    The machinery of justice is very slow.

    3rd option – gets Covid and dies.

    “I under-reported a lot of stuff” 

    Lauren Boebert admits to campaign finance problems: “I under-reported a lot of stuff” to the FEC

    FEC records reviewed by Salon suggest that Boebert’s campaign spent $2.6 million in the 2020 cycle yet only made a total of 147 payments to a total of 32 recipients. Moreover, 40 of those payments made went to the ride-sharing platform Uber in December 2020, around the very same time Boebert attended a “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington. In the maze of FEC filings, seemingly obvious expenses the campaign incurred were not included in those disbursements.

      This fool hasn’t learned one goddamn thing about being in Congress . . .

      . . . “Stuff was underreported.” . . .

      FIFY, Qpé !

      (. . . fucking Moderatus must be writing her “stuff”???)

    • RepealAndReplace says:

      Maybe someone needs to look more closely at her mentor’s financial disclosures. Perhaps there may be some payments to MTG’s tantric guru/lover chalked up as campaign expenses?

  3. Sparky says:

    We can dream, but let's be honest: There is no accountability coming for her. If she hasn't been held accountable for her many crimes thus far including those she committed even before being in office, she's not going to be held responsible.

    I mean, this is the country that lets Trump and his regime walk free despite limitless corruption and obvious crimes committed in public including attempting to steal/rig elections and overthrow the government. America can't even keep Bill Cosby in prison for God's sakes. Sadly we just don't do accountability, our institutions are not capable of it, it's not in our national DNA.

    • Genghis says:

      Yeah, that's probably correct. The notion that Sloebert will face anything resembling real accountability is a clown-punching fantasy right up there with "Mueller's investigation will bring the Trump administration down," "the CIA is working behind the scenes to destroy the Trump administration" and "now that Trump is out of office, the criminal indictments will fall like rain."

      • Conserv. Head Banger says:

        Sparky is basically correct. Some political junkies may get concerned about Boebert's fiscal improprieties.

        Average voters in the 3rd district likely don't follow this stuff. For too many voters in the 3rd, all is right and good as long as she continues to love Trump and continues to "own the libs."

    • RepealAndReplace says:

      But sometimes the Party of Trump demands accountability.

      Sen. Marsha Blackburn has called for the resignations and/or removal of everyone in the line of presidential succession except Nancy Pelosi, Pat Leahy and Janet Yellen as a result of the events in Afghanistan over the past week.

    I've only seen photos of Mr. Boebert sitting in the P/U truck. He is a big boy … height-wise at least.

    • Colorado Pols says:

      Seems to be, though Lauren is unusually small and that distorts the comparison in photos. 

    • JohnInDenver says:

      there were pictures of the whole family walking on a Colorado field on her web page.  Probably they are still there.   https://laurenforcolorado.com/about/

      Right next to the claim she is "active in her church and has spent years counseling at-risk women at the local jail, encouraging them to become self-sufficient and productive members of society who do not depend on government assistance."

       

      • kwtree says:

        She lied about the volunteer counseling, too. She volunteered nine times over a period of two and a half years. And she lied about her prior criminal history in order to be cleared to volunteer at the jail.

        I could post every day about "Something stupid or outrageous Lauren Boebert said / tweeted / posted today." Her latest schtick is accusing Biden of being in league with the Taliban and basically responsible for the carnage from the terrorist attack at the airport.

        But here is how Representative Jason Crow responded when Boebert complained about delays in transporting Afghani refugees. It's classic. And, of course, Boebert blocked Crow, a congressional colleague.

        • Conserv. Head Banger says:

          When I was in College Young Republicans (late 1960s), some of my colleagues put together a document on then Senator Birch Bayh (D-IN) called "A Political Ineptitude Test."

          I think it cost Bayh a couple of points in his successful re-election campaign. But what politician doesn't have occasional mis-steps?

          My point is that you liberals ought to collect the data and do a similar thing for Boebert. She certainly has far more fuel and fodder than Bayh had, and is among those who could completely re-write the book on ineptitude.

          She is so pathetic.   

      • RepealAndReplace says:

        "productive members of society who do not depend on government assistance."

        Not even accepting the free cheese?

         

  5. Meiner49er says:

    The arguments above seem to suggest that the system is corrupt to the core and, in that sense, Boebert has done nothing deserving of exceptional punishment. Probably correct. 

    On the other hand, when the system is corrupt on the surface, as it is in her case, it's bad for everyone else in it. Boebert is so colossally stupid that she's ruining it for everyone else in it for the grift. She'll have to go.

    Alternatively, she's as brilliant as Trump and wants to get indicted as a way to rally her base even more. Of these two, I think the former is more likely.

  6. Genghis says:

    Ol' Jayson doesn't look anything like a pervert. No sir, not at all.

    • Duke Cox says:

      He has an oil derrick tattooed on his arm.. there is no more obvious phallic symbol.

      I do not know Mr. Boebert. I would not want to cast unwarranted aspersions, but he is a roughneck, never a group singled out for being dominant playing Jeopardy. In fact, I will ask a question I heard long before I turned out in the oilfield.

      What is the hardest thing on a roughneck?

      The 3rd grade…😄

    • Sparky says:

      Beyond her obvious racism, stupidity, and lawbreaking, there really isn't enough attention paid to the fact that she is the stereotypical definition of white trash. It's not just not finishing high school, it's the petty arrests and the fact that she didn't finish because she was a teen mom. I know from growing up in Southern CO that it's not an unusual story, but one would wonder just how people aren't more embarrassed by her inherent trashiness.

      • kwtree says:

        We shouldn’t be attacking Bobo on the basis of being “poor white trash”. That’s classist and wrong. She is ignorant and unqualified to represent her district- that’s pretty evident, and I was the first one on here to bring that up. She’s also a hypocritical “Christian” who drank and broke the law, married a sex offender, is stealing from her campaign donors even now.

        But there are plenty of powerful white men, born into privelege, that also show ignorance and misrepresentation. ( Buck Lamborn Gosar Trump Gohmert etc etc). My best friend, passed away 15+ years ago, was “poor white trash”. She finished her degree at 40.
        Attack Boebert’s words and deeds, not her background. 

        • RepealAndReplace says:

          Knew it was coming. And it took less than an hour for La Pomposa to weigh in on the fact that "white trash" is no longer politically correct.

          Talk about the ultimate irony. The white trash people are first the ones who go ape shit crazy over the PC people policing the language.

          PS  Kiwi, is use of the term "ape shit crazy" inappropriate as speciesism?
