Skip to comments.Retirement Watch: Boehner Buys FL Condo
Posted on 02/19/2014 4:44:56 PM PST by cotton1706
It'll be a bit easier for Speaker John Boehner to get that famous tan now that he has a place in Florida.
The Ohio Republican just bought a condo in tony Marco Island, FL, known for its tropical climate and white sand beaches.
"This area of Florida has been the Boehners' family vacation spot for many years, and rather than continue to put money into vacation rentals year after year, they decided to buy a condo. Their home is in West Chester, Ohio, and will continue to be, Michael Steel, Boehner's spokesman said.
The new purchase is likely to prompt a new round of speculation about whether Boehner will retire at the end of this Congress, although he has been adamant both publicly and privately that he intends on staying on for another term.
Boehner shared the happy news he had just closed on a place to colleagues at the National Republican Congressional Committee's recent winter meeting in Sarasota, prompting gossip among GOP lawmakers about what it might mean for his future.
Buying a new place is a more significant act for the relatively modest Boehner than other top congressional leaders. Sen. John McCain, for instance, famously couldn't remember how many houses he owned. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi owns a place in Napa Valley, California on a road called Zinfandel Lane.
Until now, he and his wife Deborah have owned only a house in West Chester, Ohio. Boehner rents an apartment in the basement of a Capitol Hill rowhouse to stay at while he's in town for congressional business.
To the extent it shows Boehner putting his focus on recreation, the purchase could feed speculation that Boehner will be stepping down at the end of this Congress.

He’s been in Congress 24 yrs IIRC.
A lot of Buckeyes go to Florida to retire because of favorable taxes.
I remember mega lib Sen Metzenbaum did that right before croaking to avoid Ohio death taxes.
Now the sun and cigarettes will get him the big nitwit.
Doesn’t he have a son-in-law that’s from Jamaica or some other island area? Surprised he didn’t go there.
Should we offer to help Ms. Boehner pack?
A three-box Kleenex event, fer sure...
Can someone generate a revised “My Job is Done Here” graphic?
So now he can work on a real tan instead of his orange spray paint?
And hang out with that other well known Conservative leader Charlie Crist. Bwahaha
Hope he retires soon. And for the record, John McCain doesn’t own any houses. He needs to ask Cindy for permission to go in them.
Marco Island’s first name is NOT ANTHONY.
“Tony” Marco Island???? Maybe 35years ago.
He can bring his “tan” with him...
Marco Island, FL
Everyone remember that address, ok?
Pray Boner retires ASAP! He’s useless
Before you decide to sling insults perhaps you should check your aim there Buttercup.
I have no Idea what you are refering to. I said nothing about Marco Island or Anthony. What ever that means.
