John Boehner Resigning As Speaker And Member Of Congress
There won't be many people shedding tears over this announcement. House Speaker John Boehner announced he will step down as Speaker and resign his seat in Congress effective October 30. Conservative members have been threatening to act on an effort to oust the Speaker because of his repeated capitulation to President Barack Obama. Boehner has never been trusted by conservatives and has long been suspected of being corrupted by Washington lobbyists.
