Boehner served as an Ohio state representative from 1985 to 1990. In 1990, when U.S. Rep.

There was brief controversy on the first ballot for Majority Leader. The first count showed more votes cast than Republicans present at the Conference meeting.[3] However, this turned out to be due to a misunderstanding as to whether Resident Commissioner Luis Fortuño of Puerto Rico was allowed to vote or not.[4] Luis Fortuño, Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico Luis G. Fortuño (born October 31, 1960) is a corporate lawyer and politician from Puerto Rico affiliated with the New Progressive Party and the United States Republican Party. ...


Boehner campaigned as a reform candidate who could help the House Republicans cleanse and recover from the political damage caused by charges of ethics violations, corruption, and money laundering leveled against prominent conservatives such as DeLay and disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. He bested Majority Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri and Representative John Shadegg of Arizona, even though he was considered an underdog candidate to Blunt.

In politics, a whip is a member of a political party in a legislature whose task is to ensure that members of the party attend and vote as the party leadership desires. ...


Boehner has a strong pro-business reputation, but the social conservatives in the GOP questioned his commitment to their values. According to the Washington Post: "From illegal immigration to sanctions on China to an overhaul of the pension system, Boehner, as chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, took ardently pro-business positions that were contrary to those of many in his party. Religious conservatives — examining his voting record — see him as a policymaker driven by small-government economic concerns, not theirs… [He opposes] a tough illegal immigration bill that passed in December [2005] with overwhelming Republican support over Boehner's opposition. One provision in the bill would mandate that every business verify the legality of every employee through the federal terrorism watch list and a database of Social Security numbers. For the bill's authors, the measure is central to choking off illegal immigrants' employment opportunities. To business groups and Boehner, it is unworkable."[5]


On May 25, 2006, with support for Bush and the GOP Congressional candidates lagging in the polls, Boehner issued a fiery statement defending the Republican agenda and attacking his "Democrat friends" like Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. He said, regarding national security, that voters "have a choice between a Republican Party that understands the stakes and is dedicated to victory, and a Democrat Party (sic) with a non-existent national security policy that sheepishly dismisses the challenges of a post-9/11 world and is all too willing to concede defeat on the battlefield in Iraq."[6] is the 145th day of the year (146th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Controversies

Connections to lobbyists

In June 1995, Boehner provoked contentions of unethical conduct when he distributed campaign contributions from tobacco industry lobbyists on the House floor as House members were weighing how to vote on tobacco subsidies.[7] Boehner stopped handing out the checks only "after being questioned about the practice by two freshmen who’d heard about the handoff on the House floor". Rep. Linda Smith (R-WA) said of Boehner’s actions, "[I]f it is not illegal, it should be."[8]. This pressure from within his own party forced him to apologize for handing out the checks.[9][10] He later led the effort to change House rules and prohibit campaign contributions from being distributed on the House floor.[11] The tobacco industry comprises those persons and companies engaged in the growth, preparation for sale, shipment, advertisement, and distribution of tobacco and tobacco-related products. ... Lobbying is the practice of private advocacy with the goal of influencing a governing body, in order to ensure that an individuals or organizations point of view is represented in the government. ... Linda Smith (born July 26, 1950 in La Junta, Colorado) is a member of the Republican Party who represented Washingtons 3rd congressional district from 1995 to 1999 in the United States House of Representatives. ...


Boehner's PAC has raised $31,500 from four Indian tribes who at one time were associated with lobbyist Jack Abramoff,[12] who is currently the central figure in an unfolding lobbying scandal. Boehner and spokesmen for the Indian tribes say that the contributions were not related to Abramoff's lobbying. Jack Abramoff (born February 28, 1958) is an American political lobbyist, a Republican political activist and businessman who is a central figure in a series of high-profile political scandals. ... 2006 is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Boehner was the chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. In October 2004, Rose DiNapoli, a lobbyist for student loan giant Sallie Mae, held a fundraiser in her Arlington, Va., home for Boehner. At the dinner, 34 Sallie Mae executives — including more than half the senior management team — wrote checks, most for $1,000 apiece, for Boehner's political action committee.[13] In December 2005, Boehner told non-profit lenders that he thought they would be happy with the final results of the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. "Know that I have all of you in my two trusted hands," he said, "I've got enough rabbits up my sleeve to be able to get where we need to." Boehner championed a bill making steep cuts to for-profit lender subsidies in an effort to save more than $13 billion in the Deficit Reduction Act, though the final package "soften[ed] [proposed] cuts to lenders" and "deal[t] a serious blow to the competing direct-loan program."[14] The direct-loan program gives students access to loans from taxpayers, instead of through private lenders and banks. Supporters of Direct Loans suggest "direct-lending program costs taxpayers much less than extending loans through lenders like Sallie Mae.[15] But the Direct Loan "program has not provided savings and is paying out more in interest payments — calculated at about $16.5 billion — than it has received from borrowers since its inception."[16] SLM Corporation (NYSE: SLM), commonly known as Sallie Mae, (formerly named the Student Loan Marketing Association) is the largest provider of educational loans in the United States. ... The Higher Education Act may refer to an Act of either the Congress of the United States or of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. ...


Boehner rents a two-bedroom Capitol Hill apartment for $1600 a month. The apartment building is owned by a Washington lobbyist; the Washington Post evaluated his rent to be about the market rate.[17] Boehner does not deny his close ties to "K Street" lobbyists and says that his relationships are ethical, but that the ties were only for a short period of approximately 2 weeks. Lobbying in the United States targets the United States Senate, the United States House of Representatives, and state legislatures. ...


Lawsuit against Congressman McDermott

Boehner has been involved in a lawsuit, first filed in 1998, against fellow Congressman Jim McDermott of Washington — the first such case ever between two sitting Congressmen. Boehner v. McDermott centered on the release by McDermott to the media of and taped conference call between Boehner, Newt Gingrich, and other Republican Congressional leaders that had been illegally recorded through a radio scanner and given to McDermott by a Florida couple.[18] The call was a discussion of strategy over an investigation of Gingrich by the House Ethics Committee.[19] Gingrich had publicly pledged not to organize opposition to the probe. The Florida couple were later fined $500 for violating the federal wiretapping law. McDermott was ordered to pay $60,000 to Boehner in addition to attorney fees and costs, which may amount to $500,000 based on his violation of House Ethics rules.[20] James Adelbert Jim McDermott (born December 28, 1936 in Chicago, Illinois) is the current U.S. Representative for Washingtons 7th congressional district. ...
