Now that Boehner has officially retained his position as Speaker of the House will he seek revenge on those that crossed him?

By  JONATHAN STRONG AND CAROLINE MAY –

Minutes after making what he described as a last-minute decision to join right-wing insurgents’ failed effort to block the sitting Speaker of the House from reelection, Rep. Scott Rigell (R-VA) spoke slowly and carefully as he expressed how he thought it might change his political career.

“One thing I respect the speaker for, and, I believe it will be true with me – we’ll find out – he’s not a vindictive man,” Rigell told reporters, adding, “I don’t know.”

Following the second failed coup attempt in two such elections, some of Speaker John Boehner’s allies are pining for revenge, though many Republicans say vengeance just isn’t in his nature. Asked whether the dissidents would face repercussions, Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID), a Boehner confidant, said, “I don’t know, but there should be.”

“The way it’s supposed to work is you run for speaker in our conference. None of these individuals did. They didn’t have the cajones to run in conference. And as I would have told any one of them, if they wanted to run in conference and they got the majority of votes in conference, that’s who I’d have voted for, for speaker, even though I wanted John. And that’s the way you work as a team. These guys haven’t figured that out yet,” Simpson added.

“I opposed him two years ago and it didn’t affect me,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), the first of the conservatives who offered his name up as a challenger three days before the election. “I’ve already talked to him and I just said, ‘Congratulations, I look forward to working with you to make this the best Congress they’ve ever seen’ and that’s my goal.”
