House Democrats blasted socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti on Friday night, accusing him of bigotry, which comes as more and more Democrats in Washington, D.C. have expressed their desire for him to be fired.

The House Democrats slammed Chakrabarti from their official Twitter account of this tweet from Chakrabarti: “I think the point still stands. I don’t think people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system. And the same could even be said of the Southern Democrats. I don’t believe Sharice is a racist person, but her votes are showing her to enable a racist system.”

House Democrats wrote: “Who is this guy and why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color? Her name is Congresswoman Davids, not Sharice. She is a phenomenal new member who flipped a red seat blue. Keep Her Name Out Of Your Mouth.”
