“…Boehner traveled to New York to personally implore David Koch’s help. A former Koch family adviser said, “Boehner begged David to ‘call the dogs back!’ He pointed out that if the country defaulted, David’s own investments would collapse. A Boehner spokeswoman, Emily Schillinger, confirmed the visit but insisted, “Anyone who knows President Boehner knows he’s not ‘begging.’ But the spectacle of the Speaker of the House, who was among the most powerful elected officials in the country, third in the order of presidential succession, going to the Manhattan office of a billionaire businessman to ask for his help in a congress fratricide combat shows how much the Republican Party’s pivot of power had shifted to outside donors in 2011.”
