“The allegation, which appears to have been repeated by at least two different internet blogs, is that House Speaker John Boehner has hampered the congressional Fast and Furious probe, and that some kind of deal has been cut to derail or at least slow down the investigation,” Workman wrote, citing an initial blog by Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars that has since taken on a life of its own as others have repeated it, sometimes adding unsourced details.
