An arrest involving this Republican may destroy their reelection chances

Lauren Boebert

Committing a serious crime is nothing to overlook, especially in the world of politics. That’s why this politician is in deep trouble.

And an arrest involving this Republican may destroy their reelection chances.

On Tuesday, Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) son was arrested for alleged theft in the state of Colorado.

He’s now facing 22 charges and five felonies for his crimes.

According to the Rifle Police Department, 18-year-old Tyler Boebert’s five felony charges include four for criminally possessing ID documents and one for the conspiracy to commit charge.

He’s also been slapped with misdemeanor charges that include: criminally trespassing in someone’s vehicle, identity theft, and delinquency of a minor.

Unfortunately for the Boebert family, this isn’t the first time he’s had a run-in with law enforcement.

According to reports from Westword, in 2022 Tyler Boebert received a “careless driving causing bodily injury” ticket after he flipped an SUV owned by his father into a creek bed. The incident caused the injury of one of his friends.

Tyler made a plea deal which led to him being forced to participate in the “Alive at 25” program which teaches driver safety.

The Colorado congresswoman’s son also has a child of his own, making Rep. Boebert a grandmother at just 37-years-old.

Tyler and the other three sons of Lauren Boeberts’ are also the children of her ex-husband Jayson Boebert.

At the beginning of February, Jayson received a restraining order from Lauren after allegedly attempting to hurt her and himself in the span of over a year.

In a court filing in Garfield County on February 2, Rep. Boebert said that Jayson “made multiple suicidal threats and threats to harm me over the past 14 months.”

All of this comes at a time when Lauren Boebert is working to win a different congressional seat in Colorado.

She’s currently representing the 3rd District of Colorado in the U.S. House, but in December she announced that she wouldn’t be running for reelection to that seat in 2024.

Instead Boebert is planning on running for the 4th District in Colorado which will likely shape up to be an easier race for her.

“I am going to do everything in my power to represent the 3rd District well for the remainder of this term as I work to earn the trust of grassroots conservative voters in the 4th District to represent them in 2025,” Boebert said in a post on the social media site, X.

But with a crucial race to win in November, the family issues she’s been experiencing will do nothing but become major distractions for her campaign.
