Boehner's office responds to Giffords' husband

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH)

In the new book he co-wrote with his wife Gabrielle Giffords, Mark Kelly says Speaker Boehner only sent Giffords "a simple get-well card" during her recovery after being shot in the head earlier this year.

Boehner's office responded Wednesday via Politico:

“The Speaker and his staff have been in close contact with Rep. Giffords’ staff throughout this difficult ordeal, and the Speaker met with Mr. Kelly in recent weeks about an appropriate memorial for slain staffer Gabe Zimmerman in the Capitol.”

The book "Gabby" was released Tuesday.
