Boehner outraises Delay

The NYTimes has a piece on House Majority Leader John Boehner, his golf trips on private jets and his fundraising from lobbyists. He is getting contributions of about $10,000/day, a higher pace than Tom Delay.

I think we know why he allowed lobbying reform to stall.


  • The GOP seems pretty sure the corruption issue isn't going to hurt them because it's business as usual again. Rove's back in the wedge issue business, Boehnner's taking all expenses paid golf trips, Hastert making a bunch of money off some funky real estate deals...it's good to be the king!

  • My guess is they figure that the damage done by corruption is less than the damage done if they abandon he money flow.
