It's being alledged by The National Enquirer that John Boehner has a sex scandal brewing with two different women. Activist Mike Stark told the Enquirer, "several sources have come forward with claims he's having an affair with Lyons."

Lisbeth Lyons is a lobbyist & lobbyist starting pay averages around $350,000 - would you sleep with a member of congress for $350,000?

The most Creative comment gets a signed book from Thom, Screwed: The Undeclared War Agsainst the Middle Class.

Thom will inscribe his answer to this question in the book he sends out.

In order to gain millions for her lobbying interests, she is willing to let the orange rub off on her a little.

Because of the lack of proper care in our health care system, and because of the low wages pitted against the escalated cost of living, my body is so weakened by rheumatoid arthritis that I COULDN'T sleep with Bohner or anyone ELSE for $350,000.00 or for any amount or reason. People that could should count their blessings that they still are healthy enough to ponder this question.

If Boehner were asleep/passed out already and there were a bottle of Merlot ready in case he woke up, I'd sleep with him.

Sleeping with Mr. Boehner for any sum of money seems selfish and improper. If, however, we could arrange that all Americans get full health coverage in perpetuity, with no exceptions, I would be willing to offer my services.

I would sleep with him but first I would need to make sure my health care covers allergic reactions. Since I have extreme sensitive skin I would probably break out with intense hives from the orange dye he uses everyday. Ouch.

Sleeping with a Boner,

There is no amount of money that would get me to sleep with a promiscuous person. The risk of disease is way to high. I would rent him a movie and let him take care of himself.

I would sleep with JB, only if it were captured on video. The resulting scandal of him sleeping with a man would, I hope, get him thrown out of office.

Yes I would sleep with the esteemed Mr. Boehner for a fee of $350,000. I would then take that $350,000 in cash and use it to create an ad in the 2012 election and simply say...."Hello. My name is Will Landstrom. I slept with John Boehner in 2011 for a fee of $350,000. I can and will prove it". That's it...and see how his district feels about voting for a paid-for homosexual affair. I am not gay but it would be worth it bringing Boehner down.

I am a heterosexual married man so I wouldn't actually sleep with Boner, but I'd tell him I would. I would treat him just as the republicans treat tax paying Americans, I would take his money and give him the Royal shaft. The shaft would be a drill stem provided by British (hence the Royal) Petroleum (jelly).

John Boehner is the "bainer" of our existence. He's flushing our precious American Vision down the john. I'd only consider sleeping with him if he transformed himself into the beloved Senator Sanders!

I would sleep with John Boehner for $350,000 and then let him know that I was donating the money to the Democratic Party's 2012 campaign.

The good news is that this would be tax free. Basically, one would be damaged, in a legal sense, so much that the $350K would be considered compensation for damages. Although, it would not be close to making one whole again. I would have to set the mood with a nice Belgium White beer. Everyone knows a slice of orange goes great with a Belgium White. Unfortunately, I would never be able to drink a Belgium White again, for obvious reasons. And yes, Johnny, it's okay to cry into your beer. Although, I suspect, if the Boehner's drinking beer, there's probably a shot of whiskey on the bottom. And do you think the "little boehner" is orange too? Just hope Boehner's not one of those teabagger republicans. I think I just lost my appetite.

Beer.

I know Charlie, the reason I refer to them as pimps instead of whores is that we are the ones who get screwed while they take the money. I never want to insult the honest working men and women of America, but their management sucks. OK, the verbs run out.

I am not that fond of the orange with a good Belgium White. I think a shot of fresh grapefruit juice is what makes a great summer combo with a White or with a good Pale. The bitter of the grapefruit goes better with the hops and you don't have the sense of two, not quite compatible ingredients as I feel with almost all fruit in beer or chocolate. Hope that helps with the political conundrum.

I don't think so - it would label me the same as him - a whore - taking money for sexual services - and oh the services he can provide for those lobbyists. Let's instead put an "A" on his chest to go back to the self-righteous early white settlers of this country that insisted this be the punishment for women. I'm sure he, had he lived in that time, would have been on that band wagon!

The key word here is "sleep". Since there is no reference to anything more pruient, I'd be happy to "sleep" with him for $350,000. That's $43,750 for an 8-hour "shift". That's the kind of money that CEOs make. To coin a phrase, "You betcha!"

I would if it put me in the tax bracket where my taxes would be never be increased and I'd get to go on his health care plan (with no penalty for a pre-existing condition like insanity for wanting to sleep with John Boehner). The biggest downside (aside from the ick factor) would have be having to hold him afterwards till he stops crying.

I think the shower to get the orange out would be even more grueling. Even here where Orange is worshipped as God's Holy Color, nobody would want the taint. My coloring is on the pink rather than orange side. It would clash terribly with my complexion and blue eyes.

Yes, I'd sleep with JB. Being a retired preschool teacher it would be a cinch. I'd turn the lights low, pop some soothing kiddie music in the CD player, cuddle up with him, and tell sweet little stories about children and puppies till he cried himself to sleep. Then I'd take the dough and bring it to the people!

Darrel Issa should sleep with John Boehner because they are birds of a feather being "Republican Cry Babies" (see my comedy video here:)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_Ed6SlrUYQ

Oh and read the couple of wingnut comments to the video too. But given that Issa is the richest member of Congress maybe Boehner ought to ask Darrel for $350K.

Louise, I would suggest using the Beatles "Cry Baby Cry" whenever Boehner or Issa come up as topics.
