Democratic Revenge Pornographer Heads to Kansas State House

Aaron Coleman defeats incumbent Stan Frownfelter

A Democrat who has admitted to publicizing pornographic images of underage girls without permission is headed to the Kansas House of Representatives.

20-year-old Aaron Coleman ousted state representative Stan Frownfelter by an almost 2-1 margin, but his bid was marred by his admission that he had harassed young girls and circulated a naked photo of another teen. Coleman also copped to "slapp[ing] and chok[ing]" en ex-girlfriend.

Coleman also urged Republican candidates to avoid wearing masks in the hopes they would contract COVID-19.

Coleman’s campaign was marred by confusion over the summer after he briefly announced that he would withdraw from the race and allow Frownfelter to replace him on the ballot. He quickly reversed course and defeated Frownfelter, who ran a write-in-campaign, on Tuesday night.
