House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) “walked away from a question about embattled Rep. Rick Renzi (R-AZ) at the end of a press conference today.” A reporter “stopped Boehner on his way out of the room and asked whether Renzi, who has not gotten much public support from GOP leaders as he faces a corruption scandal, should retire or resign. Though he seemed to have heard the question clearly — he was only about a foot away — Boehner turned and walked out, rather than answer. It seems to be part of a new strategy — Boehner’s spokesman didn’t return phone calls Tuesday about Renzi, either.”
