Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) said Wednesday he feels betrayed by House Speaker John Boehner for failing to take up Hurricane Sandy relief legislation the night before. 

“We were all set to go, and I feel that this was a betrayal, I just half to say it,” Grimm told WNYC’s Brian Lehrer. “I feel it’s a betrayal and an indefensible, an indefensible error in judgment on the Speaker’s behalf.”

Asked whether it makes him question his support for Boehner when he is up for re-election as House Speaker, Grimm said: “Unfortunately, it absolutely does.”
