New Speaker of the House, John Boehner, not only smokes and cries, he also has sex.Â And he does it with two women other than his wife.Â Â At least that’s the rumor that’s spreading like wildfire among Washington insiders and political bloggers who claim that a soon to be released New York Times probe into the politician’s private life will reveal at least twoÂ extra-marital affairs.Â Â Â
According to the National Enquirer, Boehner, 61, had a romantic liason with a Washington lobbyist named Lisbeth Lyons.Â He also allegedly had an affair with Leigh LaMora, the former press secretary to ex-Colorado Congressman Joel Hefley.Â
Although the sixty one year old Boehner, who is the father of two children, has been married for 37 years, he and his wife spend very little time together.Â
“Deborah normally stays back in Ohio while John spends most of his time in D.C.,” explained an insider. “It is not uncommon for Boehner to attend parties and events without his wife.”
Apparently John and Deborah Boehner have had a long distance marriage for some time.Â According to inside sources, Boehner first hooked up with Leigh LaMora back in 1997 at a casino party thrown by a Washington lobbyist.Â
So far there’s been no word from Boehner or his reps regarding the cheating allegations.Â Nor has there been any comment from Deborah Boehner.Â When contacted about the allegations, she “stood by her man” and refused to reply.
John Boehner is second in line to the presidency.
