A Washington D.C. Antifa leader who was arrested for multiple felonies has now lost his job at an organization closely associated with the Democrat Party.
Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, also known as “Chepe,” was arrested on January 10 and charged with a series of felonies, including aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation and terroristic threats, in connection with a violent Antifa attack against a pair of Marines in Philadelphia that occurred in November.
The arrest came after a deep investigation into the incident conducted by Daily Caller which dug up a lot of information about the attack. And unmasked Alcoff as one of the perpetrators. Daily Caller tried to alert his employer, a liberal group called Americans for Financial Reform (AFR), but the organization ignored the requests for comment.
As Daily Caller noted this week:
TheDCNF unmasked Alcoff on Dec. 18, but his former employer, Americans for Financial Reform (AFR), ignored numerous requests for comment in the ensuing six weeks inquiring whether it was aware of Alcoff’s extreme and violent rhetoric or if it planned on taking any action in regards to the radical’s statements.
Instead, AFR attempted to obscure references to Alcoff on its website on Dec. 19, only to reverse the modifications less than an hour after TheDCNF caught onto the changes.
As it happens Americans for Financial Reform is very close to a number of high-powered Democrats:
As campaign manager for AFR, Alcoff was quoted in press releases from Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, appeared at an event with Democratic Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia outside the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in March and has been pictured alongside Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown and California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.
But at the same time this dangerous Antifa goon was working with high powered Democrats, he was also helping to organize the violent Antifa group, Smash Racism DC.
After repeated attempts to get AFR to answer for its employee, the group finally — if not belatedly — fired the goon from their organization.
Naturally, AFR is now just pretending they never heard of Alcoff and trying to just move on as if nothing ever happened.
