Washington, DC – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC)’s newly-hired, first-ever chief technical officer has clear history of proclaiming her anti-police beliefs on social media.
DCCC Chair Representative Sean Patrick Maloney announced on Monday that the organization has hired Erica Joy Baker to fill the newly-minted role, FOX News reported.
“These new additions to the DCCC are seasoned operatives who know what it takes to win,” Maloney said after the hiring of Baker and other new employees.
“I am thrilled to welcome these talented operatives on board, and I look forward to our continued work as we assemble the team that will protect Democrats’ House majority in 2022,” Maloney said.
Baker, who formerly worked for Slack, GitHub, Google, and Microsoft, has openly shared her “hate” for all law enforcement in various social media posts over the years.
Many of her anti-police tweets have recently been deleted.
“If the cops kill me, the only way to ‘sully’ my legacy is to *not* be out in the streets,” a tweet from September of 2020 read, according to the Daily Caller. “if the cops kill me, burn every cop precinct to the ground. if the cops kill me, shut down the highways and throw the teargas back at em when they try you. gtfo with that ‘sully’ shit.”
In June of the same year, Baker referred to law enforcement officers as murderous “pieces of s—t.”
“My favorite take thus far: ‘we have an epidemic in sf: giant pieces of s–t walking around killing sf residents. you can try to re-form a piece of s–t, but what you’re left with is still a piece of s–t,’” she wrote, according to the Daily Caller.
“I hate the police. The institution of policing, with it’s history of criminalizing and weaponizing blackness, is a farce. And I hate it,” Baker tweeted on April 19, 2016, according to FOX News.
“F—k 12” is also among one of her most-used phrases, the news outlet reported.
“F–k this institution founded on the capture and killing of black bodies, this modern day slave patrol we call the police,” another since-deleted 2016 tweet read, according to FOX News.
The DCCC also hired Original Gangsta Killas street gang member Dyjuan Tatro as a senior advisor for strategic outreach in early February, FOX News reported.
Tatro, who referred to law enforcement officers as “white supremacists” in a since-deleted tweet, earned his bachelor’s degree while serving six years in prison for his role in a racketeering conspiracy, according to the New York Post.
He was already serving time for having shot two rival gang members when he was convicted of the racketeering offense in 2011.
Tatro also confessed to making at least $12,000 per month during his time as a drug dealer and crack cocaine trafficker, and admitted he participated in the “razor slashing” of a victim in 2002, according to the New York Post.
He was released from prison in 2017 and now touts himself as an advocate for prison inmates seeking educational opportunities.
“The answer to white supremacists storming the Capitol is not to give more money to a different group of white supremacists who’s [sic] job it is to uphold white supremacy,” he wrote in response to a post about the U.S. Capitol Police Department’s budget on Jan. 8, according to FOX News.
In June of 2020, Tatro likened police reform to reviving Nazism.
“To all those people who want to reform the police because all cops aren’t bad, should we just go ahead and revive Nazism because all Nazis weren’t bad? I didn’t think so. Case closed,” he tweeted, according to FOX News.
Maloney called Tatro an “extraordinary individual” back in February after critics raised concerns about his anti-police comments, FOX News reported.
“It’s a pretty extraordinary individual you’re talking about,” he said during an interview with Politico. “You’re talking about deleted tweets that were before we hired him.”
