GovTrack.us is a free Congress-tracking website in operation since 2004 that aggregates information on the status of legislation, congressional voting records, and other facts and statistics from official government websites and then uses the latest technology to make the information more easily accessible. GovTrack takes the old legislative-tracking website Thomas, which expired in 2016, further by including biographical information on members of Congress, geographic information on their congressional districts, cost estimates from the Congressional Budget Office and more.
GovTrack now officially proclaims Boebert a Jan. 6 participant
GovTrack now displays a boxed statement near the top of its page about Colorado’s 3rd District House Representative, Lauren Boebert, that says she…
…”is among the Republican legislators who participated in the months-long attempted coup that included the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol. Many of these legislators were a part of a coordinated campaign by the Trump Administration to pressure the Vice President to exclude Democratic states from the electoral count rather than follow the Constitution’s procedure in which Congress may vote to exclude electors. On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, Boebert voted to reject the state-certified election results of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania (states narrowly won by Democrats), which would have excluded them from the Electoral College count that determined the next President of the United States and potentially changed the outcome of the election. These legislators pumped the same lies and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol.”
On January 6, 2021, Boebert praised the “Stop the Steal” rioters outside the Capitol by tweeting “Today is 1776.” Organizers of the 1/6 Capitol attack have disclosed that they were in communication with Boebert’s office in the lead-up to the event. She also accepted a gift of a Glock pistol from a group of Three Percenters, one of the far right wing extremist groups that helped organize the Jan. 6th Capitol attack.
No activity on bills she’s introduced, no accomplishments in Congress
GovTrack lists Boebert’s recently introduced bills, none of which have any relationship to the accomplishments she fraudulently portrayed to constituents as being “Boebert Wins” in her March 22, 2022 blast email and official web post titled “Nine Legislative Priorities Signed into Law.” Boebert was claiming as her own the advances Democrats achieved for the American people after they approved the Omnibus spending bill of 2022, which Boebert had voted against.
GovTrack reports that “most [of Boebert’s recently-introduced] legislation shows no activity after being introduced.”
