Lauren Boebert Posts Unmasked Video Inside Denver Airport in Violation of Federal Law

(Superspreading the love – Promoted by Colorado Pols)

Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert posted a video from inside Denver’s airport on Monday morning. During the video she is not wearing a mask, in violation of federal law, which states that masks are to be worn at all times on airport property.

The Transportation Security Administration, charged with keeping people safe at airports, is responsible for enforcing the mask law. Denver International Airport’s website explains the law on its COVID safety page:

“While face masks have been required at DEN since May 2020, federal law now requires anyone over the age of 2, to wear a mask at all times in and on airport property. Failure to comply may result in removal from airport property and denial of re-entry. Refusing to wear a mask in or on the airport is a violation of federal law and individuals may be subject to penalties under federal law.”

Of the dozens of people walking past Boebert during her 40-second video, everyone who is close enough to have the front of their head visible appears to be wearing a mask.

In July Boebert gleefully tweeted that the Texas statehouse Democrats who were seen flying without masks “will now be known as #FugitiveSuperspreaders

She has called out Speaker Nancy Pelosi for failing to wear a mask in public.

Boebert’s press office did not immediately return an email request for comment. This article will be updated with any response received.

    But the real question is whether she was carrying Lori Saine's gun while at the airport.

  3. NOV GOP meltdown says:

    The fact that the law has never caught up with Trump and his many crimes emboldens this type of behavior from his flunkies.  Zero regard for the law, and for fellow Americans. Rules are for other people !

    A few of these folks need to actually go to jail, or our country will slowly devolve into a banana republic.

    "denial of re-entry" will fuck up her travel plans.

    Silly Erik, laws are for the little people, not for special MAGAhats. Just like the laws on campaign finance, or financial disclosure, or public drunkenness, or gun possession in DC, or waging war on the government… those don’t apply when you MAGA.

    Well, there are warnings —

    now, if the TSA is interested in enforcement, they really ought to provide a way to report the violations.

    [There was an Alaska state legislator who was blocked from flying Alaska Air by the airline's decision — which meant she needed to drive from her district near Anchorage to the state Capitol for the session.  I think I remember it was a 17-hour drive, taking her through a part of Canada. I'm one wishing there might be at least SOME effort to penalize Boebert, even if it can't block her travel.]

    It's genuinely amazing how quickly she's deputized herself as an expert on Afghanistan simply because she has a Twitter account and has convinced herself that the only things that matter are things captured in tweets. Remarkably similar to her cult leader.

    Is there anyone other than her who really thinks we're going to take foreign policy advice from the gun restaurant lady?
