Firebrand Republican politician Lauren Boebert has never shied away from controversy and has routinely used her over-the-top verbiage to draw attention to whatever she’s passionate about. So, it should come as no surprise that the outspoken politician has tied herself closely to former United States President and WWE Hall of Famer, Donald Trump. Not only do their far-right political leanings align but it also appears their love of cutting pro-wrestling-styled promos is equally a unifier.
With Boebert’s unique ability to channel that carnival-like energy, one could be led to believe she has the business in her blood. That notion, however, appears to be being dispelled, once again. As wild as it sounds, Boebert’s mother had a fling with pro wrestler Stan Lane in the 1980s and alleged that the journeyman grappler is the biological father of the US Representative. In 1990, Lane participated in a paternity test and tested negative as the father, but that has not dissuaded Boebert’s mother.
As detailed by The Daily Beast, the lab worker who facilitated Lane’s blood test in ’90 was later found guilty of taking a bribe from an NFL player who was trying to deny paternity in another case. Because of that revelation, Lane agreed to another round of tests last month in an attempt to, hopefully, put the issue to bed at last, and it was found that he is still not the father.
“I can confirm that Stan Lane is not my biological father,” Boebert told the outlet. “I personally have never publicly claimed he was my father—but certainly, that allegation is out there. The Toby Keith song ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ hits a bit differently now.”
In a statement to PWInsider, Lane addressed the second round of negative paternal results.
“My name is Stan Lane,” he began. “I have had two professional careers, one in the world of Professional ‘Wrestling, and the other as an announcer for many years in Powerboat Racing. Early in my wrestling career while I was living in Florida and working for Championship Wrestling from Florida, I received notice that a woman I had a short affair with was accusing me of fathering her child.
“We went through the legal system and completed a court-ordered paternity test. I was declared not to be the father and the case was dismissed. In spite of the court verdict, the mother of the child – who turned out to be Congresswoman Lauren Boebert – her mother has continued to stick to her original claim. I agreed to take another DNA Paternity test with Lauren Boebert in May 2023. I allowed Lauren to handle the chain of custody for the samples to alleviate any doubt with the results.
“The results came back on May 11, 2023. They were conclusive that I had a 0.0% chance of being the biological father. Once we both reviewed the results Lauren and I agreed that this matter is settled, and I accepted Lauren’s apology on behalf of herself and her mother. This situation and the numerous false claims made against me over the years has been stressful for me and my family.
“I feel my otherwise good reputation has been tarnished considerably. I and other close members of my inner circle have been dragged into this as well. I have also been followed by the news media so that they could get the scoop on this topic. I ask that I be taken out of this equation since a conclusive result has been given to both sides.
“While I was fortunate to have a career in the spotlight for 30 + years it is my desire to step back and enjoy my retirement with my wife. My interactions with Mrs. Boebert have been pleasant and enjoyable. I wish Lauren all the best in her future endeavors. If she continues the search for her biological father I hope she finds the answers she has been looking for.”
