    Wedge issue: John Boehner PAC splurges on golf
    By JAKE SHERMAN | 11/24/09 2:52 PM EDT

    By all public estimations, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) is a pretty good golfer.


    He should be, given the $82,998 his political action committee has spent on golf outings so far this year, according to Federal Election Commission filings.


    The golf events this year sponsored by Boehner’s Freedom Project political action committee have stretched from April until October, from Florida to Ohio. And the minority leader doesn’t hold his events at worn-out municipal courses. The most recent outing was a $20,921.34 event at the plush Robert Trent Jones track in Gainesville, Va., an invitation-only private club that was once also home to the Professional Golfers Association's President’s Cup

    And this was in 2009 when it all fell apart...

    And yet he became House majority leader...

    At least he didn't splurge on ping-pong, water polo, badmitton, and fencing.....the 4 most boring-est Olympic events ever contrived!
    I rate it 'semi-cool', but, that's just me........semi-:cool:.
