TMZ.com – Rep. Lauren Boebert says it’s dunzo between her and the theater groping guy — saying the one-time private moment came and went … and it sounds like his politics might be at play.
The Colorado congresswoman touched down in D.C. Monday to get back to work — and she chatted it up with a photog at the airport who asked all about her busy past few days outside of Capitol Hill. Of course, we’re referring to her wild night out in Denver last week.
Check out what she has to say about it … she’s got some interesting soundbites here.
For starters, Boebert again takes accountability … saying she regrets how everything played out, especially in public. She somewhat defends her fooling around as a little bit of “me time,” and she was just cutting loose and enjoying herself on a romantic date …

“All future date nights have been canceled,” Boebert told a photographer for TMZ in Washington, D.C., on Monday. “And I learned to check party affiliations before you go on a date, but all in all, you know… it was mostly a lovely time and you know, I’ve taken responsibility for my actions.”
Boebert’s date, Quinn Gallagher, is reportedly a Democrat and co-owner of a bar that has hosted drag shows—something Boebert has been an outspoken critic of.
Boebert told TMZ she and her date had “peacefully” parted ways. It had “nothing to do” with anything that was reported about him, she said, adding that his status as a “private citizen” was the issue. “Great man, great friend, and I wish him all the best,” she said.
She also said that “there’s a lot of folks who are certainly understanding and they understand that it was part of my personal life, my private time, something that I rarely indulge in” …
