Republican star Lauren Boebert spins fables about her childhood — but the real story is better

Boebert has not discussed in detail exactly what circumstances landed the future right-wing firebrand and her mother in this disadvantaged situation. An investigation by Salon suggests that it had less to do with liberal ideology and more to do with her mother's failure to obtain the child support payments to which she was rightfully entitled.

Boebert's mother, Shawn Roberts Bentz, tried valiantly for years to receive child support. — and it appears likely that she and her daughter fell victim to a corrupt phlebotomist, a professional wrestler turned deadbeat dad and a negligent North Carolina child support system that allowed Bentz's case to slide through the cracks.

Karen Weary, the North Carolina phlebotomist who took Lane's blood sample in July of 1990, was convicted of switching samples in a different case. Once child support services in North Carolina found out about this, they were mandated to notify everyone involved in Weary's cases and retest all the samples she had taken that excluded fathers.

But Boebert's mother was never notified, and Lane was never retested.

I was a big fan of Stan Lane as a kid, and in interviews he has done since he retired, he came across as a decent guy. So it's disappointing to learn he might be a deadbeat dad.

It’s okay to blame the victim and the child if they are Conservative.

The only people blamed in the article were the corrupt phlebotomist and the (alleged) deadbeat dad.

So, who is spinning the fables? Does not seem to be Bobbert.

You gotta ask yourself what purpose does this article serve, other than to play into some sort of high school mean girl smearing of a person for having a deadbeat dad and a mom who had liberal political leanings.

The twitter feed of this “so called” journalist is filled with derision and smears of conservative politicians and fanboy cheering of leftist agitators.

There’s no outright smear here, but it’s also barely a story. My guess is there’s an effort in those liberal Journo-list back channels to frame up and coming outsider politicians with meager upbringings as hayseeds and white trash thinking that the blueblooded waspy wing of the GOP will never trust them as insiders. It mostly worked with Sarah Palin, so why not try the same trick with anyone else who has the same appeal as Sarah Palin.

“ An investigation by Salon……..”
—————————————————————————————-

Wait…….stop right there.

Since when does Salon investigate things?

Did they just do an internet search and chose the best story they wanted?
Because that’s not “Investigating”.

The author looks like a child and his writing is childish.
