Then There Were Two: Massie Joins Meadows, Wants to Fire Boehner

A second Republican has signed on to the effort to fire Speaker John A. Boehner.  

Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky announced Wednesday via Twitter that he’ll co-sponsor the resolution by Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina to vacate the chair.  

Massie’s opposition to Boehner isn’t new. He previously voted against Boehner for speaker.  

Boehner, R-Ohio, earlier dismissed the resolution and the rebels in his conference as a few members “off the reservation” and said the resolution wasn’t worthy of a vote.
