As Georg might joke, “You vill obey, you vill valk in lock step, or you vill be gone.” This is crazy. And they’re even admitting what they’re doing:
The Hill reports that, according to Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Boehner used his weekly GOP conference meeting to “note that we [leadership] have punished four members, he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."
Huelskamp also said Boehner threatened “there may be more folks that will be targeted” and that Boehner told the caucus that “‘we're watching all your votes.’”
Somehow, that faux German accent just seemed appropriate with this story…
