U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, a far-right Republican known for her homophobic and transphobic rhetoric, is dating a man who co-owns a bar that has hosted LGBTQ+ events.

The arts group did not identify the couple, but surveillance video obtained by a CNN affiliate shows Boebert and a companion leaving the theater.

And Boebert owned up to her behavior in a social media post, saying, “I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!”

The man with Boebert has now been identified as Gallagher, co-owner of Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar in Aspen.

Social media posts show Hooch has hosted LGBTQ+ events, such as a women’s party for Aspen Gay Ski Week and a drag performance called “A Winter Wonderland Burlesque & Drag Show.”.

Boebert, who is in her second term representing a Colorado district in Congress, is known for denouncing drag shows and everything else associated with the LGBTQ+ community.

In May, Boebert filed for divorce from her husband of 18 years, Jason Boebert. »

Newly discovered correspondence suggests that the second world war-era Pope Pius XII had detailed information from a trusted German Jesuit that up to 6,000 Jews and Poles were being gassed each day in German-occupied Poland.

The letter from the priest, the Rev Lothar Koenig, to Pius’s secretary, a fellow German Jesuit named the Rev Robert Leiber, is dated 14 December 1942.

Pius’s supporters have long insisted that he couldn’t speak out strongly against the Nazis because of fears of reprisals. »
