Rep. Boehner claims Arctic National Wildlife Refuge contains no wildlife
Defenders of Wildlife recommends an eye exam
WASHINGTON – At a news conference today, Congressman John Boehner of Ohio made it clear that his fact-finding trip to Alaska is in fact a publicity stunt aimed at undermining supporters of the pristine Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. “We’re going to look at this barren, Arctic desert where I'm hoping to see some wildlife,” Boehner told reporters. “But I understand there’s none there. But I’m still going to look for it. If I find any, I’ll let you know,” said Rep. Boehner.
