Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) claimed she “didn’t know” the anti-government extremists she posed with on the steps of the Colorado Capitol in 2019, but it turns out she’s known some of them for over a year.

Last week, a photo of Boebert posing with Bikers For Trump and “Three Percenter” militia extremists at a Dec. 2019 gun rights rally in Denver, first reported by the Colorado Times Recorder, went viral due to misinformation stating it was taken in Washington prior to the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) said that one of his colleagues saw Boebert giving a tour to a large group prior to the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Boebert denied the accusation, responding with a fiery letter, in which she also insisted she didn’t know the people in the photograph she herself posted.

“Extremists that believe your rhetoric have posted photos of me with people I don’t know at the Capitol Building in Denver, Colorado, following a rally from more than a year ago and claimed these were people that I gave a U.S. Capitol tour to on January 5, 2021,” wrote Boebert in the letter.

While it’s true the photo was misidentified, it’s also true that Boebert indeed knows the people with whom she posed back in December 2019.

Yesterday she accepted a custom Glock 22 from Cory Anderson of the group Colorado Boots on the Ground: Bikers For Trump (BFT). Video of the presentation of the Glock is available here.

Anderson, his wife Jacqueline, and several other BFT members, along with the extremist militia American Patriots Three Percent, stood with Boebert at the state Capitol fourteen months ago. In both photos, multiple members, including Cory Anderson sport “Three Percenter” patches.

Cory Anderson of Grand Junction is a leader of Bikers for Trump Colorado and also an avowed Three Percenter.

In addition to wearing a III%er patch, he’s waved a III%er flag at the state capitol. Cory and his wife Jacqueline appear in the Dec. 8, 2019, photo with Boebert; they’re standing immediately above her in the image, Cory in the back row with Jacqueline in front of him.

Jacqueline Anderson has posted numerous photos of herself and Boebert to her own Facebook page. And it appears the two have known each other since at least September of 2019.

Anderson shared an image of herself with Boebert and the Congresswoman’s longtime friend Sherronna Bishop, laughing together at Shooter’s Grill, the restaurant owned by Boebert and her husband. Boebert “loved” the image.

The following month the trio attended an Oct. 24 meeting on school choice organized by conservative advocacy group Ready Colorado.

Jacqueline Anderson, who is a 2021 member of the conservative political training program Leadership Program of Rockies, also shared multiple photos of her and Cory with Boebert and her husband Jayson at an event on Dec. 14, 2019, just one week after the rally at the Capitol in Denver.

“When one of your most favorite people says, ‘We’re in town, come out,’ you figure out how to rally last minute and join them,” wrote Anderson on Facebook. “I love you so much Lauren Boebert.” Boebert’s campaign regularly featured a professional photo of her with BFT members, including Cory Anderson, on her campaign website and in direct mail pieces.

Boebert’s office did not immediately return an email request for comment.

Attempts to reach Cory and Jacqueline Anderson by phone and Facebook messenger were unsuccessful. This article will be updated with any response received.

    Hmmmmm – there was some other officeholder, served from 2017-2021 and did not smell good, who always claimed he didn't know people then "evidence" proved otherwise.

    She might get a pass on this one.  It is possible that she doesn’t even know her zip code or when she passed her GED.  On the other hand, she might be a quick study in grifting.  Grifters are gonna grift.

    • Mr. L. Prosser says:

      Yeah. Saw this on a Balloon Juice thread about Boebert this morning, "I think Boebert is the future Sarah wanted for Bristol."

        It seems pretty obvious that Mama Grizz had a taste for government cheese as well as does our very own Calamity Jane.

         Pretty soon the corporate cheese will really start to flow…prolly already has…and the Boebert clan will be walking in tall cotton.

    It will be interesting to see if Jeffrey Patrick Sabol, 51, of Indian Hills, CO, employee of Kemron Environmental Services, is identified as one of these militia members posing with Boebert.

    Sabol was the scumbag who was videotaped  dragging a Capitol officer down the steps to be beaten  by Trump’s mob. Sabol is currently in jail in New York, held without bail since he attempted to flee to Switzerland. 

    A mugshot has not yet been released.

    Boebert seems to be attracting attention …

    I'm going to challenge Lauren Boebert (if she makes it to 2022) for the Colorado 3rd District. I Graduated with honors with a degree in Paralegal Studies, Graduated Fort Lewis College, 2008 Political Science / with pre-law minor. Interned for US Rep John Salazar.

      Quite a few Dems are eyeing that seat. My pick for electability would be Leroy Garcia. He’s gun-friendly enough to appeal to that demographic, he’s male, Latino, handsome, a veteran, and young, and his family has deep roots in the area.

      • Duke Cox says:

        Sadly, the gun-friendly part is very important. This area is not just gun- friendly…it is gun nuts. It has been that way for as long as anyone can remember.

        In 1976, I managed the local campaign for a CD3 candidate. While touring a petroleum facility, he spoke to a group of 25 to 30 men. After he spoke, he took questions. They had only one…How do you feel about gun control? He gave them the wrong answer. They disengaged and drifted away. 

        The candidate was crushed in Mesa county…he was a college professor who believed in gun control.

        Sound familiar?

        The Gunnie crowd around here is passionate, to say the least. 

        • kwtree says:

          I was pissed at Garcia (who was my rep back then) for voting yes on background checks, but no on magazine size limits and other gun bills. He also waffled on the red flag bill, and finally voted against it.

          They still wanted to recall him, but then, they are idiots.Or it was never about guns, but only about political power.

          Angela Giron had been recalled based on that one issue, and I felt that Garcia had betrayed her. Pueblo is a big hunting town, so I get it. Anywho, it probably would make him electable in CD3.
