When Lauren Boebert won her 2020 primary campaign against Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO), The New York Times described her as "a political novice and gun-rights activist who has spoken approvingly of the pro-Trump conspiracy theory QAnon." "Republican and QAnon supporter Lauren Boebert wins House race in Colorado," was the headline in Axios when she won the November general election.
And on Saturday, Boebert returned to her QAnon political roots by alleging the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the U.S. Supreme Court was part a vast conspiracy to protect pedophiles.
To understand her allegation, one must know that on Friday, police in Maine arrested former independent candidate Eliot Cutler on child pornography charges.
Cutler was widely seen as electing far-right Gov. Paul LePage with his third-party "spoiler" campaigns for governor, which Raw Story featured in the headline in our story on the arrest.
