The progressive nonprofit that employed Washington, D.C., Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff is refusing to say whether he was fired following his arrest in connection to a mob attack against two Marines in November who were mistaken for being members of a white supremacist group.
One of the victims identified Alcoff, also known as “Chepe,” as the man who “punched him several times about his face, and called him a ‘wet back,’” according to an affidavit filed in Alcoff’s case. Alcoff faces 17 charges, including multiple counts of aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation and terroristic threats.
The Daily Caller News Foundation unmasked Alcoff in a Dec. 19 report as an organizer of Smash Racism DC, the Antifa group responsible for mobbing Fox News host and DCNF co-founder Tucker Carlson’s house in November. The report was an integral factor leading to Alcoff’s arrest, according to the affidavit.
Carter Dougherty, the communications director for Americans for Financial Reform (AFR), the nonprofit organization where Alcoff worked as a campaign organizer and rubbed shoulders with high-profile Democratic lawmakers, told TheDCNF on Tuesday that “as of December, Mr. Alcoff no longer works for AFR.”
