Here’s the thing about the most loudly anti-government politicians: they usually end up being the most corrupt of all. Take Rand Paul’s wife’s undisclosed investment in an early COVID cure, for instance. Then there’s Marjorie Taylor Greene’s homestead exemption scandal. Now it turns out another infamous anti-government politician, Lauren Boebert, also has โ€“ you guessed it โ€“ a corruption scandal.

The Federal Election Commission is now investigating why Lauren Boebert appears to have used thousands of dollars of campaign money for personal expenses, according to CNBC. While the FEC isn’t set up to hand out criminal investigations, if it finds that the misuse of campaign funds did constitute a crime, it can and will refer Boebert to the DOJ for criminal investigation.

Notably, Boebert allegedly used campaign funds to make these thousands of dollars of personal purchases on Venmo of all things. Yes, that’s the same Venmo that yet another anti-government politician, Matt Gaetz, is accused of using to indirectly pay women for sex.


To be clear, if it’s determined that Lauren Boebert intentionally used campaign funds for personal expenses, it’ll be a big deal; you can go to prison for it. Of course Boebert will claim innocence by asserting that she used campaign funds on Venmo in error. But is she really doing herself any favors in the court of public opinion by claiming to be that incompetent?
