The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has threatened Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) with legal action over Venmo rent payments she made from her campaign account.

Boebert reimbursed her campaign for the $6,650 worth of payments.

A spokesperson for the FEC says Boebert can still face legal action for use of personal funds even if they are reimbursed.

According to The Denver Post, “Each of the four payments in question (two for $2,000 each and another two for $1,325 each) were amended to show payments for the same amount, description and on the same days to John Pacheco, whose address is the same as Shooters Grill in Rifle, which Boebert owns. Pacheco’s relationship to Boebert was not immediately clear.”
