Rally in Pueblo calls for Rep. Lauren Boebert’s resignation

Boebert on the house floor

PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- Friday at noon, the organization Rural Colorado United is holding rallies at newly elected U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert's offices all across her district, including Pueblo, calling for her resignation in the wake of Wednesday's riot at the US Capitol.

On Wednesday, Boebert objected to the certification of the 2020 Presidential election results in key battleground states, specifically objecting to Arizona's electoral votes. However, all of the states independently certified their votes before Boebert's objection.

"Madame Speaker, I have constituents outside this building right now and I promised to be their voice," said Boebert on the floor of the House of Representatives during the debate over an objection to the Electoral votes in the state of Arizona. "It is my separate but equal obligation to weigh in on this election and object."

Not long after Boebert's speech, supporters of President Donald Trump stormed U.S. Capitol Building after a rally, attempting to stop the certification of the election for President-elect Joe Biden. Five individuals, including a U.S. Capitol Policeman, died as a result of the riot.

Local lawmakers and several organizations have said Boebert is partly to blame for the events on Wednesday, with some of them calling on her to resign.

"Lauren Boebert has betrayed the American people and is a conspirator in
the insurrection that occurred at Capitol Hill on January 6th," said Rural Colorado United in a press release. "As the citizens she represents in Congress, we cannot recall her and we cannot impeach her, but we do not accept that she is fit to represent the people of Colorado District 3 in Congress. We can only hope that her colleagues in Congress expel her."

Boebert said she denounced "all acts of violence" on the day of the riot. On Friday, she posted a video reiterating her point that she made on the House floor. But the video only touched on the protestors once, saying "these were not conservatives; conservatives do not tear their country down, we build our country up." She claimed "political hypocrisy" by comparing the protests to Black Lives Matter protests that occurred over the summer across the country, some of which turned violent.

Boebert's office has not responded to multiple requests for comment from KRDO.

Rallies calling for Boebert's resignation will take place at offices all across Colorado's 3rd Congressional District -- including Grand Junction and Pueblo. The public rally in the Steel City starts at noon near the intersection of Fifth Street and Main Street.

  1. And why didn’t anyone push for the resignation of the politicians that participated in the riots this summer. Politicians who praised the riots that destroyed city blocks. The ones who said they will help bail out the people who were arrested for destroying neighborhoods.
    It is a sad poor move to insist that she resign because she is a republican and voices the people who she represents concerns. That is what a representative should do. She didn’t have a hand in the capitol riots.
    Partisan sheep who can’t think for themselves and hold blind hate against the other “Party”. Shame is on both sides this year of tearing America apart.

    1. She had a hand indirectly because of her refusal to withdraw her support for Donald Trump’s charade of a Presidency, which resulted in those riots.
      .
      The “riots” in the summer started as peaceful protests that were fueled by bringing troops into the demonstrations. But those who ended up rioting, and anyone in public office inciting that behavior, should indeed be pushed to resign.

      1. Then there would be no “Squad” or Dems in office.
        Show PROOF she was…..oh you said INDIRECTLY. I guess you can be accused of anything INDIRECTLY.

        Welcome to Backwards World with Dems making up the rules as they go.

  2. Besides all the crime the other thing wrong with Pueblo is that it is filled with low IQ violent radical supporting marxist democrats who hate America and want to destroy it.

  3. Democrats did nothing while people were looting, burning crap down, tearing down monuments, beating others, etc during the whole BLM thing. Now you wanna get your panties in a bunch. Matter of fact I seem to recall many democrats praising the mobs over the summer. CNN would have scenes of cities burning showing with Nancy Pelosi saying stuff like, “People have the right to peacefully protest.” All you democrats need to go join Biden in the basement and stay there. We dont need you.

      1. So it’s ok to loot, tear down monuments, burn cities, hurt other people because it’s a “civil rights march?” That’s what it seems like you’re saying. What a joke.

      2. Exactly! Attacking the United States Capitol is very unlike anything else. It is not the same as people protesting because of social injustices.

