Leach: If elected, Meehan will get a ‘reflected-contact-tan’ from John Boehner (Video)
WAYNE—When he introduced congressional hopeful Bryan Lentz during a fundraiser here Tuesday night, state Senator Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery) had some somber words to say about Lentz’s likely Republican opponent—and some more snarky words for House Republican leader John Boehner.
Mocking Republicans who he said claim to be moderates and then shun bipartisanship in Washington, Leach said of former U.S. Attorney Pat Meehan: “So when you hear this guy get up and talk about what a moderate he is, what a great fit for the southeast he is, what a reasonable republican he is—he’s going to go there, and he’s going to sit in John Boehner’s office, and he’s going to get a reflected-contact-tan just from sitting in that office with John Boehner, and then he’s going to vote the way John Boehner wants him to vote on every single important issue, and don’t let them fool you.”
Video of Leach’s remarks—with his commentary on the Minority Leader’s skin complexion beginning about two minutes in—is embedded above.
