Watson Coleman slams Vaughn for homophobic rant

Congresswoman calls Trenton official’s comments ‘disgusting’

By David Wildstein, May 03 2020 8:17 pm

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Ewing) is calling out Trenton Councilwoman Robin Vaughn for an astounding homophobic outburst on a Saturday conference call intended to brief local officials on the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

“There’s no place for an elected official who hurls homophobic slurs or cast aspersions on colleagues parents,” said Watson Coleman. “It’s disgusting and the people of Trenton deserve better.”

Vaughn’s comments were mostly aimed at Mayor Reed Gusciora, who is openly gay, but she also went after another councilman, Joseph Harrison.

“Get the fuck outta here, you bitch. Goodbye. You better get off the phone you fucking coward,” the West Ward councilwoman said. “Go suck Reed’s dick now, motherfucker. Just go do that.”

This is the second time Watson Coleman has needed to slap down Vaughn, who is finishing her second year on the city council.

Last September, Watson Coleman condemned some Trenton officials, including Vaughn, for making ant-Semitic slurs during a council meeting.
