Ex-GOP rep jests he thought reporter’s accidental text was a drunk text from Boehner

Former Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp joked Friday that he thought he was getting drunk texts from former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) after he mistakenly received a reporter’s crude birthday text meant for someone else.

Huffington Post congressional reporter Matt Fuller accidentally sent Huelskamp, who represented Kansas’ 1st District from 2011 to 2017, a text reading: “happy birthday shithead”.

The text, Fuller explained on Twitter, was meant for his cousin.

{mosads}Huelskamp took the confusion in stride, responding “thought maybe it was Boehner drunk again.”

Fuller posted screenshots of his text and Huelskamp’s response, saying “I won’t text and drive anymore, and Huelskamp’s response was perfect.”
