The Federal Election Commission is examining whether dozens of political action committees and individuals contributed more than the legally allowed amount to House Speaker John Boehner during last year's election cycle.

Letters the Federal Election Committee sent Monday to Friends of John Boehner indicated that donors including coal, energy, and gambling interests, exceeded contribution limits to Boehner's committee by more than $150,000.

The intellect and stability of those donating to the drunken bonehead idiot should be questioned....along with the donations.

Boehner is almost as slimy as the Obamadork...but in his defense, he probably did graduate from college on his own merits...and oh yeah, he also has a real birth certificate.

John Boehner is so weak he makes the other weak Republicans look good by comparison. In that sense, he’s useful to them. /sarc

“Although the commission may take further legal action concerning the acceptance of excessive contributions, your prompt action to refund the excessive amount will be taken into consideration,” the letters say

So what is being investigated? Sounds like the fec wants to make some headlines against boenher.

Why would anyone contribute to Boehner? He has folded and with this he will be trying to out McCain, McCain.

Sounds like Obama’s government got pissed off he did not deliver the repubbie vote for Syria, and it's ... PAYBACK TIME!

(Equally to the point: Did you notice that the millions sent from overseas in “unlisted” and “anonymous” 495.00 credit card money from unknown people to Obama is ignored by Obama’s FEC and Obama’s national media?

Did you notice the “evil” and dirty and immoral business and coal and oil and energy donors!!!! oh my!!!!! /handwringing by sociopaths

Well John, Obamster warned you he would do this, now he wants you to get your act together and aggressively support him, or he will start to release all the other stuff NSA has provided him with.

I don’t think crying will help you, why don’t just resign now.

“Federal Election Committee sent Monday to Friends of John Boehner indicated” Friends of Boehner... that should be a very small list except for A A.
