"On Tuesday, though, the campaign submitted an amended report for that quarter. Two of the disbursements, each for $2,000, are now described as “Rent billed to campaign via Venmo in error,” while the other two were categorized as “rent/utilities."


I mean, she is an idiot....

Misappropriating funds. I'm sure a firm wrist slap will occur.

What do you expect from someone who didn't see the value of completing her high school requirements until right before she declared?

Boebert is remarkably stupid, even out of the norm for modern Republican candidates, so that is going some. But, that is really the problem with how elections are now run. With incessant gerrymandering and stacking the stupid into concentrations of stupidity. But, even her constituents are tiring of her constant self-promotion. Where Voters Are Losing Patience With Lauren Boebert (Politico):
Among voters in Pueblo—the largest and most politically unpredictable city in Boebert’s vast district—there is a growing sense of exasperation with the freshman representative not yet six months into her tenure.

Pueblo County, located on Colorado’s dusty, windswept plains two hours south of Denver, is the swingiest part of Boebert’s district—making it a key test of her staying power. The county is nothing like the conservative, government-skeptical towns west of the Continental Divide, where Boebert is from, or the glitzy, liberal ski areas in Aspen and Telluride, which she also represents. While Boebert’s district overall is purple—about 32 percent Republican, 26 percent Democratic and 40 percent unaffiliated, among registered voters—the Pueblo County electorate flips this dynamic, with about 36 percent of voters registered as Democrats, 25 percent as Republicans and 37 percent unaffiliated. Still, big-money donors here often give to candidates from opposing parties, independents regularly vote Republican, and blue-dog Democrats skew conservative. Boebert’s Democratic opponent in the 2020 race won the county by just 204 votes.

Boebert has never been good with money - or business:

"Shooters Grill, the gun-themed restaurant that is central to Lauren Boebert’s political celebrity, has had financial issues. Shooters lost almost a quarter-million dollars in 2018 and has been hit with tax liens totaling nearly $20,000. #copolitics #CO03"

Rep. Boebert paid off nearly $20K in state tax liens in 2020

"Between August 2016 and February 2020, Shooters Grill, the gun-themed Rifle restaurant owned by Boebert, accumulated eight liens for nonpayment of unemployment insurance premiums, according to records from the Garfield County Clerk and Recorder’s office.

The liens, filed by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, indicate that Shooters Grill was delinquent on UI premiums dating back to its opening in 2013. By early 2020, Boebert’s restaurant owed the state a total of $19,552.86, including interest and penalties."

Now we know where she got the money. Boebert is trying to be a Trump - she's running a grift, using the money and celebrity of being a candidate (and now Congressperson) to fix her financial woes.

"The only previous disclosure Boebert has filed with the House Ethics Committee covered the 2018 calendar year 2018 and showed that Shooters Grill, had a net operating loss of $242,347. Since then, the Boeberts' second restaurant, Smokehouse 1776, went out of business following a 2017 food poisoning incident at a local fair. Jayson Boebert's consulting company also became delinquent with the state of Colorado after failing to file a periodic report." Lauren Boebert fails to file 2019 financial disclosure; sale of cargo plane remains a mystery (Salon). Shooter's Grill also had its license pulled for violating COVID restrictions, but only after losing money in 2018 and 2019 (no pandemic then).

Bingo. I think it's the same with some of the other new GQP representatives like Cawthorne and MTG. They are not there to serve their constituents.
