A specter is haunting the United States, a specter of progressives winning against the establishment in the Democratic primaries. Cori Bush, Jamaal Bowman, Rashida Tlaib, Mondaire Jones, and the list goes on. Among those names is one 19 years old man, who defeated a seven-term incumbent in Kansas: Aaron Coleman.
Like Cori Bush, Aaron’s victory could have been an inspirational story. A young boy of 19 years of age, with an incredible life story to tell, who had never held office, who was outspent 10-1 by his opponent, pitted against a seven-term incumbent, corporate-backed, establishment candidate. But it wasn’t. Instead, his story was mired by controversy.
In this article, we delve into who Aaron Coleman’s story, the good, the bad, everything.
Allegations Against Aaron Coleman
First, let’s address the elephant in the room, the controversy that pretty much discredited Aaron’s otherwise incredible victory. After Aaron won the Democratic primary, there were protests by some women in social media. They were accusing Aaron of harassment, bullying, revenge-porn, blackmail.
When Aaron was in middle school, he constantly harassed and fat-shamed a girl in the sixth-grade. So grave were Aaron’s actions that the girl considered committing suicide. To a different girl, he blackmailed to circulate her nude photos if she did not send more nudes to him. When she refused, he did follow-through and released the nude pictures.
It was understandable that the girls who suffered from his actions were upset that their tormentor was now a victorious politician. And what Aaron did was wrong on so many levels. What was less understandable was the fact that the Democratic party establishment was comfortable with using the mistakes he did when he was 12 years old to undermine his victor.
Especially, considering that Aaron had already acknowledged and apologized for the wrongs he did when he was young and did not know better. As soon as the allegations surfaced, instead of denying them to protect his political career, he came out clean. He also said that he had tried to reach the victims to make amends and he wished that he could do something to repair the damage he had caused.
To understand, why the establishment of the Democratic Party is hell-bent against Aaron, one needs to understand his background and his politics.
