  • Lauren Boebert is running for Colorado 4th District instead of 3rd she is in now
  • Debated eight other Republican primary hopefuls and was fifth in poll of viewers
  • Mocked over the poor result and being kicked out of theater for bad behavior 

Disgraced congresswoman Lauren Boebert may face humiliating defeat even before the election after awful behavior got her kicked out of a theater.

Boebert placed fifth out of nine hopefuls in a straw poll after a debate for Colorado’s Fourth District, prompting widespread mockery even from Republicans.

Logan County Commissioner Jerry Sonnenberg led the poll of 100 voters and is considered a serious challenge to Boebert despite her name recognition.

Boebert was elected to the Third District in 2020 and became one of Donald Trump’s loudest supporters, but in December announced she was shifting to the Fourth.

Plagued by scandal since her debauchery and obnoxiousness at performance of the musical Beetlejuice in September, she faced a tough contest from Democrats and will  contest the solid Republican seat instead.

She was caught heavy-petting with boyfriend Quinn Gallagher, waving her hands, singing loudly, photographing the show, taking selfies with the flash on, and vaping.

When staff asked the couple to leave, she refused, saying ‘don’t you know who I am?’ bared her teeth, and gave them the finger – all caught on camera.

A tidal wave of criticism followed and Boebert initially lied about her actions and dismissed the scandal, before being forced into an embarrassing apology.

Claiming switching districts was to get ‘a fresh start for me and my boy’ after her very public divorce and not due to a likely defeat, her backup plan hasn’t started well.

Boebert got just 12 votes from the debate viewers, behind Sonnenberg by 22 votes, and former Colorado House Minority Leader Mike Lynch by 20.

Others getting more votes than her were filmmaker and radio host Deborah Flora with 18 and state House Minority Whip Richard Holtorf with 17.

Boebert attended the debate with her grandson Josiah, after becoming a grandmother at age 36 last year.

Her dismal results prompted even her Republican colleagues to mock her for the scandal, and question whether she would even be able to win the primary.

Fellow Trump-supporting Congresswoman Lisa McClain roasted her with a joke at the Washington Press Club Foundation on Wednesday.

‘If everyone could, please keep their hands above the table. And I know it’s date night for some of you, but no inappropriate touching,’ she said in a speech.

‘That includes you Lauren Boebert. No vaping, either.’

McClain also mocked George Santos, who was forced to quit Congress after lying extensively about his background, as an ‘Oscar winner, an Emmy winner, a two-time Olympian’.

She also warned guests to be careful with the silverware and their gold necklaces around Senator Bob Menendez, who is facing bribery charges, allegedly accepting gold bars as payment.

Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene also warned Boebert she should be ‘very concerned’ after the straw poll result. 

‘I saw that she came in fifth place in the straw poll over the weekend which she should be very concerned about,’ Greene told The Hill. 

‘I think that’s a serious primary and it seems like there are some good candidates in there.’

Greene said it remained to be seen what happened with the polling in the Colorado district, but she was not looking to get involved in the race just yet.

‘I think she’s got to earn those people’s support,’ she said of Boebert.

Congresswoman Jasmine Crockett, a Texas Democrat, also mocked Boebert’s poor result on Twitter.

‘Before I go to bed, I thought it would only be fitting to send ‘thoughts & prayers’ to my colleague, Lauren Boebert,’ she wrote. 

‘It’s my understanding that she placed 5th in her first straw poll of the election cycle. Now how many of y’all think BoBo gonna try to convince us that polls don’t matter[?]’

Former New York assistant attorney general Tristan Snell attributed the poor showing to her having ‘abandoned her congressional district because she was going to lose’.

Boebert came under fire from other candidates on this issue during the debate, when Lynch asked her to give him ‘the definition of carpetbagger’.

‘Is this a Mary Poppins question? So yes, I have moved into the Fourth District. My boys and I needed a fresh start. That’s been very public,’ she replied. 

‘The crops may be different in Colorado’s 4th District, but the values aren’t.’

Boebert was also reminded of when in 2021 she criticized former Democratic state lawmaker Kerry Donovan for running for the Third District when she didn’t live there.

‘Running for office is a calling, not a career move,’ she said at the time. 

‘Perhaps Ms Donovan should focus on where she lives, works and votes instead of trying to increase her political position by pandering to folks she doesn’t even know.’ 

Boebert insisted her case was different as she had already moved to the Fourth District, with a new home in Windsor.

Video from the theater showed Gallagher rubbing her chest, while Boebert tugged at his crotch while both were seated. Neither exposed themselves.  

The GOP lawmaker was asked to leave after ushers noticed her vaping and taking photos on her phone.

She was also singing along loudly and taking selfies with the flash on to the annoyance of other theatregoers.

Surveillance footage showed Boebert, wearing a tight, low-cut gold dress and high heels, making a considerable fuss as she and Gallagher left – taking a selfie as she left the auditorium and angrily baring her teeth at staff.

An incident report noted the two received a warning at intermission about their behavior.

But five minutes into the second act, security officials received another complaint about a person being loud and recording the show.

‘They told me they would not leave,’ an usher said, according to the report.

‘I told them that they need to leave the theater and if they do not, they will be trespassing.

‘The patrons said they would not leave. I told them I would (be) going to get Denver Police. They said go get them.’

Afterwards, Boebert and her smartly-dressed date were caught on camera walking off through the empty nighttime streets of Denver.

Boebert took several days to apologize after initially denying most of it, claiming the vape smoke was actually from a fog machine and issuing a sarcastic statement playing down the anger.

‘The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I’m truly sorry,’ she wrote in a statement. 

‘There’s no perfect blueprint for going through a public and difficult divorce, which over the past few months has made a challenging personal time for me and my entire family.’

Addressing the lies she initially told about the incident Boebert wrote: ‘Whether it was the excitement of seeing a much-anticipated production or the natural anxiety of being in a new environment, I genuinely did not recall vaping that evening’.

Boebert’s divorce from Jason, 36, her husband of 18 years and father to her four children, is ongoing after the couple’s shock split in May.

At the time Boebert insisted that she had always been faithful throughout her marriage.
