“‘There’s no shortage of Reds fans on our staff,” Speaker Boehner’s Deputy Chief of Staff Dave Schnittger told the Enquirer. “Everybody was familiar with Ted’s story . . . It’s a story that showcases the best of a lot of things the Speaker holds dear -- the city of Cincinnati, the Reds organization and more fundamentally, the idea that every individual has the potential to do amazing things.”
