Rep. Louie Gohmert! Announces Plan to Replace John Boehner as House Speaker
The rest of the story is that if enough people run they might split the vote and keep Boehner in, machinations within the GOP machine.
Louie Gohmert, the Texas congressman who is a little too familiar with the sex lives of caribou and thinks gays are unfit for military service because massages from their lovers makes them “vulnurable to terrorism,” announced today his plan to unseat John Boehner as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Fox News reports:
Gohmert, among the House Republican caucus’ most conservative members, made the announcement on “Fox and Friends,” saying he decided to run after Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., said Saturday that he would challenge Boehner for the chamber’s top post.
