Kansas state representative Aaron Coleman was recently arrested for driving under the influence. It is his second arrest in the span of a month.
If he looks a little young, it’s because he is. Coleman took office just last year at the age of 19.
It sounds like he still has a lot of growing up to do.
Just the News reports:
Kansas Democratic lawmaker arrested twice in a month
Kansas State Rep. Aaron Coleman was brought into custody for the second time this month after allegedly driving drunk Saturday near Lawrence, Kansas.
He was also arrested on Oct. 30, following allegations of domestic battery. “He allegedly pushed, hit and spit on his 18-year-old brother in a fight that erupted because the brother was going to get baptized, according to court documents,” according to the Associated Press.
Coleman was out on bond after the October incident when he was arrested on Interstate 70 at around 1 a.m. Saturday, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. He was bailed out within hours.
He has been facing calls to resign since before he assumed office. During his 2020 campaign, accusations surfaced of Coleman’s reported history of abusive behavior, and an ex-girlfriend says she was slapped and choked by Coleman. Seven Kansas Democratic lawmakers called for the incumbent representative to resign.

He is not going to last long in politics. If he was smart, this would have been a huge opportunity for him.
