Alex Van Halen and House Speaker John Boehner at the U.S. Capitol.

From Daily Mail:

In an effort to round out the public persona of House Speaker John Boehner, his office has released a set of behind-the-scenes photos of the top Republican charming babies, working in his garage and teasing musician Alex Van Halen. 

Coming on the heels of the latest batch of ‘behind-the-scenes’ photos from the White House, which has gone viral online, the images of Boehner portray the Ohio congressman as a prankster, a well-liked boss and baby-pleaser. 

In one photo he’s squeezing the bicep of Alex Van Halen as the musician appears to be laughing hysterically.
