On Wednesday, seven progressive House candidates marched on Speaker John Boehner’s office with 35,000 petitions saying “We stand with the 99%” — and demanded that Congress pass jobs legislation immediately.
With news cameras from CNN, NBC and CBS recording every move, the candidates were blocked from entering Boehner’s office. It’s clear from the video clip below that Boehner knew the candidates were coming and chose to either leave the office in anticipation of their arrival or hide inside while a staffer did his dirty work.
