Boebert vows legal action over ‘disgusting’ claims she was an escort


Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has pledged to take legal action against what she described as “false and disgusting” claims that she previously worked as an escort and had two abortions.

On Tuesday, the American Muckrackers PAC issued a shocking and salacious press release claiming Boebert was working as “an unlicensed paid escort and meeting clients through SugarDaddyMeet.com.”

Among other outlandish claims, the press release added that Boebert worked as a client of a wealthy Koch family member who introduced her to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), which led to the launch of her political career. . Worse still, the PAC even claimed that pro-life Boebert had obtained two abortions, the first when she was 18 in 2004 or 2005 and the second in 2009. The PAC said the report was based on “a full investigation and a tip from a verified source close to the case who requested anonymity for fear of reprisal.

Boebert told Fox News the claims were “disgusting and false accusations.” She says:

Partisan organizations that make patently false and disgusting accusations will not stop me from advancing freedom and conservative values. The despicable conduct of this group shows why people are fed up with politics. I’m not going to sit back and pretend this is normal behavior.

This political committee, funded by far-left Democratic donors and headed by two left-leaning political operatives, published pages of false claims knowing they were completely fabricated. The law on this type of defamation is clear and this behavior will be subject to civil and criminal penalties. Attached is a letter from my attorney outlining our response to these lies.

Boebert’s attorney, John Anderson, wrote that the PAC published “a series of false and defamatory statements”. Anderson wrote:

We have compelling evidence that each of these claims is patently false. You knew that though. The muckrakers released these outlandish statements knowing they were fabricated, but you probably acted under the incorrect assumption that publishing false statements against a public figure would not create legal liability.

“This will be a costly miscalculation for the donors of Muckrakers, Wheeler and Muckrakers,” the attorney added.
