FEC questions GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert over suspected personal use of campaign funds

The Federal Election Committee sent a letter to the treasurer of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) inquiring about the suspected use of campaign funds for her personal expenses.

State of play: The FEC letter shows four Venmo payments totaling over $6,000 described as "personal expense of Lauren Boebert billed to campaign account in error." It is then noted that the expenses were reimbursed.


What they're saying: "If it is determined that the disbursement(s) constitutes the personal use of campaign funds, the Commission may consider taking further legal action," Shannon Ringgold, FEC senior campaign finance analyst, wrote in her letter.

  • "However, prompt action to obtain reimbursement of the funds in question will be taken into consideration," Ringgold added.

The other side: "The Venmo charges were personal expenses that were billed to the campaign account in error. The reimbursement has already happened and will appear in the Q3 filing," a Boebert spokesperson told CNBC on Wednesday.

Context: The FEC prohibits the use of campaign funds for personal use.

  • The commission says personal use constitutes the use of campaign funds to fulfill "a commitment, obligation or expense of any person" that is not related to the candidate's campaign or to their office responsibilities.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
