A political odd couple apparently rubbed elbows up at the same party.

Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan attended a fundraiser for US House Speaker John Boehner two weeks ago.

This happened a day after Boehner went to a Republican event raising money to fight the congressional map drawn under the Democratic chief.

Madigan's spokesperson says he was there as a guest and to cooperate with the US House speaker.

Boehner's campaign is not commenting on Madigan's unexpected appearance.
