Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has been removed from the Texas Youth Summit’s speakers list after video footage showed her vaping and fondling her beau Quinn Gallagher during a Denver performance of Beetlejuice the musical.
On Friday, organizers for the event, aimed at young conservatives ages 12 to 26, announced that Boebert had been added to the lineup, despite it already being public knowledge that she had been kicked out of the Buell Theatre for disruptive behavior.
Social media posts show that the Colorado congresswoman was described by event organizers as a ‘devout Christian who seeks to honor God in all that she does.’
Those social media posts have since been deleted – including one for a VIP reception – with nearly identical posts added back to Texas Youth Summit’s Facebook and Instagram pages, but with Boebert’s name and picture removed.
Several requests for comment, including to Texas Youth Summit’s founder Christian Collins, have been ignored.
