Bauman suspends Council campaign over ‘childish’ social media posts

Derek Bauman

Democratic Cincinnati City Council candidate Derek Bauman suspended his campaign Friday night citing decade-old social media posts "that can best be described as childish."  

"While I believe I’ve shown I am a different person now, there is no escaping the fact that words matter, and that my words were sometimes hurtful," Bauman wrote on Facebook. "But I wrote them, and I take full responsibility for my actions. No excuses. I am deeply sorry to anyone and everyone who is offended by what I said. Sometimes saying you’re sorry isn’t enough."

The decision comes after a handful of Hamilton County Democratic leaders were anonymously sent copies of Bauman's old tweets earlier this week, a source told The Enquirer. The Enquirer has seen some of the tweets. They are racist, misogynistic and homophobic.
