Boebert Watch: fast and loose with both money and the truth

0

Representative Lauren Boebert presented articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris last week, citing a long list of charges. The fact that the move came a day after news broke that Boebert’s campaign finance disclosures are being investigated again should not suggest anything about the veracity of these accusations. Nothing.

Also, don’t mind the typo in the graphic provided by the folks at Boebert when this announcement was originally made. “Imeach” is a perfectly correct way to spell “Impeach”. That is not an error. It is an “alternative fact”.

There are few facts related to the articles of impeachment she presented, nothing behind them but political malice and a desire to distract the blood-red base of the GOP. It’s not even the first time articles like this have been introduced: braintrust Marjorie Taylor-Greene did it on President Biden’s first day in office, and has done it again since. Boebert’s articles of impeachment – sorry, the “impeachment” articles – will undoubtedly suffer the same fate as Taylor-Greene’s, that is, a well-deserved and despicable rapid fade into the long run. The GOP’s growing list of cynical political movements that are more about appearances than effect.

What may well have an effect are new investigations by the Federal Election Commission into how Boebert once again misappropriated campaign funds for personal use. In February, there were questions about the $ 20,000 mileage reimbursements, which suggested that Boebert had driven nearly 37,000 miles in seven months, an unlikely average of over 175 miles each day during the pandemic, when the travel was limited. Then, in August, it was revealed that Boebert’s husband Jayson had earned an undeclared $ 478,000 the previous year as a consultant for an energy company – while Boebert sat on the House natural resources committee. Then came questions from the Federal Election Commission about four unidentified Venmo payments in the amount of over $ 6,000, which were just revealed to have been for rent and utility bills on behalf of his Shooters. Gun-themed Grill, which showed a loss of nearly a quarter of a million dollars in the pre-pandemic year 2018. These illegal payments came around the same time that Shooters settled a lien Garfield County’s $ 19,000 levied due to non-payment of unemployment premiums.

Could the restaurant that propelled Lauren Boebert’s political career also play a role in her disappearance?

The Venmo payments are a violation of campaign finance law that the folks at Boebert once again attempt to view as a simple mistake – but given the growing number of such errors, the FEC is now investigating whether this latest snafu is yet another example of sloppy bookkeeping. or real evidence of ongoing political excesses.

“It is no coincidence that Lauren Boebert and her husband had plenty of money as soon as she ran for office and was elected to Congress,” said David Pourshushtari, spokesperson for the Colorado Democratic Party. Lauren Boebert plays fast and freely with money and the truth. MP Boebert is only interested in rubbing shoulders with big business and wealthy donors, while lining her pockets.

While guns are undeniably what Lauren Boebert wants to be known for, the misuse of funds is quickly replacing guns as a trademark of Boebert. Granted, the love of gun culture is how it first gained notoriety, ironically with the gun-packed restaurant suddenly becoming problematic for her political career. But this determined personality can only be conceived for so long before a politician’s actions begin to define him more than his rhetoric. As Boebert’s little Wild West show continues, she looks less like Wyatt Earp than Soapy Smith.

How long will it be before Lauren Boebert comes back for the coffee?

These revelations made us wonder what other revelations could await behind the political scenes. What other accounting errors remain to be noted? Our intrepid investigator who had already found hiding places of Boebert’s notes has just come across a bookmark in a dog-eared copy of The art of the transaction left behind in OAN’s green room after an enthralling interview with Boebert, who lists a few campaign fundraising possibilities:

  • $ 10,000 to mom for agreeing to stick to this Democrat welfare thing
  • $ 6,000 to Russian robot companies to continue furiously supporting Facebook bid
  • $ 26,000 to buy all of Mrs. Butterworth’s remaining syrup supply before he “gives in to the libtards” and changes his name and the super awesome bottle design so popular at the restaurant
  • $ 36,000 for the annual salary of the receptionist on duty whose job is to refuse any press request for genuine journalistic coverage
  • $ 122,000 for a professional video editing suite to instead produce fluid and absolutely controlled messages to supporters
  • $ 18,000 for personalized cases for all Shooters staff, covered in leather and featuring the smiley face of the Congresswoman (gift in lieu of Christmas bonuses).
  • $ 500 for documents relating to the copyright of the term “Fauci Ouchie”
  • $ 1,000 to each of her kids for filing mom’s congressional financial disclosures in the first place
