Hashim Tarik Coates had a pretty good record working on Morgan Carroll’s campaign to head the Democratic Party and her congressional bid, as well as Andrew Romanoff’s congressional election in 2014.

Lucky for him, he won’t have a jail record for that prostitute he had sex with or for firing a gun into the prostitute’s car, just the arrest record.

Coates copped a plea deal for those charges plus criminal mischief and admitted his guilt in exchange for probation.

Coates was planning to run for city council but changed his mind after he was arrested, while still maintaining his innocence.
