John Boehner's Daughter Is Getting Married to A Jamaican Man Was Arrested For Possesion
This is the Jamaican-born fiancé of House Speaker John Boehner's daughter, pictured just weeks before their upcoming nuptials.
The construction worker was spotted enjoying a McDonalds in Florida recently, with his dreadlocks piled high on his head underneath a knitted cap.
Dominic Lakhan, 38, has been arrested for possessing marijuana in the past. This may not have gone down well with Boehner - who is a staunch opponent to legalizing the drug.
Lindsay Marie Boehner, 35, is set to marry Lakhan on May 10 in Delray Beach, Florida.
In 2006, Lakhan was arrested in Pembroke Pines, Florida for misdemeanor possession of two grams of marijuana during a traffic stop, the National Enquirer first reported. The police report from the incident states that 'upon making contact with the driver,' an officer 'observed in plain view a 16 oz. Natural Lite beer can opened in the driver door.' The officer 'also detected the odor of burnt cannabis emitting from the interior of the vehicle,' the police report continues. 'A search of the vehicle revealed two bags containing approximately two grams of suspected cannabis… inside the center of the ashtray.' The arresting officer reported that Lakhan admitted to possessing the marijuana and said it was for personal use.
Court records show Lakhan, who is originally from Jamaica, was also arrested in 2003 for possession of an open container while driving.
Lindsay Boehner lives in a four-bedroom home in Hollywood, Florida, less than an hour from Lakhan's home in Delray Beach. Boehner has one other daughter, 32-year-old Tricia, who lives in Ohio with her husband, James Kinney.
Boehner has said in the past that he is 'unalterably opposed' to legalizing marijuana, even for medical purposes.
'Whether it is the American Medical Association, the American Cancer Society - all of those people, by and large don’t believe there is any medicinal value in marijuana,' Boehner told CNN in 2009.
His wife looks like that suntan lady. She is gross.
Thanks R1. I just bought them the Martha Stewart tupperware.
I bet that in private he uses some "colorful" words about his future son-in-law.
not the best looking family (what do you expect for politics), but loving the high eyebrow on Tricia at the link.
My guess would be that the marijuana is be the least of John Boehner's concerns.
Holidays must be surreal around that house. The leathery parents drinking nonstop vodka tonics and chain-smoking while the future son in law in 2 feet high dreadlocks sneaks out back for a doobie.
Another politician's daughter sticking it to Daddy.
OMG, look at his wife!!!! She looks like a really bad female impersonator. The fiance looks like a drug dealer. I am surprised they let him in the front door. You just know his daughters are pro choice and pro gay marriage. They both look pretty cool. I also bet he and the Mrs. are heavy drinkers, they definitely have that look!
Yeah, I'm loving this story.
But seriously -- that guy is supposed to be a construction worker? He doesn't look like he could life a two by four!
"lift a two-by-four", duh.
I wonder if he's going to wear that hat for his wedding. Or will he wear a more formal hat?
Ha, Ha, no wonder Boehner cries all the time.
Cant wait until she starts popping out little Boehner babies.
I always thought Boehner must be high, now we know who his supplier is.
I had to check the date on that article and make sure it wasn't April 1.
Complex sentences pose a little problem for you, do they, OP?
At least she's not marrying (gasp!) a WOMAN!
She must be quite fat.
This is sticking it to him even more than had she "come out" a la the Cheney daughter. Laughing my ass off.
I just wish I had thought of it 10 years ago as the ultimate FU to my mother.
Do you thin he'll cry buckets at the wedding?
At least now he can keep getting his tanning bed.
The Dr. Seuss hat must bust his nuts.
You know that whenever Boehner looks at Obama all he sees is his future son in law.
Our American politicians are like modern day American royalty!
