Boebert Campaign Emails Landing in Spam Folders Due to ‘Nefarious’ Conspiracy, Says Boebert Spokeswoman

Boebert for Congress commsperson Laura Carno.

Congressional candidate Lauren Boebert’s spokeswoman thinks “something nefarious” is causing Boebert campaign emails to be directed to the spam folders of people who have Gmail accounts.

Laura Carno, Boebert’s communications director, told a conservative radio show Tuesday that she’s heard from “dozens and dozens and dozens of people saying, ‘Hey, just so you know, I think my spam filter is moving all of Lauren’s messages to spam.'”

Carno, who uses Gmail “for the time being,” thinks this isn’t a function of normal spam email filtering but a targeted attack on conservatives, like Boebert.

“As I’ve looked at my own spam box and my email service, it’s the same thing,” Carno told KCOL’s Jimmy Lakey. “It’s all of the conservative stuff.”

Carno acknowledged on air that she doesn’t subscribe to many liberal email lists so she has a “slanted inbox to start with.”

Still, she’s convinced there’s a stealth tech attack targeting conservatives like her.

“Even when I go through and say this is not spam on GOP emails or campaign emails that I want to see, the next one that comes out goes straight to my spam,” she explained to Lakey, who told her his emails from the Colorado Republican Party also go to spam.

“So I think there’s something nefarious afoot,” Carno concludes.

“A little nefarious behavior there, from Silicon Valley,” replies Lakey, then adds facetiously, “I’d be shocked if that happens.”

Google didn’t respond to an email asking if its spam filters are set to grab conservative emails. Or if the company has heard the complaint from other conservatives–or from progressives.


Carno’s embrace of a spam-filter conspiracy comes as Boebert continues to try to downplay favorable comments she made about QAnon, an outlandish conspiracy theory alleging that government workers, pedophiles, and others are plotting against Trump.

Boebert has said she’s not a follower of QAnon, but she did delete her YouTube account where she followed numerous QAnon-related channels. And she continues to embrace conspiracies about government “deep-state” workers who are out to get the president.

Carno didn’t return multiple requests for comment. 

Carno, who’s the author of Government Ruins Nearly Everything, and Lakey are not alone in worrying about conspiratorial shennanigans from Silicon Valley.

On Wednesday, the Trump campaign sent a fundraising appeal to supporters alleging that the left is “CENSORING our President for telling the TRUTH.”

Trump’s email pointed to Twitter’s decision to put a warning sign on a tweet from Trump in which he equated the COVID to the seasonal flu.

“Silicon Valley Elites and the Fake News media are trying to SILENCE President Trump weeks before the Election, during a critical moment in this war against the coronavirus,” the email falsely stated.

Twitter tagged Trump’s email with, “This Tweet violated Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”

    It's pretty simple, if the crazy would follow good email practices they wouldn't have their emails marked as SPAM.  I signed up for the Yam's emails to see what they were spewing.  After up to ten emails a day I unsubscribed but that didn't stop the onslaught.  They still come fast and furious, right into my SPAM folder, six already today. Pro tip, Gmail sees that an account continues to send unsubscribed email and then downgrades their ratings resulting in marked as SPAM even for those that like to get their crap.  Luckily most of the high tech folks who understand this have a brain and wouldn't work for the Yam's campaign.

    I'm an equal opportunity masochist, Bidens campaign stopped sending the minute I unsubscribed.

    It's not brain surgery if you follow the very simple rules.

      Maybe the GMAIL platform is smart enough to figure out that anything coming from the Qbert campaign is for all intents and purposes spam. That also goes for much of what passes for mainstream conservative communications.

      Thank you for this explanation. That makes perfect sense.

      Next, Google should degrade/suspend accounts that force you to type in your email in order to unsubscribe. They obviously know the email they sent the message to!

    True. It has to do with this Soros grant. We all got one. Antifa, you know?
