Speaker John Boehner joins other Republican stars in Florida

Yet another GOP stalwart has purchased a home in the Sunshine State.

According to USA Today, House Speaker John Boehner and his wife have bought a luxury condominium in the exclusive enclave of Marco Island.

The $835,000 condo is located in a tony 14-story tower known as The Tampico, which furnishes its well-appointed three bedroom/three-bathroom units with a host of amenities, according to real estate records and a local real estate agent's description of the waterfront residence.
