Lauren Boebert’s own campaign gets her state wrong
The Representative’s state was listed as Utah not Colorado, in a recent filing

Republican US Rep Lauren Boebert’s campaign incorrectly stated she is a representative of Utah not Colorado in a report submitted with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

In an amended filing, submitted on Thursday, Boebert’s was listed as being hailing from the neighbouring western state.

Forbes reached out to Ms Boebert’s team when it noticed the error. “Thanks for reaching out,” said spokesperson Jake Settle to the news organisation, “I flagged this for our team!”

Ms Boebert assumed office in January 2021. She formerly worked on maintaining pipelines and pumping stations. She obtained her GED diploma a few months before getting elected to the US House of Representatives.

She is a vocal gun-rights activist, and owns a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado, named Shooters Grill, which is famous for its armed waitresses – who serve patrons while open carrying fully loaded firearms. Slogans at the restaurant include “I got loaded at Shooters Grill” and menu items include the “Ricochet” burger and “Bullseye” omelette.

The Rifle resident became an advocate for firearms after an altercation took place in her back alley. It “ended with a man losing his life,” she told Barcroft TV. “I looked into getting a concealed weapons permit so I could carry. I learned in Colorado you do not need a concealed weapon permit, you can open carry.” The idea for her restaurant ensued.

The GOP has been ridiculed a number of times for embarrassing blunders. In March, it made a spelling mistake in a complaint about school closures on its official Twitter account.

“Keeping schools closed has DEVESTATING effects on the mental health, social and economic situation and academic achievement of America’s children,” read the now-deleted tweet.

“The science is in – schools can safely re-open!”

Of course, it spelt “devastating” wrong, prompting social media users to tell them to “go back to school”.

Other republican errors include President Trump in 2017 saying he “met with the president of the Virgin Islands” to discuss the devastation caused by hurricanes in Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida. He was, of course, the president of the US Virgin Islands, so couldn’t have had a meeting with “the president” there.
