According to Politico, Buck, who officially resigned last Friday, shared the not-so-flattering comparison during a recent Rotary Club meeting.

He told the crowd that he is constantly asked about Boebert's many scandals but claims he has "not said a thing" about them.

Buck mentioned Boebert's move "across the mountains" to run for re-election in his 4th District, her ex-husband Jayson, who is facing "child abuse felony charges," and her son, who is also facing felony charges.

He also couldn't pass up the chance to bring up that time Boebert got caught "groping a man in a movie theater and then giving the finger to every single police officer on her way out."

"She makes George Santos look like a saint," Buck added, referring to the New York Congressman who was expelled in December.

Buck has been in an ongoing feud with Boebert after he announced his early retirement from Congress.

A special election was scheduled to fill his seat on the same day as the primary elections, causing huge problems for her re-election effort.

On Thursday, Colorado Republicans selected candidate Greg Lopez as their nominee to fill Buck's vacant seat.

In response to Buck's recent criticism, Boebert told The Hill that he is "so irrelevant," adding, "I really don’t care what he's asked about me."
