Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was transferred to a physical rehabilitation facility today, and greetings from people along the ambulance route reportedly caused the wounded member of congress to “tear up”. Giffords was wounded by a crazed gunman two weeks ago in Tucson, Arizona.
Sources report the House Speaker John Boehner (pronounced “boner”) also cried as Giffords was transported, although they say he was in Washington, D.C. at the time. Boehner received a letter from Publishers’ Clearinghouse that informed him he may have already won $1,000,000.00. “He just went to pieces” and unnamed source said.
