Did John Boehner really pass out tobacco bribe checks on the House floor?

Did Rep. John Boehner, the House Republican Minority Leader who is likely to become the next Speaker of the House actually hand out tobacco company checks as bribes to legislators before a US House vote?

Yes, he did…and he even admits that he did it.

Take a look at this You Tube video in which John Boehner admits handing out checks to bribe lawmakers before a key tobacco vote in the US House.

Of course, everybody knows that the tobacco lobby, like other special interests, bribes congressmen and women with campaign money daily. And being versed in NC politics, I know just how up-front dirty the tobacco lobby can be.

But this is the first time I’ve an actual member of congress admit he encouraged the practice by going out on the floor before the vote and actually handing over checks to influence the lawmakers.

Shocking, but true. John Boehner did do the tobacco companies’ business and bribe Congress with his own hands.
