Giffords's husband scolds Boehner for not visiting wounded lawmaker
Giffords's husband scolds Boehner for not visiting wounded lawmaker

In a new book, Rep. Gabrielle Giffordss (D-Ariz.) husband scolds House Speaker John Boehner for failing to visit his wounded wife while she was recovering from injuries sustained in a shooting.

In his and his wifes new volume, Mark Kelly writes that Boehner (R-Ohio) didnt take an opportunity to visit Giffords when he was in Houston for a basketball game and added that all they heard from the Speaker after the shooting came in the form of a simple get-well card.

Kelly noted that in April, Boehner was in Houston for the NCAA Final Four Tournament while Giffords was at a rehabilitation center there following the Jan. 8 attempt on her life.

Considering that she was a member of Congress and he was the highest-ranking member, we thought hed ask to visit Gabby or at least give a call to see how she was doing
, Kelly writes in Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope. Our only contact with him had been a simple get-well card hed sent a few days after Gabby was injured.

But they didnt hear from the Speaker.

do these people think they're dealing with 'human beings'? These RW bastards are the near-ultimate in narcissism and cronyism.
