Rep. Peter King, New York Republican, said Friday that House Speaker John A. Boehner’s resignation signals that “crazies” have taken over the GOP.

“I think it signals that crazies have taken over the party,” Mr. King told CNN. “Taken over the party that you can remove a Speaker of the House who’s second in line to be president, a constitutional officer, in the middle of his term with no allegations of impropriety, a person who’s honest and doing his job.

“This has never happened before in our country,” Mr. King said. “He could have stayed on — I would say, a solid three-quarters, 80 percent, 85 percent of the Republican Party supports John Boehner.”
