Watchdog Group: Boehner Received $24,000 from Tyson Whose Tainted Meat Made Four Ohio Kids Sick

Washington, D.C.—Campaign finance watchdog criticized House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) today for taking campaign money from the meat industry and voting against food safety legislation. Earlier this month a family in Speaker Boehner’s district became ill after eating E. Coli contaminated meat. The political action committee of Tyson Foods, the company recalling about 65 tons of their ground meat, and their executives have given Boehner $24,000 in campaign contributions over his career, according to the group’s analysis of data found at opensecrets.org.
