(Tea Party PAC) – Remember back when Maxine Waters was openly calling for Trump supporters to be harassed in public?
Well, looks like someone took her up on it—someone tied to her directly.
In November, two Marine Corps Reservists were attacked, maced, and robbed in Philadelphia by a mob of Antifa members who called them “Nazis” and “white supremacists,” according to police.
Law enforcement reported that the Marines were attacked two blocks away from an Antifa rally. It is not known whether or not the Marines had attended the rally.
On Januar 10th, Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, AKA “Chepe,” a DC Antifa leader, was arrested and charged with multiple felonies for his involvement in the attack against the Marines.
Alcoff is now facing 17 charges including multiple counts of aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, conspiracy and terroristic threats, and one count of robbery while inflicting serious bodily injury, the Daily Caller reports.
Here he is:

Fox News reports:
On Monday, the 37-year-old has a court date in connection with charges he’s facing in Philadelphia that include aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation for allegedly being part of an Antifa mob in November that attacked two Marines, Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres, both Hispanic. Alcoff and two others charged in the attack have pleaded not guilty.
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.
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.
Here’s Alcoff next to Maxine Waters:
