The focus of an upcoming New York Times expose, House Minority Leader John Boehner has been accused of having an affair with Lisbeth Lyons, lobbyist for the American Printing Association. Several sources have reason to believe that the New York Times is looking for the right time to release the story, in hopes that it may sway the upcoming election. Similar circumstances occured in 2008 during John McCain‘s presidential campaign, when the New York Times reported about an alleged affair that may have taken place many years before, and was outright denied by the woman in question.
Activist and blogger, Mike Stark, approached Leader Boehner after his ‘Pledge to America’ to discuss the accusation:
‘Speaker Boehner, have you been cheating with Lisbeth Lyons, the lobbyist for the American Printing Association?’
Receiving no response from Leader Boehner, Stark attempted to contact Lyons, to which he also received no response.
Since then, the New York Post has reached Lyons for comment, saying ‘As you can imagine, I was stunned by such a question. I found it to be highly insulting, particularly as a female political professional, as well as unfounded. Beyond that, I have no further comment on the matter.’
In response to the accusations, A Boehner spokesman had this to say:
‘This is bull-[expletive]. The American people oppose Washington Democrats’ job killing, so their desperate liberal allies are resorting to outright lies. It’s low, and it’s dirty.’
Looks like we wil have to wait and see if the allegations do end up swaying voters during the upcoming elections.
