(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., is finding herself at the center of a political firestorm on social media, but is drawing support from conservatives who see the alleged controversy as a glaring example of double standards within the Democratic Party.
The uproar started following leaked video footage revealing Boebert in a compromised situation with her alleged new boyfriend. Critics from the left seized upon this opportunity to question Boebert’s principles, but conservative voices are rallying behind her.
Boebert faced initial scrutiny when she was asked to leave a musical play in Colorado, and she initially denied vaping during the event despite video evidence to the contrary. The footage prompted the lawmaker to issue an apology.
“It’s true, I did thoroughly enjoy the AMAZING Beetlejuice at the Buell Theatre and I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!” Boebert said in a lengthy statement. “I genuinely did not recall vaping that evening when I discussed the night’s events with my campaign manager.”
In the statement, Boebert highlighted that she is going through a divorce and called her actions inappropriate.
However, leftist critics seized on the opportunity to instigate personal attacks against the firebrand lawmaker. Notably, as she navigates a tough re-election campaign in 2024, Boebert’s race has been classified as a “toss-up” by the Cook Political Report due to her Democratic challenger’s substantial fundraising advantage.
He added, “They fight for the people and face relentless attacks from the media and the Left because they are effective.”
Political commentator Joey Mannarino echoed Gaetz’s remarks, highlighting Boebert’s congressional accomplishments, stating, “She has done more for America First in Congress in two terms than many who have been there for decades.”
Mannarino also pointed out the glaring hypocrisy within the political left, accusing them of molesting children and “worshipping Satan.”
The left’s criticism of Boebert came after they championed Susanna Gibson, a Democratic candidate who allegedly engaged in intimate relations with her husband on a live stream to fundraise using an adult website.
