The Republican-led PAC previously known as Fire Cawthorn, whose initial mission successfully unseated Republican North Carolina Congressman Madison Cawthorn has shifted gears and will go after Mean Girl Lauren Boebert (Q-Colo.).
Renamed “Fire Boebert,” the group was successful in its quest to remove Cawthorn from office because he was an embarrassment to America. They found and amplified Cawthorn’s inflammatory rhetoric, juvenile behavior and criminal actions, which likely helped in defeating his reelection bid.
Armed now with a winning formula, the group has set up a website focusing on removing Boebert from office for similar actions. Boebert has spent her brief Congressional career focusing on trolling social media and getting clicks, as opposed to actually governing. Their goal is to defeat Boebert in the June 28th Colorado primary.
Boebert’s faced many problems of her own making. Her angry diatribes on third-tier political talk shows and her antics in and around the Capitol have angered many in the GOP caucus. She’s been accused of misusing campaign donations to get money to pay off her failing restaurant’s tax liability; she claimed $22,000 in mileage expenses from her campaign in 2020 despite having attended only one rally in her district. She also had her campaign pay thousands of dollars in utility and housing expenses for her personal property.
Boebert has been arrested four times and she’s faced multiple accusations of fabricating stories of her life and business to create a personae of a successful, independent business woman, though her restaurant loses money and the her husband–a convicted sex offender who exposed his penis to teenage girls in a bowling alley and impregnated Boebert when she was just 17 and he was 24–works as a consultant for an energy company. Boebert failed to report her husband’s $478,000 in income in 2020 on campaign disclosures or in her initial House financial disclosure forms.
