A previous state lawmaker has submitted a suit against Repbublican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert of Colorado declaring that she broke the First Change by obstructing constituents on Twitter.

Boebert has blocked at least 12 people on Twitter, with many of the accounts belonging to constituents living in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, according to Colorado Politics.

Former Democratic State Agent Bri Buentello, one of the blocked constituents, took legal action against Boebert in federal court on Sunday for infringing on her complimentary speech rights. Lauren Boebert at Colorado rally

Buentello is looking for a preliminary injunction mandating that Boebert stop breaching the Constitution “she swore an oath to ‘maintain, protect and safeguard'” by uncloging critics from her district.

Buentello asserted that Boebert is “not above criticism” in a Sunday interview with Colorado Politics

In a Sunday statement, Lane stated: “Our client, Brianna Buentello, is a former elected state legislator who lives in Boebert’s district and is very worried that Boebert has no knowledge of, nor concern with, the United States Constitution beyond the notion that somehow everybody can bring guns anywhere they so desire.

“Boebert has actually not learned that lesson,” he stated.

In 2018, a federal court judge ruled that it was unconstitutional for Trump to block people on Twitter over their dissenting political opinions.

Days after the judgment, Eugene Gu and Brandon Neely, two plaintiffs who were blocked by Trump, told Newsweek that the president still hadn’t complied with the judgment.
