  • Rep. Lauren Boebert was stopped from drinking more alcohol at a GOP gala, CNN reported.
  • The congresswoman has been embroiled in political and personal controversies.
  • Boebert has been endorsed by Donald Trump.

Rep. Lauren Boebert was “over-served” alcohol and clashed with event staff at a GOP function in December, CNN reports.

She was attending the New York Young Republican Club’s annual gala when event staff cut her off from being served more alcohol, multiple witnesses told CNN.

The Colorado Congresswoman was seated at the same table as event headliner Donald Trump, and her frequent attempts at snapping selfies with him prompted his security detail to ask her to stop.

Despite the awkward interaction, Trump endorsed Boebert last month.

“Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is a Proven Conservative and Effective Leader who delivers for Colorado, and our America First agenda,” he wrote on Truth Social.

Political and personal controversies

Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado.

The divisive Colorado congresswoman has been embroiled in political and personal controversies as she gears up for her reelection campaign.

The December incident came just three months after she apologized for her disruptive behavior at a Beetlejuice performance in Denver.

Surveillance footage also appeared to show Boebert being fondled by her date before the two were kicked out.

Boebert, 37, was escorted out of a theater in September for disrupting fellow patrons by using her phone, vaping, and singing loudly.

She was booted from the venue alongside her male companion.

“People were freaking out about me dancing in the seat at ‘Beetlejuice,'” mused Boebert at the time. “Well, they should see me in church.”

Recent events in her personal life that have made headlines include the arrest of her son Tyler Boebert, the double arrest of her ex-husband, and her divorce,

Boebert remains determined to prove her worth as a serious legislator while maintaining her identity as a MAGA warrior. 

Some Republican colleagues have come to her defense, insisting that her personal reputation has not interfered with her political career.

“It hasn’t encumbered her job performance,” GOP Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida told CNN.

But Boebert has feuded with fellow Republicans, including another highly controversial Republican woman in Congres, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

She has also been accused of “carpetbagging” as she switches districts and seeks election in a new seat in rural Colorado.

She switched to Colorado’s 4th district in December, after the narrow of victory in 2022, when Boebert won the 3rd congressional district, beating Democrat Adam Frisch by just 546 votes.

The Republican she is seeking to replace has been scathing of Boebert.

She “makes George Santos look like a saint,” said former Rep. Ken Buck, referring to the recently expelled New York Republican who’s known for his myriad lies.

To overcome the negative headlines, Boebert is leaning on her record as a conservative congresswoman, citing achievements such as the Pueblo Jobs Act, her active participation in district forums, and the backing from Trump.

“President Donald J. Trump has endorsed America-First warrior Lauren Boebert for Congress,” says a narrator in her TV ad.

Colorado’s 4th congressional district special election will be held on June 25, 2024.

Representatives for Boebert did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider sent outside regular business hours.
