Lauren Boebert apologizes for groping scandal: ‘It’s been 20 years since I’ve dated — back then there weren’t infrared cameras’

During a recent interview on Fox News, Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert put some perspective on her now-infamous date inside a Denver theater where she and her male companion fondled each other in place view of other theater attendees while watching the musical “Beetlejuice.” 

Fox Host Jesse Watters: “What happened? You had a little too much to drink?” 

Boebert: “No, Jesse, not at all. I was very excited about the actual musical. … Please see the musical if it’s in your area and please let me know how it ends because I’ve yet to see the ending.” 

Watters: “So you were so enthralled by Beetlejuice you got carried away?” 

Boebert: “A little bit. You now, Jesse, it’s been 20 years since I was in the dating scene, and back then there were not infrared cameras watching my every move, but it’s a lesson learned. As I said, I am truly humbled and apologize to my people in Colorado’s 3rd District, those who I love — in my position it is my responsibility to bring levity to my constituents’ lives, never gravity. So I will work to only bring levity to them and try to bring as much solutions as possible. This whole week has been a total distraction.”
