This is a young man who appears to have some serious issues. I would say the same thing about a person of any political party or ideology. He admitted to all sorts of bad behavior and so far has plenty of defenders who support him. He barely won against the Democrat incumbent in his district during the primary. Here are some of the things he has done – allegedly abusing girl friends, blackmail, sent texts threatening to shoot a girl at a school when he was 14 (he’s 20 now) and kill himself afterwards, sent revenge porn at 14 when a female wouldn’t send him nude photos, and he tweeted he was considering a hit on the governor who is also a Democrat. He admitted some of these things. He won a House seat as many of his supporters think he’s anti-elite. Democrats even ran a candidate against him in the election earlier this week who lost to him. His supporters need to stop encouraging him as they may get what they want should he follow through, and I expect some of them may find themselves caught in the crossfire.
Why he thinks ordering a hit on anyone, much less a governor who is a member of his own party, is an okay thing is mind-boggling. I pray he gets the help he appears to need.
He talks like he’s a misunderstood young man who didn’t get the mental health services he needed growing up and blames everyone but himself for his issues. As someone who lives in Kansas, he could have qualified for cheap mental health services had he availed himself of the opportunity. Here’s an article posted by the Kansas City Star: https://www.kansascity.com/opinion/editorials/article247008527.html. I don’t know why he thinks nobody can stop him, but he may find out how wrong he is should he be unwise enough to pursue this course of action.
In a tweet Wednesday, Coleman wrote that Kelly would face an “extremely bloody” primary in two years, and that “I’m not playing around. People will realize one day when I call a hit out on you it’s real.”
Coleman later suggested in an interview with the Associated Press that perhaps “hit” wasn’t the best word choice, but he also added, “Really, at this point, nobody can really stop me.”
