Boebert Caught Using Campaign Cash At Date’s Establishment

Representative Lauren Boebert’s reelection campaign recently spent hundreds of dollars at a bar co-owned by the man with whom she was seen engaging in inappropriate behavior last month during a performance of “Beetlejuice” in Denver.

Before the incident where Rep. Lauren Boebert and her companion were ejected from a local theater for causing a disturbance, the Colorado congresswoman had already spent several hundred dollars at Hooch, a venue known for hosting drag shows.

According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, Boebert’s campaign (R-Col.) disbursed $317.48 for an event in late July at the Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar in Aspen, Colorado.

Boebert, known for her unconventional approach, acknowledged a brief romantic involvement with Quinn Gallagher, co-owner of the Aspen bar. Their relationship ended shortly after their controversial behavior at the “Beetlejuice” performance, where they were removed from the theater.

The 36-year-old congresswoman jokingly suggested that their political differences may have contributed to their breakup, stating, “All future date nights have been canceled, and I learned to check party affiliations before going on a date,” in a statement to TMZ.

Boebert, frequently mired in controversy, faced criticism for her disruptive conduct at the Denver showing of “Beetlejuice,” which included vaping and inappropriate touching, as captured in the footage. Theater officials claimed they violated policies by taking photos and received complaints from nearby patrons.

In April, Boebert filed for divorce from her husband, Jayson, and disclosed her son Tyler’s teenage pregnancy a month earlier. Additionally, she has faced multiple arrests in the past.

Initially, Boebert’s campaign defended her behavior. Still, after the incriminating footage emerged, she adopted a more apologetic tone, admitting that she sometimes is too eccentric. She also claims to be well known for her animated personality, which she reveals that, on some occasions, might be overly animated.

From July to September, Boebert’s campaign reported raising $853,840 per FEC filings for the third quarter, with $1,434,675 in cash on hand. Her primary Democratic opponent, Adam Frisch, claims to have raised $3.4 million. Frisch narrowly lost to Boebert by a mere 546 votes in their previous election.
