  • Tyler Drum was allegedly fired after visiting the office of a fellow aide, a Republican
  • When he was fired, he was only told that Democrat leadership was uncomfortable with him befriending a Republican
  • Working as an aide was Drum’s first job after graduating
  • 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 Reform that Aguilar did not explain why he had been fired.

    “I thought this would happen on the Republican side, now I’m a disenchanted Democrat.”   

    “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.

    “This was my first job after graduating, [the Democrats] don’t care about my situation, they don’t care to know who I am.”

    Drum, who is a registered Democrat, is disappointed in his firing.

    “I thought this would happen on the Republican side, now I’m a disenchanted Democrat,” he said.

    Senator Aguilar, the Democrat’s Assistant Majority Leader in the Colorado Senate, did not respond to requests for comment from Campus Reform in time for publication.
