GOP stooge and Marjorie Taylor Greene’s “twinsie” Lauen Boebert is once again on the receiving end of a hell of a lot of flack, this time from one of her own former employees.
Boebert regularly brags about her past “success” as a female businesswoman in running Shooter, the MAGA-loving, open-carry diner she runs with her husband, Jayson. In fact, she often states that her congressional election win, coupled with her restaurant industry entrepreneurship is the culmination of her own personal “American Dream.”
But according to a recent report from Mother Jones, Lauren’s own former Shooter’s employees are calling her out on her crap, exposing the fact that Boebert is every bit as horrible at being a boss as she is at being a congresswoman.
Multiple ex-employees of Lauren Boebert’s diner have come forward and revealed that the Colorado congresswoman has a really bad habit of not paying her employees properly, or on time — but yet never seemed to have a problem when it came to ponying up the cash she needed for breast implants.

“Multiple employees say that they were paid in cash, either out of the register or from Boebert’s husband’s wallet, without any taxes deducted,” the report reads. “While many workers were struggling to make ends meet, they say Boebert spent exorbitant sums on breast implants, private schooling for her sons, and a new Cadillac Escalade. They describe her as alternately absent, showing up only when news crews were at the restaurant.”
One former Shooter waitress spoke out and said, “The second the restaurant blew up, her head blew up, and it became something entirely different. And I got to meet a new version of her that is a monster.”
And wouldn’t you know, past employees say that all of Boebert’s public platitudes about gun safety don’t actually amount to a pile of horse manure. One former worker claims the staunchly Right-wing lawmaker actually pointed a loaded gun at him once after he told her that he would have voted in favor of a third Barack Obama term.
“She thought it was hilarious,” the employee revealed.
Josh Boyington, who once worked as a cook at Boebert’s eatery, said that once the GOP darling began heavily shoveling the MAGA agenda, “we lost a lot of our customers.” Boyington claims Boebert became obsessed with social media fame in the age of Trumpism in the GOP.
“She was running that business into the ground with all her speeches on Facebook Live.”
The Mother Jones report goes on to note that the majority of the Shooter employees were of the full belief that the restaurant was only being kept afloat by Lauren’s husband, who works as a consultant in the oil and gas industry in addition to their diner.
“There were times when we were waiting for him to get his check, so that way she could get us our check,” one ex-employee claims. Boyington says, “He’s the one who paid the rent, all the bills, everything.”
“Shooters don’t make no money,” the former who left the establishment in 2017 said. “I left because I don’t even think we were topping $500 a day.”
Hell, even Boebert’s own congressional disclosures confirm that the MAGA-friendly, open-carry eatery lost a nasty $143,000 in 2019 and $226,000 in 2020.
But by God, she got her boobs done.
