Ron Meyer Jr., spokesperson for the activist group American Majority Action, Appeared on MSNBC with Martin Bashir where he said that he is hearing rumors form reliable sources that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will resign the speakership tonight.


"We need a new Speaker," Meyer said. "There are serious rumors that at the conference tonight, at 5 o'clock, John Boehner will announce to the conference that he is resigning as Speaker of the House."


Bashir said he found that hard to believe, to which Meyer replied that he also found it unlikely. Bashir pressed and asked if there was any evidence to back this up or a candidate who is seeking to replace Boehner as speaker. Meyer replied that he thought Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) was spearheading this "coup," but had no evidence to back that up.
