Lisbeth Lyons Having Affair With John Boehner? Stark Investigates
Mike Stark From Stark Reports Has Been Investigating Whether Minority Leader John Boehner Has Been Having An Affair With Lisbeth Lyons
In this article, Stark says he began hearing whisperings of an alleged affair between the two last month and decided to look into the matter further. Lisbeth Lyons is the Vice President for Government Affairs for the American Printers Association, although Gawker says she is the VP of Government Affairs for the Printing Industries of America.
John Boehner has been vocal in the past over Mark Souder's affair with one of his staff and for telling members of his caucus to stop "using the 'party house' to entertain young Republican female lobbyists".
Stark was able to pose the question to Boehner on September 22 and videotaped his response. In the video, Boehner does not say anything when asked about Lisbeth Lyons.
So far as I’m concerned, if someone asked me if I was cheating on my wife, it would be very easy for me to simply say, “Absolutely not. No truth to that whatsoever.” John Boehner couldn’t bring himself to mouth those words.
Stark then calls Lisbeth Lyons and tapes that response as well, and he is not satisfied with her answer either. She just says she has no comment.
The bottom line is this: At an event John Boehner offered numerous pledges to America, he wouldn’t comment on whether or not he was keeping a fundamental pledge he made to his wife. John Boehner forced Mark Souder to resign for adultery. Shouldn’t he at least have to say what the truth is?
According to the New York Post, there is an upcoming New York Times exposé that will look at an alleged Boehner affair, but it is not known when that story will go to print.
A rep for Boehner's office said, "This is bull[bleep]. The American people oppose Washington Democrats' job killing, so their desperate liberal allies are resorting to outright lies. It's low, and it's dirty."
Lisbeth Lyons told the Post that she was shocked by the allegations and found it to be highly insulting, but did not want to comment further.
