The good news is the Republicans didn't elect someone tainted by Tribal money, or Defense Contractor Money. The bad news is he is tainted by Tobacco industry money. (He is also an Ohio Repubican, something else to be concerned about)
Mr. Boehner took it upon himself to begin handing out money from tobacco lobbyists to certain of his colleagues on the House floor.
It is sad, but not a suprise, that the republicans could not find a viable canidate without a serious stench of corruption.
