(POLITICO) Speaker John Boehner and his wife have bought a condominium in Marco Island, Fla., a tony vacation town in southern Florida.
The Ohio Republican purchased the condo in February 2014 for $835,000, according to public records filed in Florida. He put down $185,000 and took out a mortgage for the rest, according to public records.
“This area of Florida has been the Boehners’ family vacation spot for many years, and rather than continue to put money into vacation rentals year after year, they decided to buy a condo,” said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel. “Their home is in West Chester, Ohio, and will continue to be.”
