Security footage obtained by 9NEWS Denver shows Boebert sitting in her seat and reaching into her bag. In the video, she can be seen bringing an object to her mouth, sucking on it, and then blowing out a cloud of vapor. 

Later in the performance, a pregnant woman sitting behind her can be seen saying something to Boebert. The woman told The Denver Post that she asked Boebert to stop vaping, adding that the Colorado lawmaker refused.

The pregnant woman, whose name the Post did not release because she feared “backlash” from Boebert and her supporters, also said that Boebert called her a “sad and miserable person.”

Boebert’s campaign manager, Drew Sexton, confirmed in a statement that Boebert was escorted out of the performance but denied that she had been vaping.

He claimed that the fog machines and electronic cigarettes used in the show might have resulted in “a misunderstanding from someone sitting near her,” according to The Washington Post.

An incident report provided to Insider by Denver Arts and Venues said that two patrons, one of whom was later identified as Boebert, received three different complaints of “vaping, singing, causing a disturbance.”

Footage also shows Boebert dancing in her seat.

In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Boebert said she pleads “guilty to laughing and singing too loud! “

Boebert’s team did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
