In June of 2020, Lauren Boebert shockingly won her primary against veteran GOP lawmaker Glenn Tipton. Considering that her district is deep red, she was a shoe in to become a congresswoman.
Boebert might be the least educated member of the House of Representatives. She dropped out of high school and later acquired a GOP. She also has a rap sheet, previously being arrested.
Since she’s been in Washington, the Colorado lawmaker has been a frequent lightning rod for criticism, famously tweeting out the location of Nancy Pelosi during the January 6th insurrection. She doesn’t mind the drama, though. In fact, she feels the need to create it i it doesn’t exist.
During a recent interview on OAN, Boebert was asked about $20,000 in tax liens that were recently paid off on her business. The lawmaker is accused of using campaign funds to pay them. “It was an error,” the lawmaker insisted. “Some money came out of the wrong account and we corrected it, self-reported it right away, talked to the FEC. Everything’s fine. We sent a letter.”

Boebert continued, “And Democrats want to make a story about it. When I don’t see a headline attacking me, I kind of wonder if I’m not doing something right. Like, wait a second, where are the attacks today? I better start something.”
