Boehner on BridgeGate: ‘Not Going Away’

Oh cool. There might be a RINO fight. Any bets on the winner?
Check it out:

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may have the support of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and the Republican establishment, but House Speaker John Boehner isn’t hitching his wagon to Christie, telling Jay Leno last night that he doesn’t see BridgeGate “going away anytime soon.”

Boehner, making his debut on The Tonight Show, took some time to address the various scandals surrounding the governor. “This is not going to go away anytime soon,” he told Leno, not elaborating on which of the scandals he specifically meant. Leno asked Boehner whether what Christie was being accused of could be interpreted as politics as usual, referring to examples of Lyndon Johnson browbeating some union underlings during his tenure. Speaker Boehner did not accept this as an excuse, quipping, “that might happen in New Jersey; it doesn’t happen in Ohio.”
