Lauren Boebert’s most wacky scandal occurred in September 2023, when she and her date were asked to leave a family-friendly production of the play Beetlejuice in Denver, CO (via Associated Press). Initial reports simply said Boebert had been asked to leave because she had been vaping and had been distracting, but as more detail was revealed to the public, it looked worse and worse for Boebert.
Footage from a security video showed the conservative U.S. representative engaging in heavy petting with her date while surrounded by families and children. She could also be seen using a vape pen, according to the New York Times. The Associated Press reported that, when asked to leave, she reportedly became enraged and asked if the people escorting her out knew who she was, implying she was too big of a deal to have to follow rules.
It has since been revealed that Boebert’s date owns a gay-friendly bar in Aspen, Colorado, which hosts drag shows (via The New York Post). Considering Boebert’s vocal opposition to gay marriage and to drag shows, the irony and hypocrisy of the situation were not missed by her critics. Her supporters, however, continue to see her behavior as harmless, and her campaign manager, Drew Sexton said of the incident, “I can confirm the stunning and salacious rumors: in her personal time, congresswoman Lauren Boebert is indeed a supporter of the performing arts (gasp!)” (via Associated Press). He went on to say that Lauren “pleads guilty to singing along, laughing and enjoying herself.”
