In a video shared on Twitter, Boebert is seen grilling and constantly interrupting city council member Charles Allen in a failed attempt to get him in a "gotcha" moment.

"Did you or did you not decriminalize public urination in Washington DC?" she asks.

"No, we did not," he responds.

"Did you lead the charge to do so?" she asks, rephrasing the original question.

"No, the revised criminal code left that as a criminal charge," Allen explained.

Boebert continues to press him, making bizarre attempts to get him to admit being in support of public urination, even asking "Do you support peeing in public?"

"We have records that show you were in favor of removing that criminal offense, and allowing public urination," she goes on to claim.

Allen continues to say no, reminding Boebert that public urination in DC is in fact still a crime.

Boebert's distraction wasn't welcomed by some of her fellow politicians. Democratic Rep. Becca Balint accused her of "choosing to waste our time... talking about public urination over and over."

Lauren Boebert's own family history brought up

Lauren Boebert is well known for being a Donald Trump loyalist, using trolling political tactics against Democrats, and running with similar far-right representatives such as Marjorie Taylor Green and Matt Gaetz.

In reaction to her distraction at the hearing, some couldn't help but point out that was something closer to home for Boebert to perhaps focus on.

Her husband, Jason Boebert, pleaded guilty and served jail time in 2004 for exposing himself to two women, one of which was underage, at a bowling alley .
