>>> what do you do when you get out of jail? i guess you could write a book. a former republican congressman and convicted felon is trying to disgrace the speaker of the house , john boehner . bob nay out of ohio spent a decade as a congressman from that state and he's known boehner for 25 years. in 2006 they pleaded guilty to charges from the jack abram lobbying scandal. he accepted gifts in exchange for votes and served 17 months in prison. now he's going after his old buddy john boehner in a new book. nay accuses boehner of allegedly having an extramarital affair, heavy drinking, taking thousands of dollars in gifts from lobbyists and just being lazy. i spoke today on my radio show today. he thinks boehner 's past has a lot to do with the gridlock in washington.
>> as we talk about sequestering and fiscal cliffs, the advocacy money and the lobby money is flowing all thoefr place to make decisions. and at the helm is a person, the speaker of the house , that was involved in all of these things with abramoff. and i think people have a right to know what the third in line to the presidency is about.
>> he also told me that boehner is concerned about one thing, himself.
>> at no point in time have i ever heard in 25 years john boehner say, bob, that's just not good for people or, that is good for people. this is his personality. it is about his survival as speaker. so if he has to obstruct, he will obstruct. if he has to cater to all the special interests , he will cater.
>> now clearly boehner isn't real happy with his former colleague. i don't know if they are friends anymore. he addressed the accusations on thursday in a presser.
>> this is a disgraced congressman who went to jail. he's made a lot of baseless and false accusations in order to try to sell a book. it's sad.
>> what's wrong with no comment? why even address it if it's all wrong. nay responded to boehner on my radio show earlier today.
>> as far as sad, i think john probably cried when he heard some of the things i said because he knows they are true. there will be people that are republicans. there will be people that, you know, are not deemed liars. that will be, i believe, coming out to verify what i've said.
>> wow. that will be a story. only time will tell if these accusations prove to be true. but we should note boehner 's handed out checks from the tobacco industry on the house floor.
>>> tonight in our survey, i asked you, will republicans ever admit the obama economy is working? 2% of you say yes. 98% of you say no.
