Boehner Never Visited Giffords

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords's (D-AZ) husband scolded House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) "for failing to visit his wounded wife while she was recovering from injuries sustained in a shooting in his and Giffords' new book," according to The Hill.

Boehner was in Houston for a basketball game while Giffords was in rehabilitation in the same city.

Writes Mark Kelly: "Considering that she was a member of Congress and he was the highest-ranking member, we thought he'd ask to visit Gabby or at least give a call to see how she was doing. Our only contact with him had been a simple get-well card he'd sent a few days after Gabby was injured."