        BLM is a movement. It isn’t terrorism or anarchy. The BLM movement involves peaceful protests against police brutality and systemic racism. Others have used the Floyd marches to commit crimes. They have their own agendas, such as the boogaloos who killed those two cops in California. There are outside agitators who mix in to start trouble.

        The cops have beaten the heck out of BLM protesters, not so with these clowns at the Capitol riots. Some cops were seen opening gates to let rioters enter the Capitol grounds. Cops were seen moving barricades and taking selfies with the rioters.

        The attack on the Capitol was horrible and may very well not be over. This was an attack on the United States of America! Those anarchists are still out there

    1. People do have the right to peacefully protest!

      Where was Trump hiding during the DC riots?

      We have watched Trump supporters fulfill Putin’s legacy.

      Trump supporters are doing Putin’s work.

    1. Don’t you think it’s interesting Donald Trump would sue multiple States & counties for election fraud because he felt that they hide/lost votes. But then he turned around and makes a phone call to a politician in Georgia asking this man to quote end quote “find” more ballots overturn Biden’s win. Now I don’t know where you’re from but where I’m from that’s election fraud!! So it’s okay to commit fraud as long as it is in Trump’s favor But if it’s not it’s a crime!!!! Don’t this sound a little off to you guys?

  4. Boebert needs to go along with all the other Senators and Congress men and women who were responsible for their part in this attempt to over throw our Democracy with Frump.They can all get on the bus out of town with the X-President and his Frump family. They all had a chance and blew it so get gone. AMERICA has spoken.

  5. Hawley and Cruz need to get on that bus outa town with all the rest of the Frump cult members. The majority of votes in Colorado were for Biden. (MAJORITY) The majority vote in Pueblo County was for Biden. (MAJORITY) Do you know the meaning of Majority? If you don’t like it MOVE.

  6. It sounds like Rep. Boebert chose to represent a subset of her constituents, not the majority of people in her district. I don’t blame them for asking for her resignation.

  7. I would like to see the rioters of 1/6 receive the same punishment for destruction of Federal property as those in Atlanta, Spokane, and every where else. I would like to see those who are accussed of causing someones deaths as those who murdered children. The National Guard was not invited or allwed in to quell the riots. They came in “in unmarked vehicles and kidnapped the rioters” from the federal property that they were destroying. All this Representative die was voice an opinion that many here in Colorado support. We all knew, as well as she did, that it wouldn’t work, but then, she wouldn’t be doing her job.
    Why is it the moment anyone speaks out against others opinions, someone has to be blamed? I know of several politicians that go against what their constiuents would like.

    1. Browse the Constitution Annotated

      Fourteenth Amendment Section 3

      No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

    1. Bimbo or not, she is incompetent and unfit for office…any office.

      She thought she could parade around with her lil gun- it was quite obvious with support of the terrorists that she is a co-conspirator against the United States.

      She, like every other traitor at that assault on our nation must be charged with felonies and rightfully lose their right to own or possess a firearm.

      Maybe while in prison, she will actually get more than a GED grasp of laws and our Constitution.

    1. Biden won by a pretty wide margin in fact a historically wide margin and he will finish his term also regardless of what Boebert and the rest of her herd might think.

  8. @Lou Montana BLM three founders state the BLM movement is a Marxist organization. You said “thousands of protests started and finished peacefully?. Name one that was peaceful. BLM is similar to ANTIFA who are anarchist. Both organizations seek to divide our nation and ignore The Constitution. I suggest you conduct logical and unbiased research. Boebert did nothing wrong. You just don’t like her.

  9. Boebert has absolutely no business being a Senator or in any other political position she’s an IDIOT and should resign. This isn’t in any way someone capable of representing Colorado or any other state. Anyway if she should somehow end up staying she will never be reelected. Maybe a Den Mother or not.

  10. Use the 14th on her also….she took an oath to uphold the constitution and then went against the election, spread lies and violated her oath of office……OUT SHE GOES NEVER TO RETURN!!!!
