One of the problems with social media is that you end up finding yourself in league with a lot of people that you would never talk to in real life.
So many times do you end up having to deal with people that not that long ago you could shut out of your life fairly easy. It’s one of the reasons my family’s social media accounts are so locked down you couldn’t find them if you were standing next to me at my computer right now. You just don’t need the aggravation in life.
Anyway, combine people thinking they have the right to say whatever they want, and the ability to sue someone for literally anything and you have a dangerous combination.
A former state representative in Colorado sued Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert on Sunday after being blocked from the first-term federal lawmaker’s Twitter account. These Lefties are such cry babies.
Attorneys for Democrat Bri Buentello of Pueblo filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Denver, claiming she was blocked after calling for the Colorado Republican to be recalled in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol by loyalists to President Donald Trump.
The suit seeks a court order for Boebert to unlock Buentello on Twitter and a declaration that the Republican’s actions violated Buentello’s constitutional rights to free speech.
Boebert’s chief of staff, Jeff Small, said her office was not commenting on the case.
“She believes the Constitution begins and ends with the Second Amendment,” said attorney David Lane. “We are trying to teach her that the Constitution is broader and that every provision has to be protected.
Buentello, who lives in Boebert’s district, served a single term in the state House of Representatives before losing a bid for reelection in November.
