“I think it signals the crazies have taken over the party, taken over to the party that you can remove a speaker of the House who’s second in line to be president, a constitutional officer in the middle of his term with no allegations of impropriety, a person who’s honest and doing his job."Rep.

Brooks: My vote for Boehner was a vote against chaos. (Yellowhammer, 1/6/2015)
