Anti-Republican group calls for ethics investigation into Boebert after ‘Beetlejuice’ incident

DENVER (KDVR) – A Washington, DC-based anti-Republican group asked the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate Rep. Lauren Boebert’s actions during a performance of “Beetlejuice” in Denver.

The Congressional Integrity Project said Boebert behaved in “blatant disregard for the rules of the House of Representatives” during the incident.

According to its website, the Congressional Integrity Project is committed to “exposing the reality behind Republicans’ politically motivated oversight and investigations of President Biden and Democrats.”

The group accused the Colorado Republican of failing to behave in a manner that reflected the House’s credibility by “engaging in public, lewd behavior at a family-oriented theatrical production.”

“Representative Boebert’s actions were not only appallingly rude and inappropriate, but also constituted a breach of her fundamental duty as a member of the House of Representatives to uphold the letter and spirit of House rules,” the group said in a letter to OCE.

Boebert and her guest were escorted from the Buell Theater after they “failed to adhere to the venue’s policies,” a spokesperson told FOX31.

She initially denied allegations that she smoked vapor during the performance, but surveillance video from the theater showed the congresswoman exhaling vapor in the audience.

On September 15, Boebert apologized for the “unwanted attention” Their trip brought.

In her apology, Boebert said she “really didn’t remember vaping” when she discussed it with her campaign team that night. However, she added that regardless of her beliefs, “it is now clear that this was not correct.”

Boebert was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2020. She is currently representing Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District in her second term after narrowly defeating Democrat Adam Frisch in 2022.
