Why Doesn’t Lauren Boebert Respect Capitol Police?
Denver, CO — Congresswoman Lauren Boebert added yet another eyebrow-raising ‘No’ vote to her ledger this afternoon. In a vote this afternoon to award Congressional Gold Medals to honor the Capitol Police and those who risked their lives and personal safety to protect the U.S. Capitol on January 6, an overwhelming majority of both Democrats and Republicans in the House voted yes.
21 House Republicans voted ‘No’ — including Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.
David Pourshoushtari, Spokesperson for the Colorado Democratic Party:
“U.S. Capitol police officers put their lives on the line to defend our nation’s capital from insurrectionists and domestic terrorists on January 6. Honoring their service shouldn’t be a partisan issue, but apparently, Congresswoman Boebert disagrees. Why doesn’t Congresswoman Boebert believe Capitol police deserve to be honored for their service? Coloradans deserve to know.”
