Liberals rush to spread false Lauren Boebert escort and abortion rumors

Democrats have picked up on claims by a political action committee that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) worked as a prostitute and had multiple abortions — claims based on zero actual evidence.

On Tuesday, the American Muckrakers PAC, co-founded by Democrat and former North Carolina state Senate nominee David Wheeler, released claims that Boebert previously worked as an escort on a sugar daddy website and underwent at least two abortions, one of which one was related to her alleged sugar baby work.

For Boebert’s critics, the idea that the anti-abortion rights conservative had actually had multiple abortions was compelling evidence of Boebert’s hypocrisy. The allegations quickly circulated in anti-Trump “resistance” communities online. Occupy Democrats, a popular liberal Twitter account, acknowledged it was not clear whether the allegations were true. But it urged its nearly 400,000 Twitter followers to retweet the “IF YOU THINK IT’S TRUE” claims anyway. Boebert’s name was trending on Twitter.

The allegations against Boebert have been echoed by other prominent liberal Twitter pundits around the internet. Some current and former Democratic politicians, including former House candidate Brianna Wu, Bernie Sanders ally and former House candidate Nina Turner, and current Kentucky Senate hopeful Charles Booker.

Boebert tweeted about the allegations Tuesday night, giving them “four Pinocchios.” Boebert is consulting with her attorneys about a possible legal case, said an officer in Boebert’s office.

American Muckrakers PAC did not respond to requests for comment.

The salacious Boebert allegations were fueled in part by the fact that the founders of the American Muckrakers PAC backed up their outlandish claims against another Republican congressman. They gained some political notoriety earlier this year after releasing several of Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s (R-NC) salacious videos that helped derail his re-election campaign.

This time, however, the group has no videos to back up their claims. Instead, they have heavily redacted text message screenshots with an anonymous party said to be close to Boebert. On the news, the anonymous source outlines a story that veers into the realm of lurid liberal fan fiction. The text messages describe Boebert as a sex worker who was pounced on a sugar daddy website by one of her clients, a member of the Koch family. That client then introduced Boebert to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who urged her to run for office, according to the PAC.

If the source’s story isn’t wild enough, the interviewer on the other end of the text conversation — one of the PAC’s staff — pushes the source further. After the anonymous source writes that they “don’t understand” why Cruz would support Boebert’s political endeavors, the interviewer claims without any evidence that Boebert blackmailed Cruz.

“It’s obvious,” writes the interviewer. “She blackmailed him.”

“Omg I never thought about that!” the source replies.

“Yep,” the interviewer texts back. “You know her. She’s a razor sharp (sic) little witch.”

At least one of the source’s claims can already be disproved. In the text message log, the source provided the PAC with an image described as showing Boebert wearing a short white dress and sitting on a bed. The source claims the photo was taken from Boebert’s profile on a sugar daddy website. But the woman in the picture is actually Melissa Carone, an alleged voter fraud witness cited by Rudy Giuliani, according to a Daily Mail Report from 2020.

Boebert himself does not have a particularly close relationship to the truth. Among other things, Boebert said in 2020 that she hopes QAnon, the conspiracy theory that says Democrats are sexually abusing children in satanic rituals, is real. She has also claimed that she started carrying a gun after a man was beaten to death outside her restaurant. But CNN reported in 2021 that the man died of a meth overdose, not murder.
