Skip to comments.Colorado Democrat fires gay aide allegedly for visiting Republican office
Posted on 01/05/2014 4:31:39 AM PST by lowbridge
Tyler Drum, a 21-year-old homosexual aide to Democrat state Senator Irene Aguilar, was fired on the spot from his position in the Colorado Senate because he allegedly visited the office of a fellow college aide who happens to work for a Republican.
Drum, a 2013 graduate of Colorado State University, told Campus Reformthat Aguilar did not explain why he had been fired.
She just said leadership was uncomfortable with me befriending Republicans, Drum said.
Drum took the aide position after completing Colorado State University's capitol internship program, a class designed to teach students about the legislative process.
Partisanship runs much deeper than I thought, Drum said. There is no real interest in compromise.
Now unemployed, Tyler joins the over 12% of 20-24 year olds unable to find employment.

Afraid they might wise up and leave their party I’d guess.

Not everything you learn in college comes in the classroom. Too bad he already graduated. Which leads to a question; why would a college grad take an intern position in the first place? Sounds like something a student would be doing as part of their course load.
> why would a college grad take an intern position in the first place?
Because nothing else is available, he had connections, and the pay beats Mickey D’s?
If a Pepsi driver should ever be discovered with Coke in his ‘fridge ....
“Afraid they might wise up and leave their party Id guess.”
Perrhaps what you said was meant in jest but you hit the nail squarely on the head. The Left is terrified and will not tolerate any other dialogue except their own The reason is simple, their positions are indefensible and they know it.

Democrats are like the dysfunctional family of an alcoholic or drug addict. They have “family secrets.” Those secrets must never be mentioned outside the family and are ignored inside the family; other than, “Billy, go bring daddy his ‘medicine.’” The official acted in the same way a drug abuser would react if his son befriended the kid of the cop next door.
May I ask the obvious? What does the aide’s sexual orientation have to do with this story?
I fail to see the relevance of the young man’s sexual proclivities. Is the writer suggesting that the canning is more heinous because the fellow is a homosexual?
“The reason is simple, their positions are indefensible and they know it.”
Diversity is a one way street.
Why is it necessary for us to know the sexual proclivities of the aide?
If it had been a Republican that fired him it certainly would be.
I have no idea.
However, we can use that to our advantage by taking a page out of the dnc handbook of deceit:
“The democrats hates gays!”
I dont know. I didnt write the article.
So typical. Freedom of assembly has no place in a lib’s sick mind.
—so much for “reaching across the aisle”—
The intern explains it all in the comments section. As to his homosexuality, apparently he once worked with Log Cabin Republicans which was found out by his employers. He also has to deny that he was a mole! Seems he was just an ordinary person interested in both sides of the issues.
“May I ask the obvious? What does the aides sexual orientation have to do with this story?”
It denotes his ‘specialness’ as compared to the rest of us drones.
Point well taken.
Perhaps he has learned something about the party that professes to support him.
Maybe Senator Cruz can find him an interns position in his office so his education can continue to the place it should have been at school, in more ways than one.
Huge opportunity for s string of teachable moments. More to the point of Phil Robertson’s full context of his comments. Love the sinner, hate the sin.
Drum was not an intern. The intern program was a part of his undergraduate program. When he graduated, he was hired as an aide. That's why students sign up for intern programs. The article makes it quite clear.
He will still vote Democrat, I bet.
Giving and taking.
Imagine the faux outrage if a Republican had fired a gay aide for consorting with Democrats.
1) Parents willing to support him.
2) He wants to change the world.
3) Government, a la Alexandria Va., is where the money is these days.
Democrats, the party of tolerance, diversity and compassion.
Actually, at least where Frito Lay is concerned, that’s absolutely true. You’d better not have any snack or drink at your desk that’s not one of their products, or you’ll be “exploring new opportunities” in short order.
Luckily for me, I love Fritos corn chips. Drinks are from parent PepsiCo. I think the only exception to that might be, or was, “Dublin” Dr. Pepper due to the local and longstanding existence of that particular soda.
Good for the goose...
Just like bosses strolling their parking lots looking for Obammy bumper stickers because they have to trim the rolls because of Obammycare.
If you want to hang with the other guys, go right ahead, but I aint gonna pay you do it.
You are FIRED !
He might have said he was recruiting.
Sounds like they have a few skeletons they want to keep hidden.
The question I have is, will he continue to vote Democrat? And if so, how many times (in each election)?
Seems to me Tyler Drum is learning first-hand about the "tolerance" of the left! ROFL! Keep voting and working for Democrats, dumbass!
