D.C. Antifa leader Joseph Alcoff is facing charges for the assault of two Marines. At the time of the assault, Alcoff used racial epithets against the Marines, calling them racists and Hitler. He is also the leader of the mob who surrounded Tucker Carlson’s house. It turns out that Alcoff has extremely close ties to the Democrat party. His ties to Sherrod Brown and Maxine Waters were very close, and he appeared with them often and was invited to official meetings with the two. He also participated in online broadcasts for the Democrats. The Marines were innocent bystanders and not a part of either protesting group.

But while Democratic officials are distancing themselves from Alcoff now, until recently he was a well-connected, aspiring political player in Washington who may have even had a hand in key policy proposals.
His endorsement apparently mattered when several congressional Democrats in February 2018 issued press releases with his quote backing their bill on regulating payday lenders.
As the payday campaign manager for the liberal group Americans for Financial Reform, Alcoff participated in congressional Democratic press conferences, was a guest on a House Democratic podcast and met with senior officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau from 2016 through 2018.
He was also pictured with now-House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking Democrat on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio. Both committees oversee financial regulatory policies Alcoff was advocating.
Alcoff met with then CFPB Director Richard Cordray and other senior CFPB officials on April 2016, again in March 2017 and a third time in May 2017, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
