Arriving back in Washington, D.C., a TMZ reporter asked Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert about the incident at a Denver presentation of “Beetlejuice” last weekend, which ended in her walk of shame and ejection from the theater.
The congresswoman’s response appeared to blame her own bad behavior on the party affiliation of her date.
“All future date nights have been cancelled, and I learned to check party affiliations before you go on a date. It was mostly a lovely time.”
Also, “He’s a wonderful man, it was a great time … He’s a private citizen, but we have peacefully parted at this time.”
The reporter said that Boebert’s response indicated that this was the first date for the two gropers, yet they reached third base publicly.
The Congressional Integrity Project is asking the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate Boebert and hold her accountable to House Rule 23, the House Code of Official Conduct, which requires that Members must “at all times behave in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.”
