U.S. Rep Lauren Boebert is blocking users on Twitter, which could open door to lawsuits

Colorado Politics: Colorado’s first-year congresswoman, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Rifle, continues to make a name for herself in her first week in office.

But that’s come with a lot of criticism, and part of her response, at least on one social media platform — Twitter — is to block people.

That could leave her open to lawsuits, based on others filed against elected officials for doing the same thing, including President Donald Trump.

Several people have notified Colorado Politics that the gun-toting rep has blocked them on her @laurenboebert account, one of two that she holds. The second — @repboebert — appears to primarily retweet posts from the first account.
