GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has broken her silence to set the record straight amid reports regarding her divorce from her husband Jayson.
Boebert slammed the media in a statement, saying:
“I have always spoken highly of my marriage.
“I believe in marriage.
“I believe in the power our words hold. Jayson, a man I spent half of my life with, did not sign up to be in the public limelight, and he certainly did not agree to be falsely accused of things he didn’t do.
“The stories reported about the process server, and even Jayson running over a mailbox are a complete lie.
“Jayson doesn’t sit around cleaning guns and he certainly doesn’t drink beer out of a glass, just as much as he doesn’t drink Bud Light.
“Our own home security footage shows he didn’t “sick dogs” on the process server.
“The dogs were outside when the server pulled up, they never showed aggression toward him, nor did he appear afraid of them.
“Our divorce is a private matter, but the misrepresentations must be addressed.
“Jayson deserves his privacy, not slanderous stories.
“Despite what others may say, I welcome your thoughts, and fervent, heartfelt prayers for our family.”
I have always spoken highly of my marriage. I believe in marriage. I believe in the power our words hold.
Jayson, a man I spent half of my life with, did not sign up to be in the public limelight, and he certainly did not agree to be falsely accused of things he didn’t do.

The divorce petition was filed on May 11 in Mesa County court, as Slay News reported earlier.
She wrote in her book, “My American Life”:
“Four months after we met, Jayson and I went off to get married.
“For any ‘Karen’ who may be reading this, Jayson and I broke no Colorado laws with our relationship, despite what you might be thinking.
“This was no shotgun wedding.”
“McDonald’s offered me a shift manager position that paid more than $40,000 a year, and I was just a teenager.
“The choice between a high school geography class and a high-paying job, one that would put food on the table, was an easy one.
“I dropped out of high school and took the job.”
Prayers for you and your family Lauren! I am so sorry you are going through this and sorry that you are going through this publicly!

Lauren you’re one of the best ever to set foot in public office.
