Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert has found herself at the center of controversy... over her alleged actions at a Beetlejuice performance.

As reported by the New York Post, new footage appears to refute Boebert's claim that "heavy fog machines" were responsible for the smoke that led to her expulsion from a performance of Beetlejuice at Denver's Buell Theater last weekend. Instead, a newly released video appears to show her puffing away on an electronic cigarette - a stark contrast to her vehement denials about vaping during the performance.

Captured on Sunday night, the video reveals Boebert attending the show with her Democratic date, Aspen bar owner Quinn Gallagher, 46.

According to 9News, which obtained the footage, the congresswoman was also spotted snapping flash photos, dancing solo, and being confronted by a pregnant audience member who was sitting behind her. Check out the footage below:

The pregnant woman who spoke out against Boebert described her and her date's behavior as "outrageous" in an interview with the Denver Post.

"I've never seen anyone act like that before," said the unidentified Denver local. She also revealed that she was unaware Boebert was a member of Congress when initially lodging her complaint.

Drew Sexton, Boebert's campaign manager, confirmed her ejection but continued to deny the vaping allegations. “I can confirm the stunning and salacious rumors: in her personal time, congresswoman Lauren Boebert is indeed a supporter of the performing arts (gasp!),” said Sexton.

Boebert herself later tweeted, "It’s true, I did thoroughly enjoy the AMAZING Beetlejuice at the Buell Theatre and I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!"

The unfolding drama further intensifies the spotlight on Rep. Lauren Boebert, who is currently running for re-election in Colorado's 3rd Congressional District. This incident raises crucial questions about the conduct of public figures during private events and how they handle the repercussions.
