Rep. Lauren Boebert Cleared of Rep. Jayapal’s Baseless Partisan Complaint
Representative Lauren Boebert (CO-03) was cleared by the House Committee on Ethics from Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s (WA-07) baseless and partisan ethics complaint.
Representative Lauren Boebert stated: “I would love to see how many taxpayer dollars Rep. Jayapal wasted on this ridiculous ethics complaint rehashing leftist media talking points and offering no real substance. She represents the worst of the entrenched swamp creatures who waste taxpayer money on partisan crusades and endless investigations. Luckily, the House Committee on Ethics saw through Rep. Jayapal’s posturing and dismissed her ethics complaint.”
Rep. Jayapal abused the formal ethics investigation process to advance false, politically motivated attacks against Rep. Boebert. On April 16, 2021, Rep. Boebert prepared a thorough response for the House Committee on Ethics with documented proof that Rep. Jayapal’s complaint was nothing more than baseless partisan rhetoric.
After considering the evidence, the House Committee on Ethics ruled that there was no basis to investigate the complaint any further, and informed Rep. Boebert on June 11, 2021 that there would be no further investigations on this matter.
