won his primary race for the Kansas House and is now running unopposed

  • Aaron Coleman, a 19-year-old who admitted to blackmail, revenge porn, and bullying, has won his primary race for the Kansas House of Representatives.
  • Coleman is currently running unopposed as a Democrat for the state's November election, according to KSHB Kansas City.
  • One woman told The Kansas City Star that when she and Coleman were both in middle school, he obtained a naked picture of her and sent it around when she denied to give him additional photos.
  • A spokesperson for Kansas' Democratic Governor Laura Kelly told the Associated Press that Coleman is "not fit to serve in the Legislature."
interesting times, guessing he is doing well since most people simply look at the R or the D and don't research who they are voting for.

I know Kansas needs another Republican like the country needs more coronavirus, but I wouldn't mind seeing the little bastard lose.

Edit: I should've read that more thoroughly. There's no one running against him. 😒

He needs to lose to a write-in.

when in doubt, vote yaxo.

(that's my slogan)

If a former ally turned opponent ever claims to know "where the bodies are buried", you should be ready to present the public with proof of ownership of a crematorium.

How's this for an interesting turn of events??

...With no Republican opponent, Coleman seemed almost certain to ascend to office. However, Coleman announced on Sunday that he was withdrawing from the race. Officially, he’s quitting because his father is sick, and a severe illness in the family is one of few reasons a primary winner can be taken off the ballot in Kansas. Everyone knows Coleman is really quitting because of the backlash to his self-confessed sexual extortion of a 13-year-old girl when he was 14 years old, as well as his stalking and bullying of two other underage victims, one of whom says Coleman berated her about her weight and her teeth until she attempted suicide.
(My bold.)

On the one hand I'm glad this guy is going away. On the other...what happens in Kansas when you have a race for office and no one is running? I'm assuming the governor can appoint someone until a special election, but I don't know that for sure.

It's probably established in the state's bylaws or state constitution, not sure which. Am I the only one that finds the phrase "underage victims" weird when the perpetrator was not an adult?
