The story has been told before in Alaska political circles, to great effect, but now it’s out there in the big wide world of Politico — Rep. Don Young once pulled a knife on House Speaker John Boehner.
Yes, he did. You had to have been there, however.
In a long-form story that reads like a novella, Politico writer Tim Alberta gave the former House Speaker the mic — and then wrote the biggest political kiss-and-tell of the year. Boehner named names and dropped F bombs. It’s like reading a script from House of Cards, with Francis Underwood peeling back the layers on everything from earmarks to Obamacare.
