Eric Nelson censured

Eric Nelson

Earlier this month, we talked about Eric Nelson who is a member of the Aurora, Colorado School Board and he ran for election to the State Legislature in Colorado’s 42d District. For some stupid reason, he posted the above picture on his campaign website which touched off a furor among Colorado veterans with good reasons.

Last week, he was censured by the school board in a vote of 5-2;

Nelson and board member Barbara Yamrick voted against the resolution. The board had no discussion before voting.

Nelson’s exaggerated resume came to light during his campaign for a seat in the Colorado House of Representatives. He was handily defeated in the June Democratic primary.

The Board had asked him to resign, but, well, you know phonies.

Here’s our FOIA for his military records;

Eric Nelson FOIA

Eight weeks at Lackland and back on the street. No awards, no nuthin’. He spent more time in the Delayed Entry Program waiting for a spot in the Air Force for him than he spent on active duty.

Now, his academic credentials are being questioned, too. I’d get him away from the kids ASAP.

  1. They want to be seen as heroes but don’t want to do hero’s stuff.

    Nelson got a vote. I kid you not. He actually got to vote on whether or not he would be censured for his bullshit. Some dame by the name of Barbara Yamarick/Ramadick/Whatever joined Nelson in a no vote. Idiots.

  3. Perry Gaskill says:

    There are some interesting aspects to the school board situation with the primary one being that it’s almost impossible for Nelson to be kicked out. According to a story in the Aurora Sentinel, “Nelson meets the legal standard for a school board member due to the fact that he is over the age of 18, is a U.S. citizen and resides within district boundaries.” Apparently, he could be a serial slasher and it wouldn’t matter.

    Another factoid is that Nelson has evidently said he would resign the board seat, but only if the board appointed another person of color. The seven-member board currently has one white dude; all the rest are either minority, women, or both. Funny how that whole diversity thing works.

    Censored.

    Should be neutered….

    Just saying.

    Here’s his updated bio on the school board website:

    Board of Education Director Eric Nelson

    Eric D. Nelson was elected in 2013 for a four-year term.

    One of the other members of the school board is a person of color, and she voted against him…

  6. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Love that “of color” business, especially since black is the absence of hue. Up is down and down is up. What’s next to replace “of color” when it is added to the you-can’t-say-that-anymore list?

  7. OldManchu says:

    Soak it up you piece of fucking shit!

  8. Mike says:

    You must admit he showed great restraint in not awarding himself the Medal of Honor! /sarc

  9. Bobo says:

    We are supposed to disregard race except when that disregard is to the disadvantage of a person of race. You guys need to read up on how we do things now.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Can you just imagine if a white knucklehead had said what he did, that he would consider resigning if assured that a white person was named his replacement? Cripes. The DOJ would be called in, just for starters. We are living in insane times.

    Let me channel his train of thought:
    Behind in the poles? Better double-time down to the local Army-Navy Store and scare up some Class-A’s…better get some nice ‘fruit salad’…these gold clusters look shinny, so they gotta be better than these silver ones…ooops, don’t forget the gold tooth. Nothing says high-ranking officer like a gold cap…All I need is a picture of me in this costume and the election is the bag…
    What an asshole. May the fallout from his actions be swift & long-lasting.

  11. Smaj says:

    Wow, censure, that’s really strict. I’d get my children out of whatever school that board has responsibility over like yesterday. There is more accountability at your local McDonald’s.

  12. C2Show says:

    LOL good ole 319 SQ, place for injured and awaiting the boot! Lovely stigma.

  13. wonder what AFSC he pretended to be ?
    maybe he forgot a AF longevity ribbon, I never knew a major that didn’t have one…sure sign of a wannabe or a fake that doesn’t know diddly squat
    Fuku Major Douchebag, you couldn’t even complete satisfactorily AFBMT !!!…
    bet he votes for Hillary, birds of feather flock together. Yeah that’s it they can hang out together drink chardonnay and she can tell the story of being under sniper fire and how she has fought that vast right wing conspiracy plus her vast contributions to Amerika as a senator & SoS(shit on a shingle)and the major could BS how he was ace of the base

    • C2Show says:

      Hard to tell from that badge in the picture. He gave him an imaginary Senior level badge though, as it has star on it. It looks like a globe it looks like an intelligence badge. Could be wrong, it could be Support badge like Manpower or Admin.

      He really thought hard about this one…

    Nothing says look at me I’m an attention whore like the bluetooth in the ear…

    One of our vendors used to send in this equipment mechanic who wore that thing, I told him he wasn’t allowed in my plant with that stupid shit in his ear because it interferes with normal hearing and creates a safety hazard. He didn’t like that but he had no choice, my shop my rules.

    He wore it while at another competitor’s shop and ended up crushing his fingers because he didn’t hear a machine auto cycle start…out of work for over a year and still doesn’t have the same manual dexterity he did prior to the incident.

    Nothing is so fucking important on a phone that you should risk injury by limiting your senses.

    Back to Mr. Nelson…hope you get all the Karma you deserve for those bullshit tales you’ve no doubt told.

  16. Willy Pete says:

    Are those mirrored shades he’s wearing with his Class A’s?

    Holy shit! If I’d done that, I’d still be doing pushups. And I retired six years ago.

  17. Green Thumb says:

    He can always get a job at All-Points Logistics.

  18. David Pomeroy says:

    You all missed the obvious one. “Major Nelson”? Really? Where’s Jeannie and Dr. Bellows to back him up?
