Complaint alleges Lauren Boebert misused campaign money ahead of 2022 election 
U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert faces allegations that she misspent campaign funds, this time ahead of the 2022 election. Boebert is accused of exceeding campaign finance limits or improperly reporting nearly $60,000 spent on campaign calls and texts, potentially in support of her own reelection campaign, which she narrowly won against Democratic challenger Adam Frisch. In short, the complaint – filed this month by End Citizens United, a left-leaning political action committee – claims that Boebert either used her own political action committee’s money to benefit her reelection campaign, exceeding federal spending limits more than ten times over, or that she used that money to influence a different campaign and failed to report the spending appropriately.

Lauren Boebert Joins Ron DeSantis’ Fight Against Disney 
Lauren Boebert has joined a battle Republican lawmakers are waging against Disney, adding her support to a bill that would scrap two no-fly zones over the entertainment company’s amusement parks. The GOP representative for Colorado was among the seven original cosponsors of HR 3109, which would direct the Secretary of Transportation to rescind the exclusionary zones in the airspace above Disneyland in California and Disneyworld in Florida. In a statement, Boebert said: “Woke corporations shouldn’t get any favors from the government.”

Lauren Boebert Defends Tucker Carlson’s Leaked ‘Women’s Bathroom’ Comments 
Lauren Boebert has defended Tucker Carlson after footage was leaked showing the former Fox News host asking a makeup lady whether “pillow fights” ever break out in the women’s bathroom. The video emerged after Fox News announced it had “agreed to part ways” with Carlson, arguably the network’s biggest star, on April 24. There is intense speculation over what Carlson will do next, with some suggesting he could launch his own online show or even run for the presidency.

Most vulnerable House list runs through New York, California 
CQ Roll Call’s ranking will likely shift over the next 18 months, reflecting just how tumultuous the 2024 election cycle promises to be. At least three seats held by Democrats in North Carolina are likely to be in play after the Republican-controlled legislature redraws the district map after winning court permission to do so. Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur could face a similar fate. Colorado’s 3rd District, where Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert beat Democrat Adam Frisch by 546 votes in 2022, is also worth watching to see if Boebert is better prepared to take on Frisch in a rematch. And if Republicans figure out how to unify in a state that uses ranked-choice voting for the top four vote-getters, Alaska’s at-large representative, Democrat Mary Peltola, could also be at risk.
‘Enjoy cruelty to others’: GOP women accused of abandoning kindness to get ahead 
Salon’s Amanda Marcotte took up the question of why so many female GOP lawmakers have gone along with voting on Republican-sponsored bills that seek to curtail human rights. With members of the House like Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) becoming the female face of the party, the male wing has been provided cover as the women toe the line — and sometimes take the lead — on some of the Republican party’s most restrictive measures.
‘Trust the science’ on wolves, says Lauren Boebert 
A bill sponsored by U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert would usurp the authority of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and delist the gray wolf as an endangered species. H.R. 764, known as the “Trust the Science Act,” would reinstate a Trump-era rule that removed the gray wolf from the endangered species list. Wolves were first federally protected in the late 1960s, and the gray wolf itself was reclassified as its own endangered species in 1978. Since 2011, the species’ status has been in flux as policymakers and wolf advocates on both sides have clashed over whether to maintain stringent protections or loosen protection for the gray wolf. In 2020, the FWS issued a final rule delisting the species, but the rule was overturned, reinstating their endangered status, in early 2022.

Can the Dolores River be saved? 
So, for over a decade, stakeholders have been trying to figure out a way to protect the watershed without hurting irrigators. That effort culminated last year when Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., introduced legislation that would designate a national conservation area on 60 miles of the Dolores below McPhee Dam. He and a fellow Colorado Democrat, Sen. John Hickenlooper, recently reintroduced the bill. And, in a surprising demonstration of how broad-based support for the bill is, Rep. Lauren Boebert, a Colorado Republican not exactly known for conservation-minded policies, is also backing the legislation by reintroducing an identical House version.
Constituent Asks Rep. Lauren Boebert If Her Gun Idea Is A ‘Cruel Joke’ 
Extremist Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) co-sponsoring of a bill to lionize the AR-15 rifle as America’s “national gun” was the subject of a scathing letter to The Denver Post this week. “Is this a cruel joke?” asked Boebert constituent Andy Wiessner, who noted the firearm’s use in many mass shootings. The letter denounced the rifle as a “weapon of war” that uses bullets “designed to tear human flesh to pieces by ‘yawing,’ tumbling or fragmenting in the body, thereby causing maximum internal bleeding and tissue damage.”

How a Scrappy Group of Young Moms Transformed the Way We Think About Teen Pregnancy 
Nor is pop culture through with shaming young parents. When the gun-toting conservative Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert announced that she was becoming a grandmother at 36 because her 17-year-old son had gotten his girlfriend pregnant, stigmatizing remarks aimed at Boebert came from people across the political spectrum. Reading the social media comments, Marylouise Kuti said she had a disturbing immediate impulse to defend Boebert, whose politics she detests. “This has just really reminded me that the work we’ve done has been so impacting and so important, but it is so not over,” Kuti said.
