Boehner's Friends?

* Do you want to join a group that protects the rich, the corporate titans, and the top 1% of the top income bracket?  Have I got a special interest group for you!!!!!

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday launched Team Boehner, a new website designed to be a central location for his social media efforts focusing on the upcoming 2012 elections.

Boehner called the new effort “an innovative & grassroots oriented website [to] empower the people, not the [government]” at the new Twitter feed created for the website. “Our site will connect @JohnBoehner [with] the millions of Americans who understand that the bigger our [government] gets, the smaller its people become,” reads a subsequent tweet....

“Team Boehner members get the inside scoop on our efforts to secure freedom for the American people, and fight for a smaller, less costly and more accountable government,” Boehner said in a video welcoming people to the site....

"Team Boehner" sounds like a club for the rich elite, complete with special handshake, club t-shirts, and private wine tastings.  Needless to say, the 99% won't be invited.

*** This just in....  ClevelandJewishNews:

Former Republican congressional candidate Richard Iott, who participated in reenactments of Nazi battles, dressing up in SS uniforms, donated $2,400 to House Speaker John Boehner's political action committee, according to Federal Election Commission filings. The National Jewish Democratic Council called on Boehner to return Iott's money. Last week, it was reported that Iott gave $1,000 to Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel's Senate campaign.
