Former Congressman Bob Ney (R-OH) joins David Pakman on “The David Pakman Show” to discuss his new book, “Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hitmen on Capitol Hill.” He has a lot to say about House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), including allegations about John Boehner’s excessive drinking, calling a campaign staffer a ‘fag,’ and handing out free cigarettes from a lobbyist. Ney also describes how the Speaker destroyed Ney’s career after Ney refused to vote for cuts to Head Start (a program for low income preschoolers), and then reneged on a deal they made. Ney represented Ohio’s 18th congressional district from 1995 until November of 2006, when he resigned after admitting guilt in the Jack Abramoff Indian lobbying scandal, and pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and making false statements. Ney spent 17 months in prison, and was released in August.

Nothing surprises me out of the current Republican party. They are the lowest.

Is there any doubt he's a drunk? He was a drinking buddy of Ted Kennedy's.

I bet he's also a drinking buddy of Barney Fag's! Er, I mean Barney Frank's!

His constant tearing up is an obvious sign of his alcoholism.

Boehner wanted to be POTUS but it will never happen now. The world has changed around him in the past decade. All he has left is thwarting Obama at every turn.
Shows you how much he "cares" about America; it's all about him now. Revenge, bitterness.
Go cry in your beer, Gramps.

I did see Ney on some MSNBC show and enjoyed his frank comments. Prison did wonders for the guy.

He'd better not. I'm sure the tears would mix with the spray-on orange tanning as they slid down his face--you wouldn't want to drink that.

A convicted liar with a major grudge against Boehner is not a source that should be relied upon, and any fool can see that Boehner is a drunk. You can practically smell the fumes through the television.

Only a bunch of country club, entitled GOP scumbags could cut a program designed to give low-income pre-schoolers a head start and call themselves the party of Jesus. How American.

Where's the news here?
We all know he's a drunk and everyone knows that to be a Republican these days is to be a homophobic turd - including the self-loathing demented log cainette fucks looking for daddy's approval.
"Fag" is a pretty innocuous word considering the other shit coming from those vile people.

Anybody here even been inside a headstart? my god, those children need every bit of help they can get. There are parts of America where you would not believe the condition these kids live in. In some cases, the 2 meals at headstart are the only food these kids get.

This smug piece of work is a lost cause. No chance of redemption for him.
