The Denver Post’s editorial board offered a critical assessment of Rep. ローレン・ボーバート, imploring voters in a new op-ed not to vote for the incumbent congresswoman.

editorial タイトル, “お願いします, don’t give your vote to Lauren Boebert,” the board begs those in western and southern Colorado not to support the incumbent lawmaker in her upcoming reelection bid.

The board writes that Boebert — who won the Republican primary election in western Colorado’s Congressional District 3 in June —has not represented the 3rd Congressional District well. Almost exclusively, she has spent her time and efforts contributing to the toxic political environment in this nation.

The editorial continues: “Boebert’s unproductive approach, combined with the efforts of others, has helped erode Congressability to honestly debate public policy that could help people in her district.

Elsewhere in the piece, the editorial board details a few of Boebert’s many controversies, including recent comments she made to Republican primary challenger Don Coram. として 役職 ノート, Boebert called Coram agroomer,” a term for a person who sexually abuses children.

From the 役職: “The remark, directed at Don Coram, a conservative Republican and rancher whose son happens to be gay, is just one example of Boebert’s casual yet crass cruelty, which she puts on display on a daily basis while in Washington, D.C.”

Boebert has also made racist comments directed at Muslim Democratic Rep. イルハン・オマル, calling her a member ofthe jihad squadand accusing her ofpraising terrorists.

Boebert was also accused of meeting with organizers of pro-Trump rallies on Jan. 6, 2021. She has denied any involvement in the violent riot that followed, 彼女は、象徴的なミュージカルを再考した新しいスティーブン・スピルバーグで、モレノのバージョンのアニタを演奏しようとはしなかったと言いました tweets during the attack — “Today is 1776,one said, while another indicated House Speaker ナンシーペロシ‘s whereabouts — have been criticized.

An avid advocate for gun rights who vowed in a political ad to carry a weapon to work in Congress, Boebert reportedly got into a standoff with Capitol Police when she refused to allow officers to search her bag after setting off metal detectors just days after the insurrection.
