GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Wrapping up a rocky and controversial first year, Representative Boebert announced she’s looking for two more years. “I’m running for congress in Colorado’s 3rd congressional district in 2022 to proudly represent my constituents once again,” said Congresswoman Boebert.
Boebert blew past the controversies of the past year including her alleged involvement with the January 6th insurrection. The house committee investigating the attack has moved to confiscate her phone and social media records along with eleven other republicans. “Uncovering the lies we’re being told in the news everyday, and holding people accountable, that’s my job right now,” said Representative Boebert.
But, it was Boebert recently conjuring stories about representative Ilhan Omar.
“I looked to my left, and there she is, Ilhan Omar, and, I said, “”Well, she doesn’t have a backpack we should be fine,”” said Representative Boebert in a video clip recorded back in November.
Democrats are now weighing whether to discipline Boebert who has since been parodied on Saturday Night Live and fodder for late night talk shows.
Boebert bragged about her accomplishments. “I’ve introduced 24 bills this year, and co-sponsored nearly 200 pieces of legislation. I authored, and filed over 100 amendments during the appropriations process. More than any other member in congress.”
She has yet to pass any legislation dealing with two of the district’s biggest issues dealing with extreme drought and COVID cases pushing local hospitals to capacity. When asked if Boebert, or her family had been vaccinated, what her stance was on vaccinations, and what she recommends, she was quick to answer. “Let me be clear. Me not answering your question does not make me anti-vaxx. This certainly makes me pro freedom, and pro keeping personal health information private.”
Currently, nine candidates including one Republican are gunning for her seat by running in the June Primary. January 3 marks one full term year Congresswoman Boebert has served which is the day before the federal COVID vaccine mandate for health care workers. “For them to be punished by unconstitutional mandates is un-American, and absolutely disgusting,” said Representative Boebert.
