Lauren Boebert says her frisky Beetlejuice theater guy is NOT getting a second date because he is a DEMOCRAT – after footage of her vaping and groping him before being kicked out left her red-faced
Lauren Boebert has revealed her romance with an Aspen bar owner was over after DailyMail.com revealed he was a Democrat who hosted drag shows.
The Colorado congresswoman and Quinn Gallagher sparked outrage on September 10 after they were caught on camera fondling each other during a Beetlejuice performance in Denver and were kicked out of the theater.
She told me on Monday TMZ she wouldn’t have a second date with him. “I learned to check party affiliations before going on a date,” she said.
She called him a “great man” but said they would not date again.
“He is a private citizen and we have parted ways peacefully at this time,” she said. “Great man, great friend, and I wish him all the best.”

DailyMail.com revealed on Wednesday that Boebert and Gallagher (pictured), a divorced father of a 16-year-old son, have been secretly dating for several months
Boebert, who announced in May that she was divorcing her husband of 18 years, was spotted during the performance taking selfies, dancing wildly in her seat and vaping. When a pregnant lady sitting behind her asked her to stop, she called her a “sad and miserable woman.”
Boebert and Gallagher were ejected from the theater by ushers, with an embarrassed Gallagher offering to buy the pregnant woman cocktails as an apology.
Boebert gave the finger to the ushers as she left.
It subsequently emerged that Gallagher, identified by DailyMail.com, was a registered Democrat whose bar hosted drag shows – which Boebert has described as immoral.
The 36-year-old grandmother said drag shows offend her Christian beliefs and tweeted: “Take your kids to CHURCH, not to bars.”
The Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar in Aspen, co-owned by Gallagher, hosted “a winter Wonderland Burlesque & Drag Show,” according to social media posts.
Aspen Gay Ski Week hosted “an evening of cocktails, appetizers and laughter” at Hooch in January 2020, according to a Facebook post.

It’s not clear when Gallagher and Boebert’s relationship became romantic, but the bar owner is originally from the congressman’s hometown of Rifle, Colorado, and he still has family there.
It is just a stone’s throw from the controversial congresswoman’s house in Silt.
Boebert initially denied the vaping claims, claiming the smoke was actually from a fog machine, and issued a sarcastic statement that downplayed the anger.
But she made a surprising about-face on Friday night, blaming her behavior on her “public and difficult divorce.”
“The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I am truly sorry,” she wrote in a statement.
“There is no perfect blueprint for going through a public and difficult divorce, which has created a challenging personal time for me and my entire family over the past few months.”

Boebert, 36, denied vaping – despite doing so in full public view and on camera. Her spokesperson said there had been “a misunderstanding by someone sitting next to her” who had not noticed the “heavy fog machines and electronic cigarettes used during the piece.”
She also danced in her seat, much to the annoyance of other theatergoers – including the pregnant woman sitting behind her, who asked her to stop and was called a “sad and miserable woman.”

“I was a little too eccentric,” she said.
