CAPITOL HILL NEWS GOSSIP -- Speaker of the House John Boehner Warned Congressmen to avoid sexy lobbyist parties in the days leading up to his election as speaker. Capitol Hill News heard that John Boehner had to warn a cadre of Republican congressmen about being party pals with or flirting counterparties to lobbyists, due to the election. Why does John Boehner shy away from fun with sexy ladies? Other than the fact he is happily married and a true advocate for family values, there are some of his fellow congressmen he has to worry about.
Here, for example, is one of the things John Boehner considered unhelpful toward his successful quest to become Speaker of the House:
GOP Rep. Lee Terry of Nebraska - who's in a tough race against Democratic opponent Tom White - was witnessed by Page Six in close conversation with a comely lobbyist at the Capitol Hill Club in DC recently.
"Why did you get me so drunk?" Terry asked the giggling woman, among other personal remarks.
When Terry realized he was sitting near a reporter, he quickly changed the topic of conversation to his three children and the struggle to pay their college tuition.
