Lauren Boebert is a Republican congresswoman from Colorado.
Role In Capitol Riot
During the Capitol incursion, Boebert tweeted the location status of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, even though members had been told not to do so. Eventually Twitter decided to lock down Boebert’s account.
Boebert said “rioting and looting and violence is an effective tool to advance an agenda.”
After new security measures were instituted in the Capitol, Boebert had a face-off with Capitol Police. She refused to give them her bag before going through metal detectors, despite her previous claim that she would carry a gun in the building.
Boebert spread the false conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was stolen by Joe Biden.
Boebert rallied with the far-right American Patriots Three Percent at an event called “We Will Not Comply!” opposing gun safety laws in Colorado.
Boebert has been arrested four times for resisting arrest.
Boebert encouraged employees that worked at her restaurant to open carry guns.
