Boehner's Fundraiser Attended By Illinois Democrat Party Chairman Mike Madigan

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Two weeks ago, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) came to Hinsdale to raise money for Republicans to fight the congressional map drawn under the direction of state Democratic Party chief and Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan.

The very next night, the congressman broke bread with Madigan (D-Chicago) at a fund-raiser for Boehner’s leadership fund at the Lemont home of Chicago Mercantile Exchange Chairman Terry Duffy.

Madigan’s little-known appearance has left partisans in both political camps in a state of disbelief.

It all comes as the wily Illinois House speaker is supposed to be fighting to regain congressional seats lost last year to Republicans who helped Boehner become speaker.
