Conservative Group That Took Down Madison Cawthorn Now Pledging To ‘Fire’ Lauren Boebert

Now that they’ve assured Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) won’t have a second term in Congress, a conservative group is focused on doing the same to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO).

According to Matt Lewis of The Daily Beast, based on what happened to Cawthorn in Tuesday’s North Carolina GOP primary, Boebert should be worried:

But can lightning strike twice? According to David B. Wheeler, head of that group (The American Muckrakers PAC—also known as FireBoebert.com), Boebert’s primary is similar to Cawthorn’s. The districts, he says, are “very similar” demographically. And just as Cawthorn faced a North Carolina state legislator, Boebert’s challenger is Colorado Republican state Sen. Don Coram. There’s also a sense that neither incumbent cares about their district, but are instead more interested in their national profile.

There’s certainly plenty of gold to mine when it comes to Boebert’s past and her brushes with the law, including the fact she married the man who exposed his penis to her and another underage girl and was later charged for that crime. Lewis notes:

“There will be no dearth of material to use against Boebert, including things that are yet to emerge (scandals are sort of like cockroaches—for every one you see, there are probably a hundred hiding).”

How good are the chances that Boebert will join Cawthorn in the unemployment line? Better than you might expect, Lewis concludes:

“It won’t be easy, but it seems at least possible that Boebert will continue the trend that started last week with Cawthorn’s defeat. If that happens, it’s game on. Defeating flawed politicians like Cawthorn and Boebert after one term would serve as a sort of course correction and send a message to everyone else.

“Not everyone is Harry Houdini. Not everyone is Donald Trump. Sometimes people are held accountable. Sometimes, the empire strikes back.”

If the stars are perfectly aligned, we might even get a trifecta and see Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) kicked to the curb. The Georgia primary is next Tuesday, so we won’t have long to wait for an answer.
